Brazil Announce Their Copa America 2019 Squad, One Big Name Missing From The Team
Brazil have announced their squad ahead of the upcoming Copa América 2019.
Brazil Head coach Tite will be hoping that his side are able to capture the trophy on home soil and he has a stacked squad of players to use for the competition.
From Liverpool‘s Alisson and Manchester City’s Ederson to choose from between the sticks to Paris Saint-Germain’s Neymar and Reds’ Roberto Firmino leading the frontline, Tite has plenty of world-class players at his disposal.
However, there are also some other noticeable names missing from the squad. In fact, Liverpool’s Fabinho has missed out on a spot, despite having a solid season for Jürgen Klopp’s side.
Real Madrid duo Marcelo and Vinícius Júnior, Juventus’ Douglas Costa, West Ham United’s Felipe Anderson, and Tottenham Hotspur’s Lucas Moura have all been left out of the squad.
