Liverpool midfielder Fabinho has been left out of the Brazil squad

Liverpool midfielder Fabinho and Tottenham forward Lucas Moura have both been left out of Brazil’s squad for the Copa America.

Brazil coach Tite announced his 23-man squad for this summer’s tournament on Friday and while there was no room for Fabinho, Liverpool duo Alisson and Roberto Firmino have been included.

Lucas, who scored a hat-trick for Tottenham against Ajax to send his side to the Champions League final, has also been overlooked along with Manchester United pair Fred and Andreas Pereira, Manchester City full-back Danilo and West Ham’s Felipe Anderson.

Manchester City trio Ederson, Fernandinho and Gabriel Jesus have been named in the squad ahead of the tournament’s opening match against Bolivia on June 15 (1.30am UK time), as well as Everton forward Richarlison.

There is no room for Real Madrid youngster Vinicius Junior or 31-year-old left-back Marcelo. Ajax’s David Neres, who has one international cap to his name, does make the squad.
