Marquinhos to miss U20 Championship

Roma defender Marquinhos will not play in the South American Under-20 Championship next year.

The Giallorossi had worried that the 18-year-old would be leaving for the youth tournament between January 3 and possibly February 3.

But reports from Calcio News today have claimed that Zdenek Zeman's side have come to an agreement with Brazil which means the former Corinthians man will not travel to Argentina.

The young centre-back has been one of the revelations of the season in Italy, playing 12 League games so far.
