Juventus full-back Alex Sandro has been left out of the Brazil squad for this summer’s World Cup.
The Selecao named their 23-man squad this evening, and there is plenty of Serie A representation.
Roma goalkeeper Alisson, Inter centre-back and Juventus winger Douglas Costa have all been included in Tite’s squad.
However, Douglas Costa’s Bianconeri teammate Alex Sandro won’t be travelling to Russia, unless he’s called-up to replace an injured player before the tournament starts.
The world’s most expensive player Neymar has also been included, despite missing the end of Paris Saint-Germain’s season with a broken metatarsal.

Goalkeepers: Alisson [Roma], Ederson [Manchester City], Cassio [Corinthians]
Defenders: Fagner [Corinthians], Danilo [Man. City], Marcelo [Real Madrid], Filipe Luis [Atletico Madrid], Miranda [Inter], Thiago Silva [Psg], Marquinhos [Psg], Geromel [Gremio]
