Brazil national team coach, Tite, has released his squad list for next month's Copa America and some high-profile names have been left out of the tournament.

PSG forward, Neymar Jnr., leads the charge as the South Americans try to win a tournament they last won in 2007.

Liverpool's Alisson Becker and Roberto Firmino are also listed in the team, while Ajax young star, David Neres, will play his first tournament for his country.

Real Madrid duo, Marcelo and Vinicius Junior, miss out even though the latter has had a breakthrough season with the Spanish club.
