Brazilian men national team coach, Tite, has left out stars, Fabinho and Lucas Moura, from his squad for the 2019 Copa America.

The Premier League stars both miss out of the tournament due to start in June despite enjoying fine seasons with their clubs in England.

Moura was the hero in Tottenham’s Champions League semi-final second leg against Ajax, his second-half hat-trick helping Spurs overturn a three-goal deficit and progress on away goals.

Fabinho was impressive in the Liverpool side that narrowly missed out on the Premier League and reached the Champions League final.

The absence of both stars has created a storm on social media.

Despite the absence of Fabinho and Moura there is a strong Premier League representation with Ederson, Fernandinho and Gabriel Jesus of Manchester City and Liverpool duo Alisson and Roberto Firmino included.
