Dani Alves’ long-term injury, sustained in the French Cup final for PSG, opened the door for Danilo who has won just one cap for Brazil in the last two years.
Gabriel Jesus has won 15 caps to date and is expected to resume his partnership with Neymar at this summer’s tournament.
Ederson has won just one cap to date for his country, though it’s hard to believe he won’t win many more in years to come.
Fernandinho is the most experienced of the City four, winning 41 caps so far and played in the 2014 World Cup.
