Fernandinho selected for Brazil Copa America squad

Fernandinho has been recalled to the Brazil squad after almost a year's absence.

Ferna, one of City’s outstanding performers in the 2018/19 season, hadn’t been selected by national team boss Tite since Brazil’s World Cup loss to Belgium.

Having won 49 caps so far, he will now hope to complete a half-century for his nation who will host the 2019 Copa America tournament, which begins on 14 June and concludes on 7 July.

Bolivia, Venezuela and Peru are in Brazil’s qualifying group.
