Raphinha called up to Brazil’s Copa America squad, Vitor Roque misses out

Barcelona forward Raphinha has been called into the Brazil squad for this summer’s Copa America but, unsurprisingly, there’s no room for club team-mate Vitor Roque.

Head coach Dorival Junior has named his provisional squad for the summer tournament and it looks a little something like this.

Raphinha has had an injury-interrupted campaign with Barcelona but has still managed eight goals and 11 assists in all competitions for Xavi’s side.

There has been speculation he could be sold in the summer, although he has made it clear he’s happy at the club and doesn’t want to leave.

The situation is vastly different for Vitor Roque. The youngster was brought in during the January window but has barely played.

Xavi has since admitted he could go out on loan with his comments bringing a swift response from his agent who claimed the forward may look for a permanent transfer this summer.
