Barcelona’s Brazilian duo, Paulinho and Philippe Coutinho, have been included in coach Tite’s list for the World Cup. Rafinha, currently on loan to Inter Milan, did not make the cut. Neither did ex-Barcelona fullback Dani Alves, who is seriously injured. Another ex-Barcelona and current Paris Saint-Germain player, Neymar, will be included.
Unfortunately, there was no space for another ex-Barcelona fullback - Douglas Pereira - either.
