Barcelona duo Arthur and Philippe Coutinho have both been called up to the Brazil squad by manager Tite for this summer’s Copa America.

The two players are part of a 23-man squad for the summer tournament that takes place in Brazil and kicks off on June 14.

Brazil will play Bolivia, Venezuela and Peru in Group A and will be expected to come out on top and progress to the knockout stages.

Indeed Tite’s side will be favourites to claim glory on home soil and lift the trophy for the ninth time.
