Barcelona midfielders Arthur and Arturo Vidal have both been named in the Copa America team of the tournament.

The two players both put in some strong showings for their national teams, with Arthur impressing and helping hosts Brazil lift the trophy after victory over Peru in the final.

Vidal was his usual feisty self, featuring in all of Chile’s games in their run to the semi-finals and scoring in the third-place play-off defeat to Argentina.

As expected winners Brazil have the most players in the line-up with goalkeeper Alisson, Dani Alves, Thiago Silva and Everton joining Arthur in the XI.

Uruguay defender José Giménez, Peru duo Miguel Trauco and Paolo Guerrero, Argentina’s Leandro Paredes and Colombia’s James Rodriguez complete the line-up.
