Rafinha and Dani Alves to represent Brazil in Copa Amèrica

Brazil have called up FC Barcelona duo Dani Alves and Rafinha for this summer's Copa América which is set to take place in the United States between 3 and 26 June

Neymar Jr is not included on the list of 23 players in Dunga’s squad after FC Barcelona reached an agreement with the Brazilian Football Confederation that the player will only compete in the Olympic Games. In this way, the Barça forward can have a rest between the end of the domestic season and the start of the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

Rafinha has the chance to represent his country after making his senior debut back in September last year before suffering a serious injury.

Dani Alves has been a mainstay in the Brazil squad throughout the years and his experience will be vital as Brazil look to capture the trophy.

Other familiar faces in the squad from La Liga include Filipe Luis (Atlético Madrid), Casemiro (Real Madrid) and Diego Alves (Valencia).
