RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - Brazilian coach Tite included Manchester City’s Fernandinho for his Copa America squad on Friday, but there was no place for Spurs forward Lucas Moura or Liverpool midfielder Fabinho.

Brazil host the Copa America between June 14 and July 7, kicking off against Bolivia before facing Venezuela and Peru.

“Fernandinho knows what we expect, he knows his responsibility,” Tite told reporters, saying he was mature enough to cope with past criticism.



“Choosing two holding midfielders between Casemiro, Fernandinho and Fabinho is hard,” Tite added.

Fernandinho was blamed in some circles for Brazil’s elimination from the 2014 and 2018 World Cups, but he has enjoyed an excellent Premier League season under Pep Guardiola and retains the confidence of the Brazil manager.

They will play friendlies against Qatar and Honduras before the Copa begins.

Neymar was banned for three games earlier this month for hitting a fan after the French Cup final.
