  • Man City quartet named in Brazil World Cup squad

Rio de Janeiro - Striker Neymar, who hasn't played a game since breaking his foot in February, was named Monday as the star of the Brazilian national team which will seek a record sixth World Cup out in Russian Federation.

The Brazilian federation released a statement confirming Alves' absence from the national team Friday.

The World Cup, where Brazil are aiming for a sixth title, starts in Russian Federation on June 14. "Footballers hate missing games but I know first-hand that missing #WorldCup games is the worst feeling". The veteran centre back has been a frequent name in France's squad and will be sorely missed by Les Bleus.

Alves faces a long term lay off with damage to his anterior cruciate ligament in his knee.

Dani Alves ended his letter on an emotional note, with a promise. I don't want anybody to feel sorry for me.

Alves, a former Barcelona and Juventus star, has won 38 trophies in his career - a new record secured by PSG's French Cup triumph on Tuesday.

Worryingly for Tite, there is no outstanding natural replacement for Alves in the right-back slot.

Lasmar said in Paris the date of the operation will be decided by PSG and Alves, who played for Brazil in the last two World Cups and has 107 appearances for the team since his 2006 debut.

Manchester City's Danilo has been criticised for his displays this season.

Neymar, who was been out with an injured foot since February 25, is in the squad and expected to be fit by early June.

"The most important thing is that he's happy and well looked after".

The players are scheduled to arrive at the Granja Comary in Teresopolis on May 21, where they will work for a week before departing for London on May 27.
