Casemiro Dropped from Brazil squad for Copa America




Brazil have left Manchester United midfielderCasemiro out of their squad for this summer's Copa America.

The 32-year-old has endured a poor season and had a particularly tough night in Monday's embarrassing defeat at Crystal Palace, which led to Sky Sports'Jamie Carragher believing "football has left him".
The ex-Real Madrid man, who was named Brazil's captain in March last year, is one of a number of Premier League players to miss out on the Copa America squad.

Tottenham forward Richarlison, Arsenal forward Gabriel Jesus and Wolves striker Matheus Cunha are all absent from manager Dorival Junior's first squad for a major tournament.

There are, however, nine Premier League players in the 23-man squad, including Fulham midfielder Andreas Pereira, Wolves' Joao Gomes and Arsenal attacker Gabriel Martinelli.
