Brazilian boss Tite named his squad for the global tournament on Monday afternoon – with 13 out of the 26 players contracted to Premier League clubs.

Among those is Arsenal forward Gabriel Martinelli, with his teammate Gabriel Jesus also picked. However, there was no room for Gabriel Magalhaes.

Another notable omission from the squad is Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino, with Tottenham’s Richarlison preferred instead.

But there was no disappointment for Antony, who has been picked after impressing for United following his switch from Ajax.

Sharing a video on Twitter, the 22-year-old, who was wearing a Brazil jersey, was sitting beside his family, who all had United’s home shirt on.

And after his name was called out, they jumped up before dancing in a huddle around his living room.
