Arsenal star reacts after missing Brazil’s 26-man World Cup squad
Arsenal star reacts to missing out on World Cup after Brazil snub.
Among those called-up were Arsenal forwards Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli who made the cut ahead of Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino.
But it was not to be for fellow Gunner Gabriel who was left out despite his impressive performances this season that have propelled Arsenal to the top of the Premier League.
- Brazil unveil the official 26-men World Cup squad.
- Gabriel throws shade at Aubameyang after Chelsea’s loss to Arsenal
- Zinchenko discloses Arsenal’s “dream” and calls for a mental shift in the Premier League title race.
Competition for a place in Brazil’s squad is extremely tough given the number of world-class players available to Tite, with centre-back Gabriel losing out to Chelsea’s Thiago Silva, PSG’s Marquinhos, Real Madrid’s Eder Militao and Juventus’ Bremer.
While some may have found his exclusion disappointing, it was undoubtedly improbable considering his lack of international football experience and the fact that the 24-year-old has yet to play for the senior Brazil team.
While Gabriel is yet to directly comment on the matter, he did respond to a fan on his Instagram story shortly after the squad announcement.
In addition, He has also liked a number of his teammates’ social media posts celebrating their own call-up, including that of Jesus who posted a video montage of his highlights along with the captain ‘Inexplicable’.
