After a story emerged from the Brazilian media about a Cayman Islands-based marketing company influencing team selection of the national side, the federation denied the allegations. They acknowledged however the existence of the contract that was discussed in the report, but emphasized that the actual head coach of the national team picks the best players before every game Brazil is involved in.

After the national team’s coach, Dunga has called up Liverpool star playmaker Philippe Coutinho to the squad preparing for the Copa America, the fans of Brazil and the Reds are curiously waiting to see the midfield trickster playing alongside Neymar. Coutinho struggled when on national duty so far, but now he has to take his game to a new level for club and country.

ESPNFC: Brazil says squad selection done solely by coach, not marketing partners

The CBF, the Brazilian Football Confederation denies that a marketing company, that buys the commercial rights of every friendly game of the Brazilian national football team for 1 million dollars, would also name the line-up of the Selecao. The CBF reacted to alleged details of its contract with a Cayman Island-based firm published by a Brazilian newspaper.
According to the report, there would be a fifty percent cut from the fee the company usually pays to CBF per matches if players like Neymar are left out of the team. However, CBF stated that “the criteria for selecting the squad for the matches of the Brazilian team are, and always will be, with the coach”.

They did not deny the existence of such agreement, saying “The contract between the CBF and ISE is not a secret and large parts of it have been published before”. CBF’s statement also emphasizes that coaches always select the best players available naturally, not because of the influence of a marketing company.
The contract between CBF and International Sports Events on behalf of the federation was agreed by former president Ricardo Teixeira, who stepped down from his position in 2012. He quit after he was accused with corruption together with former president of the FIFA, Joao Havelange, as many who follow sports scores remember. Copa America Important For Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho

Philippe Coutinho will have a shot to prove his skills to South America and the world at international level this summer, wearing the special yellow shirt of Brazil. Gambling news reported earlier this month that Brazil head coach Dunga left out Chelsea’s Oscar from the squad due to injury, and picked Coutinho, that came as a surprise for many.
Dunga expressed that he expects the little magician to entertain Brazilian supporters like he does with the people of Liverpool. He said, “There is a lot of talk about Coutinho here in England because of what he is doing with Liverpool. I would like to see the Brazilian fans clamouring for him too.”

When he got the opportunity before, the playmaker failed to deliver for Brazil so far. However, with a bunch of strong performances under his belt and with a considerable growth in confidence, Coutinho will have a chance to develop his game further playing alongside stars like Barcelona’s Neymar and Orlando City’s Kaka.
Coutinho was named to the PFA Team of the Year and was arguably Liverpool’s most important player in this year’s campaign. After the departure of Steven Gerrard and possibly of Raheem Sterling, Coutinho’s role will be increasingly important for the Reds. His new experiences with the national team in Chile might help him to offer even more for Liverpool.
