According to Garone’s Column in odia.ig.com.br, “the Brazilian teams have become a burden for clubs. The CBF is making selection increasingly unfriendly,” Garone said.

“Flamengo without Gabigol and Rodrigo Caio. Sao Paulo without Daniel Alves. Guild without Everton and Matheus Henrique. Palm Trees without Weverton. Athletic Paranaense without Santos.

“It (the list) has emptied a championship that should be a priority for the Brazilian Football Confederation, but in practice receives less attention than friendlies against countries that did not even pass the group stage at the last World Cup.”
