The South American Football Confederation (Conmebol) has released the official Team of the Tournament for this year's Copa America, and it does not include Argentina superstar Lionel Messi.

The Albiceleste's captain was snubbed despite his country finishing in third place at the tournament, with Messi's personal Copa being overshadowed by his sending-off in the third-place play-off and his comments accusing Conmebol of corruption after Argentina's semi-final defeat to Brazil.

Five Selecao stars made the selection, which was chosen by a Conmebol Technical Study Group after the hosts claimed their ninth Copa America title without a defeat in this year's showpiece.

Brazil made a clean sweep at the awards ceremony, with Dani Alves being named the Player of the Tournament, while Alisson Becker claimed the Golden Glove and Everton Soares lifted the Golden Boot.

As a consequence, it will not surprise many that all three are also in the Copa America Team of the Tournament, and are joined by their teammates Thiago Silva and Arthur.

Runners-up Peru have two players in the team, namely left-back Miguel Trauco and striker Paolo Guerrero.
