Brazil have announced their squad for their final two FIFA World Cup qualifiers later this month but a few big names were left out, including one star who is not vaccinated.

Click through the gallery above to see the players left out of the latest Brazil squad.

The five-time World champions have already qualified for the World Cup but they end their qualifying campaign against Ecuador and Paraguay at the end of the month.

Veteran full-back Dani Alves has earned a re-call along with Real Madrid attacking Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo, who both missed out in the last international break.

Star forward Neymar misses out as he continues to recovery from injury, but the coach confirmed Atletico Madrid star Renan Lodi was left out because he is not full vaccinated.

"Renan Lodi was excluded from the possibility of being called up due to his non-vaccination,' Tite told reporters on Thursday. 'He missed the chance to compete (for a place)," Tite said, as per Daily Mail.

Full squad:

Goalkeepers: Alisson (Liverpool), Ederson (Manchester City), Weverton (Palmeiras)

Defenders: Dani Alves (Barcelona), Emerson Royal (Tottenham), Alex Sandro (Juventus), Alex Telles (Manchester United), Eder Militao (Real Madrid), Gabriel Magalhaes (Arsenal), Marquinhos (PSG), Thiago Silva (Chelsea)

Midfielders: Bruno Guimaraes (Lyon), Casemiro (Real Madrid), Fabinho (Liverpool), Fred (Manchester United), Gerson (Olympique de Marseille), Everton Ribeiro (Flamengo), Lucas Paqueta (Lyon), Philippe Coutinho (Aston Villa)

Forwards: Antony (Ajax), Vinicius Junior (Real Madrid), Rodrygo (Real Madrid), Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City), Matheus Cunha (Atletico de Madrid), Raphinha (Leeds), Gabriel Barbosa (Flamengo)
