PREMIER LEAGUE trio Antony, Richarlison and Bruno Guimaraes’ emotional reactions to being selected for Brazil’s World Cup squad have gone viral.
All three had their respective families with them as they watched the squad announcement live on Brazilian television.
Antony’s loved ones donned Manchester United tops and sat on the sofa as the squad was being announced.
And they leapt for joy as the 22-year-old name was announced.
The former Ajax winger shared the heartwarming clip on his Twitter and Instagram accounts.
His accompanying caption read: “For you!!! Thank you, God!!
“Thank you everyone… friends, family, mom, dad, brothers!! Love you!!! Too much emotion!!”
Spurs star Richarlison – who was surrounded by his family – couldn’t look at the TV as the announcement was made.
But he was the picture of happiness after his name was read out, leaping to his feet and embracing his loved ones.
Guimaraes and his loved ones – including his newborn son – also sat on the sofa as they waited for the Toon star’s name to be read out.
And they jumped to their feet as the midfielder’s selection for the tournament was confirmed.
Guimaraes’ celebration, however, was somewhat mooted as he was holding his little bundle of joy.
Newcastle fans were quick to comment, with one saying: “Well deserved Bruno.”
Another said: “Haway, Bruno.”
And another said: “Well deserved, Bruno.”
Antony, Richarlison and Guimaraes are three of 12 Premier League stars who will be on Brazil’s plane to Qatar.
Alisson, Ederson, Thiago Silva, Casemiro, Fabinho, Fred, Lucas Paqueta, Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli have all made the cut.
But Selecao chief Tite has opted not to pick Arsenal and Liverpool stars Garbriel Magalhaes and Roberto Firmino – the latter of whom has scored nine goals so far this season.
