Unvaccinated star Lodi dropped from Brazil squad

It’s becoming a harsh world for anti-vaxxers. Brazil has now left out a player who has not been fully vaccinated.

Atletico Madrid’s Renan Lodi has been an ever-present in the Brazil team but he will now miss the final two qualifying games against Ecuador and Paraguay.

"Renan Lodi was excluded from the possibility of being called up due to his non-vaccination,” Tite told reporters on Thursday, as quoted by the Daily Mail.

"He missed the chance to compete (for a place).

"I personally believe that vaccination is a social responsibility, it's both mine and the person's alongside me,” Tite said.
