Twenty-two players are representing their countries at this summer's tournament in Brazil

A collection of stars from the Premier League will be in action for their international teams this summer, with 22 gracing the 2019 Copa America.

Players from 12 clubs involved in last season's PL campaign have been called up to represent their countries at the tournament, as well as Arsenal's Colombian goalkeeper David Ospina, who was on loan at Napoli in 2018/19.

Salomon Rondon was on loan at Newcastle United from West Bromwich Albion last season and features in the Venezuela squad.

Manchester City are the most-represented club, with striker Sergio Aguero among their five players competing in the tournament.

Chelsea midfielder Willian was a late addition for Brazil, who are the nation to have called up the most players from the Premier League, with seven. He was brought in to replace the injured Neymar.

The South American competition, which is being held in Brazil and also features Japan and Qatar, kicks off on 14 June and finishes on 7 July.

The top two sides from each group, plus the two best nations finishing third, qualify for the last eight.
