Internet Desk: The Brazilian Football Confederation took a dig at club Flamengo for not releasing young sensation Vinicus Junior for the forthcoming FIFA U17 World Cup in India, which will start from October 6.

In a letter, the parent body of Brazilian football said that Flamengo have no ‘common sence’. Though according to them this is not a fault of Junior as he has a contract with the club.

"We called Sao Paulo for Brenner, Vasco for Paulinho and Flamengo for Vinicius. Sao Paulo and Vasco let their players come without any problems, but Flamengo had doubts," said Edu Gaspar

"Vinicius Junior has nothing to do with this, he's a good guy. He was very receptive from the beginning and was excited to be called up.I was counting on them (Flamengo) to have common sense. I do not agree and we are all deeply disappointed with the club's decision," he added.

Earlier, Flamengo manager Reinaldo Rueda revealed the club's reasoning to keep Vinicius at home.

"It was a situation analysed by the board, with the coaches and with Vinicius," he said. "We want the best for him. He's a conscientious, smart player, important for the national team.

"But he has not taken part in the weeks of preparation. He knows that he can come and help, but also wants to respect that.

"He knows that the national team has good players and he will stay with us. We hope the national team has success in the World Cup."

The Brazilian forward has already signed a contract with Spanish football giant and current Champions League holders Real Madrid. Earlier, he also helped the U17 Brazilian national side to win the South American Championship where he scored seven goals for the side and was also adjudged as the player of the tournament for his brilliant performance.
