Aston Villa: Fans react to Douglas Luiz call up -Aston Villa

Aston Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz was called up by Brazil on Tuesday, and a number of Villa supporters have been reacting to the news on the 23-year-old on social media.

Luiz was initially left out of the squad for World Cup qualifiers against Venezuela, Colombia and Uruguay, with eight Premier League players included.

However, Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro was forced to withdraw due to a wisdom tooth infection, which has led to Luiz replacing him in Tite’s squad for the three fixtures.

Reliable Villa reporter Ashley Preece has now suggested that Luiz, who has been a regular this season, is facing a race against time to be available for Dean Smith in the first fixture back after the international break against Wolves at Villa Park.

Villa fans! Do you remember which club James Milner left AVFC for?

Villa fans react

Preece shared the news regarding Luiz on Twitter, along with Villa posting the update on their official account. This is what these fans had to say in reply, with one labelling it as ‘ridiculous’.

“I think we’re missing an update on which international are missing Wolves and which aren’t!!! It’s getting a bit ridiculous all of this and the PL need to act accordingly. Fixture moves or pressure on FIFA over their scheduling.”
