Groups of Manchester City fans debate why Ederson is deemed inferior to Alisson for Brazil

Most would assume that a Premier League champion would be a shoe-in for their respective national team, but that is not the case for Ederson and Brazil.

The Manchester City goalkeeper played a pivotal role in Pep Guardiola’s side storming to victory in England’s top flight.

The 24-year-old established himself as one of the top keepers of the campaign after just one season at the North-West outfit.

However, during the World Cup in Russia, the honour of the number one spot has gone to Roma’s Alisson, who has been linked to Liverpool, Real Madrid and Chelsea in this transfer window.

Ederson is part of Tite’s Brazil squad, but he is yet to make an appearance, with Alisson having started all four of the nation’s matches so far in the competition.

In fact, the City keeper has earned just one international cap, and that was when he made his debut in October 11, 2017.

On Reddit, City fans have been discussing the qualities of both of Brazil’s goalkeepers, and interestingly, not all of them have been biased.
