Alisha Lehmann and Douglas Luiz continued to flaunt their relationship on social media amid rumours they could both quit Aston Villa for Juventus this summer.

Alisha Lehmann and Douglas Luiz’s relationship continues to grow stronger on and off the pitch.

The couple continued their public display of love at the Copa America, despite Luiz being benched for Brazil's opening match against Costa Rica on June 25.

Lehmann, widely considered as the 'world’s sexiest female footballer' was present at the SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, supporting her Brazilian boyfriend from the stands.

The Swiss footballer, who spent the previous week enjoying the LA weather and sights, attended the match with friends, hoping to see Luiz in action.

However, Brazil were forced to a disappointing draw on Monday night, leaving much to be desired, with even Neymar, Brazil’s all-time leading goalscorer, expressing disappointment from the stands.
