The absences from Brazil’s list for the Copa América

Although the loss of the crack of Al Hilal Arab was a more than latent possibility, due to the injury he suffered in October of last year with the rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament of the left knee and meniscus, there was minimal hope for him to reach the continental competition. However, the “Verdeamarela” will have to face the competition without its biggest star.


The rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee and meniscus will leave Neymar without the Copa América.


Other notable absences are those of the midfielder Casemirohis teammate at Manchester United Anthonyand the forwards Gabriel Jesus (Arsenal) and Richarlison (Tottenham).

In this regard, Dorival explained: “Richarlison had a calf injurywhich was not made official by the club, but we contacted the athlete and he informed us. Casemiro deserves the recognition of all of us. I spoke to him in Manchester three months ago and talked about his moment and that of his team. Doesn’t mean he’s ruled out. We will contact him to explain what may happen in the future. He deserves consideration, affection, respect and we believe in an athlete of this level.” Regarding Gabriel Jesús and Antony he did not comment.

However, the teams have time to present the roster until June 12, and there are even rumors that the call would be extended from 23 to 26 surnames in the coming days, although that issue has not yet been officially discussed.

“A purely technical decision with all the names. I say again that No matter the age, the club, any other situation other than the moment of each athlete and their condition. The evaluation process is difficult. Not being in that moment means nothing. We will have two initial friendlies, if we need to change, due to the technical or medical area, we will do it for the Copa América,” the coach clarified.

One of the surprises is Evanilson24-year-old forward Porto Portuguese. Regarding his call, the coach clarified: “He is a player who has been attracting attention. He has a clear understanding of the role he plays. He complements the front of the area and also infiltrates the moments when we attack from the sides. He is a very interesting player. If he does what he does at the club it will be a pleasant surprise. We were surprised in our evaluations. He was already a name that was talked about in the first call-up and now, due to an injury this morning with Richarlison, he becomes a player we can count on.”
