More about Brazil and Copa America

According to Brazilian press, players with Brazil’s national team are drafting a statement about their opinions regarding Copa America being hosted in Brazil. Some reports say the players didn’t like that CBF’s president, Caboclo, had a meeting with the squad one day before it was announced the tournament would be played in Brazil without telling them. The players found out by the press. Further, Neymar would be involved in talks with players with other South American national neams, such as Luis Suárez, to convince them not to play the Copa America. However, other less famous players are concerned about financial loss and other possible consequences if they don’t play. Apparentely, Casemiro is having an important role representing Brazil’s squad, as he is one of the captains.
