Neymar & Other Brazil Players Angry The Country Will Host Copa America 2021

Neymar & Other Brazil Players Angry

Brazil’s players have criticized the decision to hold the Copa America in their country.

South American Football Confederation Conmebol moved the tournament from Argentina on 1 June.

Co-hosts Colombia had already been dropped amid civil unrest there.

“For different reasons, be they humanitarian or professional, we are not satisfied with the way the Copa America has been handled by Conmebol,” the players said.

Brazilian media had reported the team was unhappy at not being consulted about the decision. But the players’ statement said they had never considered boycotting the tournament.

The statement, posted on the players’ personal social media accounts, appeared soon after the team beat Paraguay 2-0 in a World Cup qualifier in Asuncion – the first time they had won in the country since 1985.

“All the recent facts make us believe it was an inadequate process,” the statement said.

Brazil has recorded more than 475,000 deaths attributed to coronavirus, the second-highest number in the world after the US.
