Brazil’s Copa America Squad Bolstered with New Addition after Ederson’s Injury

Brazil’s coach, Dorival Junior, made changes to the Copa America squad after Ederson’s injury by adding three extra players to the team.

CONMEBOL, the South American governing body, allowed teams to expand their squad to 26 players from the original 23 for the tournament.

Dorival Junior brought in Bremer from Juventus, Ederson from Atalanta, and Pepe from Porto to fill in the gaps left by Ederson’s absence.

Due to an eye injury suffered in a collision with Cristian Romero, Ederson will not be able to participate, and Rafael from Sao Paolo will take his place.

The original squad did not include Casemiro, Richarlison, or Gabriel Jesus, but it did feature 17-year-old sensation Endrick.

Brazil, a nine-time Copa America champion, will begin their campaign against Costa Rica in Group D on June 24th.
