Brazil Copa America squad 2024: Injured Ederson out of Dorival Junior's national team roster, Bremer called up

Brazil's Copa America squad is set, with coach Dorival Junior making some surprising choices that have fans buzzing. Premier League veterans like Richarlison and Casemiro were left off the list, but all eyes will be on 17-year-old wonderkid Endrick as he makes his international tournament debut.

A recent injury blow forced Manchester City's Ederson out of the squad, opening the door for Juventus defender Bremer to earn a call-up.

This Copa America is a chance for Brazil to reclaim their dominance in the Americas. The team closed out 2023 with a string of disappointing losses, but a win against England at Wembley and a draw against Spain in March friendlies hint at a resurgence under Dorival Jr., who took the permanent head coach job in January.

While Brazil might not be at full strength with key forward Neymar sidelined by injury, they remain a top contender to lift the trophy in the United States this summer.

Yes, but only under specific circumstances.  After the final roster is set, changes are only allowed due to injury or illness, and only up until Brazil's opening match.

  • The team will be based in Orlando, Florida.
  • European-based players will join a training camp on May 30th, with exceptions for major finals.

While they might not be at full strength with Neymar sidelined, Brazil remains a contender with a talented, youthful squad.
