Brazil, the host of Copa America to be under pressure

Brazil is the host of this season Copa America and the first game in the group it will be playing is with Bolivia to be followed by by Peru and Venezuela.

Brazil will be preparing for the Copa America at Granja Comary training ground in Teresopolis which is located outside Rio De Janeiro till 4th of June. Brazil had last won the game in 2016 at Rio Olympics beating Germany by 5-4.

But as far as Copa is concerned it last won the game in 2007. Since then Brazil is yet to claim the glory and thus it will be under pressure for performance and the hosting will add to pressure. The newly appointed Coach Tite who took over the realms of the Brazil team in 2016 has been giving his best for the game but it will be the time that will show the results. Tite has declared his squad of 23 players among whom a few favourite names are missing such as Marcelo, Lucas Moura, Fabinho and Vinicius Jr. Neymar has been selected as the lead for handing over captain armband which has bee criticized by the few of the watchers.

Tite took over from Dunga who was sacked because of the poor performance of Brazil in 2016.
