Brazil players blast CONMEBOL but vow they will play in Copa America

 

The Selecao have hit out at South America's main football governing body over their handling of the summer tournament that will be hosted in Brazil

The Brazil squad have criticised CONMEBOL for switching the Copa America location, but have reluctantly accepted the hosting responsibilities that have been thrust upon them.

Argentina and Colombia were originally due to co-host the 2021 Copa America, but the latter was removed on May 20 amid widespread political protests.

CONMEBOL subsequently announced that Argentina would stage the tournament alone before they were hit with a surge of Covid-19 cases, and Brazil were then swiftly named the new hosts.
