BRAZIL ADDS THREE PLAYERS TO COMPLETE ROSTER

Juventus defender Bremer, Porto forward Pepe, and Atalanta midfielder Ederson were added to the roster.

The Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) announced the lineup on Wednesday.

Coach Dorival Junior initially named 23 players to the team on Sunday.

The three also replaced injured Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson.

Ederson was part of the original 23 players named by Dorival.

With Ederson gone, Rafael was brought in to take over his slot.

Rafael will join Alisson and Bento as the team’s goalkeepers.

PEREIRA, GUIMARES, LUIZ HEADLINE BRAZIL’S MIDFIELD LINE

Andreas Pereira, Bruno Guimaraes, and Douglas Luiz headline Dorival’s impressive midfield line.

Joao Gomez, Lucas Paqueta, and Ederson were also on the list.

Among the notable absences include Neymar, midfielder Casemiro, and forwards Richarlison and Gabriel Jesus.

Danilo, Yan Couto, Guilherme Arana, and Wendell made the list as defenders.

They were joined by Beraldo, Eder Militao, Gabriel Magalhaes, Marquinhos, and Bremer.

BRAZIL’S FINAL 23 TO BE DONE FAIRLY, DORIVAL ASSURES

Accordingly, Dorival assured fans and players that picking the final 23 would be done fairly.

“All players, regardless of when they were called up, arrive on equal terms to compete and fight for a place in the starting team,” the coach said in a video released by the CBF.

Afterward, 7-year-old prodigy Endrick was named to Brazil’s potent forward lineup with Neymar and Casemiro out.

On the other hand, Evanilson, Gabriel Martinelli, and Rafinha join Endrick among the forwards.

Furthermore, they were joined by Rodrygo, Savinho, Vinicius Junior, and Pepe.

Brazil will open its Copa America 2024 campaign against Costa Rica on June 24.
