Brazil squad agrees to play in Copa America
Sao Paulo: Brazil’s national soccer squad has agreed to play in the Copa America despite expressing concerns over the late decision to stage the continental tournament in their home country. Players used social media to publish a message saying they are “unsatisfied” with South American soccer’s governing body, CONMEBOL, which decided to move the tournament to Brazil after Colombia and Argentina were dropped as co-hosts. They said they don’t want to make the organisation of Copa America a political debate, though. AP/PTI
