Endrick in the Brazilian Copa America selection, but Neymar misses

Endrick in the Brazilian Copa America selection, but Neymar misses

Teenage phenomenon Endrick was named in Brazil’s Copa America squad by coach Dorival Junior on Friday, but there was no room for Neymar, who has been sidelined since suffering a serious knee injury while on international duty in October.

Real Madrid strikers Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo have both been included, with FC Porto striker Evanilson the only new call-up for the June 20 to July 14 tournament held in the United States.

Manchester United midfielder Casemiro and experienced defender Thiago Silva, who will leave Chelsea for hometown club Fluminense at the end of the season, have been left out.

Along with 17-year-old Endrick, who leaves Palmeiras for Real Madrid in July, Dorival also selected Girona striker Savio and his club teammate Yan Couto.

The 62-year-old Dorival only took over from interim boss Fernando Diniz at the beginning of this year, but he is confident the players will quickly adapt to his coaching style.

“We have a competition that requires a lot of time together. This team will have the conditions to achieve everything we want to achieve,” said Dorival.

“I hope this reaction will be seen on the pitch. The work will be intensive for team balance and the best possible performance.”
