Explanation on Neymar’s absence from Copa America 2024 in USA: Whereabouts of Brazil star questioned

Brazil’s Copa America 2024 Squad and Neymar’s Absence – The Inside Story

Title: Neymar Absent from Brazil’s 2024 Copa America Squad Due to Injury

In a much-anticipated showdown at the 2024 Copa America, Brazil is set to take the field seeking redemption for their loss in the 2021 final. Despite being one of the favorites for the tournament, the Selecao will be missing their star player Neymar Jr, who is sidelined due to injury.

Neymar, who is currently recovering from knee surgery after sustaining an injury during a World Cup qualifying match, will be a notable absence from Brazil’s squad. The Al Hilal forward’s rehabilitation is expected to last until at least August, ruling him out of the Copa America competition.

This is not the first time Neymar has missed a Copa America tournament. In the past, Barcelona requested his omission from the 2016 Copa America Centenario, and he missed the 2019 edition due to injury. Despite his absence, Brazil will rely on a talented squad featuring players like Vinicius Junior, who is in contention for the 2024 Ballon d’Or.

The Selecao’s group stage schedule at the Copa America includes matches against Costa Rica, Paraguay, and Colombia. With Neymar watching from the sidelines, Brazil will look to their remaining squad members to make a strong showing at the tournament.
