Copa America 2021 – Brazil vs Venezuela LIVE: The federation has confirmed that they are flying players in from their domestic league, the Venezuelan Primera Division, to face the Selecao in the Copa America opener. COVID-19 pandemic has for long affected this showpiece event in Southern America. Argentina and Colombia were originally due to co-host the 2021 Copa America, but the latter was then removed on May 20 amid widespread political protests and Argentina withdrew due to a surge in COVID-19 cases. Amid this, CONMEBOL unexpectedly selected Brazil to stage the summer tournament to which Selecao players have shown their strong discomfort.
