When is Brazil Copa America 2024 squad announced? Date, time for national team roster announcement as Dorival Junior names players

Brazil are to be one of the first nations to announce their squad for the 2024 Copa America.

Coach Dorival Junior will name his initial roster in May before the players reconvene for a training camp and warm-up games ahead of the start of the tournament in the United States.

This year’s finals will offer a chance for Brazil to reclaim their standing as the best side in North and South America. The Selecao endured a difficult end to 2023 as they lost three consecutive 2026 World Cup qualifiers, including at home to world champions Argentina.

However, a win over England at Wembley Stadium and a thrilling draw with Spain during the March international break gave some new impetus to the group and suggested improvements are forthcoming under Dorival Jr, who was confirmed as the new permanent head coach in January.

Although Brazil are not quite at the level of previous major tournaments — for one thing, star forward Neymar is set to miss out with injury — they will still be one of the leading contenders for glory at this summer’s tournament in the United States.

The Brazil squad will be detailed below when the announcement is made.
