Neymar wants to play in Brazil's Copa America and Olympics campaigns in summer

ESPN FC's Craig Burley doesn't believe Neymar and Liverpool are a good fit whatsoever.

Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar has expressed his interest in playing for Brazil at this summer's Copa America and the Olympic Games -- if the South Americans qualify.

Like Kylian Mbappe with France, who have already booked their place in the Tokyo Games, Neymar could be selected as one of the over-23 players -- meaning both could feature at two summer tournaments, with the French also in Euro 2020 action.

Neymar, soon 28, was asked about the possibility after PSG's high-octane, 3-3 home...

Neymar: Real Madrid, Brazil need patience with Rodrygo, Vinicius Junior

Julien Laurens is given the tough task of choosing whether Real Madrid or Barcelona should be considered La Liga favourites.
Alejandro Moreno says D.C. United need to think about the big picture if they're going to pursue Luka Modric.

Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar has tipped compatriots Rodrygo and Vinicius Junior to make successes of themselves with Real Madrid.

Speaking to Globo Esporte, the Brazil international expressed his hope that expectations for the young duo will be tempered, and that they will be shown patience at Santiago Bernabeu.

Rodrygo boasts six goals and two assists from 14 La Liga and Champions League appearances, while Vinicius has two goals and one assist from 16 league and European outings.

Chapecoense plane crash survivor Neto retires from football

After Chape lost 19 of their players in the plane crash, the only thing they could do is rebuild -- and remember. At the 71st minute of every home game, the fans pause to chant the team song.

One of the six survivors of the air crash that killed almost all of the Brazilian football team Chapecoense in 2016 announced his playing retirement on Friday.

Neto, a 34-year-old defender, spent two years rehabilitating after the crash that killed 71 people in Colombia. He returned to training in March. But in an interview he said his pain was too intense to play again.

"I am in agreement with doctors and the club. I wanted a farewell match, but I chose not to," Neto told TV Globo.

"My body...

Australia to face Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay in 2020 Copa America

Julien Laurens says Lionel Messi separated himself from other Ballon d'Or finalists by carrying Barcelona.
Craig Burley believes Lionel Messi is single-handedly covering up deficiencies at Barcelona.

The Socceroos will tackle global superstar Lionel Messi and Argentina at next year's Copa America after Australia were drawn alongside the co-hosts.

Graham Arnold's men were drawn in Group A for the South American continental championship, which starts on June 12.

That means Australia will play their five group stages matches in Argentina against the two-time World Cup champions, Uruguay, Chile, Bolivia and Paraguay.

The Socceroos' opening match will be against 15-time Copa America champions Uruguay...

FIFA bans former Brazil federation chief Ricardo Teixeira for life for bribes

Ricardo Teixeira was the president of the Brazil Football Confederation from 1989-2012.

FIFA has banned former Brazilian Football Confederation president Ricardo Teixeira for life for receiving millions of dollars in bribes.

FIFA says Teixeira has been found guilty of taking bribes linked to commercial contracts for South American competitions from 2006-12. He was fined 1 million Swiss francs ($1m), but it is unclear how FIFA can enforce payment.

The judgment was announced four years after Teixeira was indicted by U.S. federal authorities on racketeering, wire fraud and money laundering...
