SAO PAULO -- The Brazilian football confederation will summon former national team coaches to help find ways of improving football in the country after a series of disappointing results.
The confederation's announcement that it will form a counsel of former coaches comes less than a week after Brazil was eliminated in the quarterfinals of the Copa America for the second consecutive time. It's also less than a year since Brazil's worst loss ever, a 7-1 defeat to Germany in the semifinals of the World...
Barcelona star Neymar said play at Copa America was not in any way affected by a pending Barcelona case in Spain for tax evasion related to his transfer from Santos in 2013.
Neymar was dealt a four-match Copa America ban after he received yellow cards in two straight matches and was sent off in Brazil's 1-0 loss to Colombia. The ban ended his participation in the tournament.
