The tournament, which was scheduled to take place last year, was postponed due to the Corona virus pandemic.
Brazil was granted the right to host the tournament as part of its bid to preserve the title, even though it is one of the countries most affected by the pandemic.
Before beating Ecuador 2-0 on Friday evening (Saturday morning GMT), the Brazilian coach, Tite, did not guarantee his team’s participation in the tournament hosted by the country, and promised to shed light on the situation after the team’s match against Paraguay ended on Tuesday.
After the Brazilian team maintained the full mark in the qualifiers by achieving its fifth victory, Casemiro was asked about the team’s declared position.
“We can’t talk about the Copa America even if everyone knows what we think, but we can’t talk about it, everyone knows we’re thinking,” Casemiro told Globo after the match.
“Obviously we are thinking about the Copa America, but now we have to respect a certain hierarchy, obviously we want to express ourselves about it, but unfortunately we can’t,” he added.
“We are not going to talk about the Copa America,” Casemiro added. “Tite has already said what we think.”
The Brazilian team is preparing to face Paraguay before playing the opening match of the Copa America against Venezuela.
“As captain of the national team we have our position, we want to talk, but this is not the right moment,” Casemiro stressed.
“I’m not the only one, not just the players who are active in Europe (against hosting the tournament), all of us, when someone talks or Tite or the coaching staff everyone does, we must be united,” he said.
This is the first time since 1970 that the Brazilian team has won the opening five matches in the World Cup qualifiers.
The team plays in Group B in the Copa America with Colombia, Peru, Ecuador and Venezuela.
