Casemiro is among the players who have been left out of Brazil’s squad for the upcoming Copa America. The defensive midfielder and the captain of Brazil since match 2023 have had a tough 2023–24 season performance and have also been struggling with injuries during the spell.

Thiago Silva

Gabriel Jesus

Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus has also struggled with form and performance this season, as he has only scored four goals and given five assists so far in the Premier League. However, he has missed out on the Brazil squad.
