Copa America gives Brazil 1st chance for redemption

12 June 2015, 18:24

Sao Paulo - Brazil will play at the Copa America with more on the line than just another South American title.

It will be Brazil's first official competition since an embarrassing elimination at the World Cup, giving the five-time world champions their first chance for redemption.

Although victory in Chile this month won't fully erase the disappointment of the 7-1 semifinal loss to Germany, a good performance will move Brazil a step closer to healing from last year's humiliation.

Brazil opens the Copa America against Peru on Sunday, then plays Colombia on Wednesday and closes group play against Venezuela on June 21. The Brazilians won four of the last six South American tournaments, including two of the last three.
