Lateral-right will already take the post in the friendly match on 5 June, against Qatar, in Brasilia.

Neymar will not be the captain of Brazil in Copa America. The player was informed by Tite after last Sunday's training at Granja Comary in Teresópolis (RJ), that the armband will be used by Daniel Alves in the continental competition. Besides, the wing-back will already occupy the position in the friendly match, next day 5, against Qatar, in Brasilia.

Coincidence or not, the loss of the armband comes after Neymar's aggression to a supporter after the decision of the French Cup at the Stade de France, where he was annoyed when provoked when climbing the stairs of the stadium for the ceremony of award of the competition, won by Rennes with a penalty shootout triumph. At the end of that match, the striker also publicly criticized colleagues from Paris Saint-Germain.
