Brazil v Costa Rica: How to watch, TV channel, kick-off time, head-to-head stats and team news

Brazil open their Copa America campaign with a winnable Group D fixture against Costa Rica at SoFi Stadium, Inglewood, California.

Brazil hosted the last two editions of the South American championship, with the Selecao emerging victorious in 2019 before Argentina beat them in the final two years later.

Their bid to regain the trophy begins with a clash with a Ticos team who were beaten 3-1 by Argentina in a friendly earlier this year.

Brazil v Costa Rica team news

Brazil team news

Dorival Junior has confirmed there will be just two changes to Brazil’s line-up from the 1-1 friendly draw with the United States 12 days ago.

Guilherme Arana of Atletico-MG comes in at left-back for Porto’s Wendell, while Real Madrid stalwart Eder Militao replaces Lucas Beraldo in the centre of defence.

That means Brazil will line up with Premier League trio Lucas Paqueta, Bruno Guimaraes and Joao Gomes in midfield, while Vinicius Junior will operate alongside fellow La Liga stars Raphinha and Rodrygo in attack.

Costa Rica team news

Alfaro is expected to recall defenders Joseph Mora and Haxzel Quiros on the flanks after deploying winger Ariel Lassiter as a wing-back in the Ticos’ recent World Cup qualifiers against St Kitts & Nevis and Grenada.

Defensive-minded holding midfielder Jefferson Brenes may be preferred over Brandon Aguilera, while the experienced Joel Campbell could get the nod up front.
