It’s game 2 of the Copa America, as Brazil takes on Ecuador at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. on June 4 at 10pm. It may be a late game if you’re on the East Coast, but you certainly won’t want to miss this one as the Samba Boys aim to win their 9th Copa America of all time. Can they get off to a winning start?

Sadly for Brazil, they’ve gone against picking their more experienced players and opted for a more youthful approach. So best player Neymar isn’t part of the squad, even though he’s been hanging out in the US with Justin Bieber, which is a real shame for Brazil and his American fans that wanted to see him play in the flesh!

For that reason, Brazil’s chances of lifting the Copa have been rated as fairly slim in comparison to arch-rivals Argentina or last year’s victors, Chile. But they’ve still got a squad capable of winning any game, so we shouldn’t hate on them just yet.
Ecuador is an ever-improving team, with tons of Premier League experience amongst their players, which will put them in good stead for the Copa. With Antonio Valencia of Manchester United fame and Jefferson Montero from Swansea City, they have a confident pool of players.
With this being an under-strength Brazil team, it could be that they struggle to get the win they need in their opening game. They may just labor to a tie in this one.
