These players could prove to be a handful for their nation’s Copa America triumph.

As Brazil head into the Copa America 2024, the soccer powerhouse finds itself at a crossroads. After a disappointing World Cup exit and a rocky start to 2026 World Cup qualifying, the Seleção are eager to reassert their dominance on the continental stage.

With long-time talisman Neymar sidelined due to injury, Brazil will look to a new generation of talent to lead the charge. This tournament presents an opportunity for emerging stars to step into the spotlight and carry the weight of their nation’s expectations.

As the five-time World Cup champions aim to reclaim South American supremacy, here are three key players who could shape Brazil’s fortunes in the upcoming Copa America.

3. Rodrygo

At just 23, Rodrygo has already made a significant impact for both Real Madrid and Brazil. Known for his versatility across the front line, Rodrygo combines clever movement with clinical finishing. His experience in high-pressure situations, including key Champions League performances, makes him a valuable asset.

Rodrygo’s ability to play multiple attacking positions gives Brazil’s coach tactical flexibility. Whether deployed as a winger or central forward, he has the skills to unlock defences and score crucial goals. This tournament could see Rodrygo further establish himself as a cornerstone of Brazil’s attack for years to come.

2. Vinícius Júnior

At 23, Vinícius Júnior has become the focal point of Brazil’s attack. The Real Madrid forward brings blistering pace and skill to the left wing. Despite his success at club level, where he’s notched three straight 20-goal seasons, Vinícius has yet to fully replicate that form for Brazil. With only three goals in 30 national team appearances, he’ll be eager to improve his scoring record.

Vinícius’s ability to beat defenders one-on-one and create chances will be crucial for Brazil’s attack. His partnership with club teammate Rodrygo could prove decisive in breaking down stubborn defences. This Copa America offers Vinícius the perfect stage to cement his status as Brazil’s new offensive leader.

1. Endrick

While only 17, Endrick has generated massive excitement in Brazilian soccer. The Palmeiras striker, set to join Real Madrid when he turns 18, has already shown his potential on the international stage. His recent goals against England and Spain in friendlies hint at a bright future.

Endrick’s inclusion in the Copa America squad is a bold move, but his raw talent and goal-scoring instincts could provide Brazil with a wild card option. Even in limited minutes, Endrick has the ability to change games with his speed and finishing. This tournament could be the launching pad for one of soccer’s most promising young talents.
