Olympics: Brazil’s June Training Camp Roster

Earlier today, Jorge Barcellos announced Brazil’s June training camp roster (CBF.com.br). From the 25 players called into the camp, 18 will make the official Olympic roster, while up to 4 will be included as alternates. The official roster should be announced at the end of June.

During the camp, which runs from June 4th to the 29th, Brazil will play Colombia in two friendlies, according to Colombia’s FA (see this post), but the full details of those matches are not yet known.

Brazil was drawn into Group E, along with host Great Britain, New Zealand, and Cameroon.

CAMP ROSTER

The camp roster contains no real surprises as every player was in the preliminary roster announced earlier and all the veterans on that list were included in this camp. The youngest player on the roster is U-20 forward Thaís Guedes who will likely make the Olympic roster. None of the other U-20 players on that preliminary roster were called into camp.

In Brazil’s news item, the players were only listed alphabetically, but in the accompanying video, Barcellos announced the players by position. The order of the players below is how Barcellos read off the names. (Except that the fullbacks were announced before the centerbacks.)

Note: Positions listed in that post are based on a 3-4-3 (or 3-4-1-2, depending on one’s preference), and not a 4-4-2 formation, which Barcellos switched to, earlier this year.
