Clumsy and unlucky, Brazil missed its entry into the Copa America. The Seleçao conceded a 0-0 draw against Costa Rica on Monday in Los Angeles.

Led by Vinicius, recent winner of the Champions League, Brazil multiplied the chances without managing to score. To the great despair of Neymar, an injured star is present in the stands to support his compatriots.

After a good start, the Auriverde thought they had done the hard part when PSG defender Marquinhos threw himself at the far post to push a free kick from Raphinha deflected by Rodrygo (30th) into the net. But after more than three minutes of analysis, the goal was refused by VAR for being offside by a few centimeters.

Last opportunity in the 92nd

Sieging the opposing goal, Brazil, in search of a 10th Copa America, was clumsy with 11 shots but only 3 on target. And the Seleçao also had bad luck, like this powerful strike from Lucas Paqueta which found the post in the 63rd.

Bruno Guimaraes had one last opportunity in stoppage time (92nd) but his shot went a little to the right of the opposing goal. Costa Rica, grouped in front of its goal, for its part never knew how to be dangerous (no shots).
