Neymar has been replaced as Brazil captain for next month’s Copa America by his Paris St Germain team-mate Dani Alves.

Brazil’s football confederation, CBF, said in a statement Monday that the 36-year-old defender, also a teammate of Neymar’s with Paris Saint-Germain — will start wearing the armband in the friendly against Qatar on June 5 in Brasilia.

The CBF said Brazil coach Tite informed Neymar of his decision on Saturday, the day the PSG striker arrived at the national team’s training ground outside Rio de Janeiro.
