Coppa America has been postponed to 2021 due to coronavirus outbreak.
The competition was planned to take place in Argentina and Colombia between June 12 and July 12 this year.
Now the decision America made concerning the tournament, will have a huge impact on Liverpool players, including Roberto Firmino, Alisson Becker and Fabinho, with all of them expected to have been named in the Brazil squad. Firmino and Alisson have already played in Selecao’s side that won the competition last summer.
Though European Championships and Copa America have now been postponed, leagues across Europe and beyond are expected to be completed during the summer rather than be cancelled, as has been advocated by some people. However, there are also African Cup of Nations qualifiers planned to take place in June that would involve Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Naby Keita.
Liverpool are leading the Premier League table with 82 points and are on their way to win the league title.
