Copa America 2021: Brazil’s Predicted Starting XI for the final
Goalkeeper – Ederson Moraes (Manchester City)
Brazil manager Tite has two world-class goalkeepers to choose from in Liverpool’s Alisson Becker and Manchester City’s Ederson Moraes, and the latter started Brazil’s Copa America 2021 semi-final game against Peru.
Ederson won the Premier League Golden Glove for the 2020-21 season, and after spending some time as Alisson’s backup in the national team, is now seemingly the preferred No.1 option. The 27-year old is a modern goalkeeper and is comfortable on the ball, having barely put a foot wrong in the Copa America 2021 semi-final.

The Manchester City star is regarded as one of the best goalkeepers in the world, and it will be hard for Tite to choose between him and Alisson. However, it looks likely that Ederson will don the gloves in the Copa America 2021 final.
