Brazil arrive in Argentina for Copa America

Mano Menezes and his players arrived in Buenos Aires on Tuesday evening before setting off for the team hotel in Los Cardales

The Brazil national squad touched down in Argentina on Tuesday night ahead of their Copa America opener against Venezuela on July 3.

Without Elano, Ganso and Neymar, who will represent Santos in the second-leg of the Copa Libertadores final on Wednesday evening before travelling to join Mano Menezes' party the following morning, the group took a flight from Rio de Janeiro to Buenos Aires.

From there the Brazilian unit immediately boarded a coach to make the 60km journey to the team hotel in Los Cardales. Brazil coach Menezes has scheduled a light training session for Wednesday morning.

The five-time world champions will complete their Group B campaign with games against Paraguay on July 9 and Ecuador four days later.

Brazil have won four of the last five editions of the Copa America, though only eight overall – six shy of joint-record champions Argentina and Uruguay.
