Copa America 2024 Group D Prediction

Leaving the struggles of the Fernando Diniz era behind, Brazil have looked promising under the leadership of Dorival Junior in 2024 and should be strong enough, particularly in attacking areas, to fire themselves to first position in Group D of this summer's Copa America.

That leaves three nations to fight it out for the final spot in the quarter-finals, and we reckon that an in-form Colombia side will make it into the last eight, with Paraguay finishing in third place, meaning that Costa Rica will end up bottom of the section.
