How Brazil could line up against Colombia

Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Brazil could line up for Thursday's Copa America clash with Colombia.

Brazil come into Thursday's Copa America clash against Colombia with a clean bill of health, and manager Tite has a deep and quality-filled squad to pick his XI from.

He rotated heavily between the first two games, making six changes, with the likes of Liverpool midfielder Fabinho and Chelsea centre-back Thiago Silva coming in for that match.

Forward Gabriel Barbosa also came into the side in the second match after finding the net in their opening win, but his spot is equally at risk given Brazil's immense collection of talent going forward.

Tite is expected to continue his rotation on Thursday, with the likes of Richarlison, Marquinhos and Casemiro potentially lined up for starts.

Casemiro will look to rejoin the side after shining in the opening win, potentially joining Liverpool enforcer Fabinho in a strong midfield pairing.

Meanwhile, talisman Neymar should be exempt from rotation, keeping his spot in the front line having hit two goals and an assist in the opening two games, making him one of the standout performers across the tournament so far.

They key dilemma for the manager arguably comes between the sticks, with Liverpool's Alisson Becker and Manchester City's Ederson battling for the number one spot, having each played one of the opening two games.

Brazil possible starting lineup: Ederson; Danilo, Militao, Marquinhos, Sandro; Richarlison, Fabinho, Casemiro, Everton; Neymar, Jesus

Sunday's key events


GOLF
· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

CYCLING - BMX
· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

SWIMMING
· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

BOXING
· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

TENNIS
· There will be a surprise on the top of the men's tennis podium after Novak Djokovic missed out on a medal altogether. Alexander Zverev takes on Karen Khachanov in the second match on Centre Court at the Ariake Tennis Park (7am-2pm)

SAILING
· Alison Young will be going for gold in the women's laser radial medal race (7.33am)

ARTISTIC GYMNASTICS
· Team GB's Max Whitlock will look to defend his 2016 Olympic title in the men's pommel horse final (10.41am)

ATHLETICS
· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

HOCKEY
· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
