The situation became worse when coach Tite further criticized the pitch and how tough it is to play on it. He expressed his sadness about the players who play in top-notch pitches in Europe and have to play in such bad pitches in Brazil. The creative players who help the team in build-up plays are finding it hard to create because of the pitch, Tite said in a statement.

“I am not going to call this pitch horrible, but it is very bad to play soccer, it affects the whole spectacle. Those willing to create just cannot.” “The time to do this (Copa America) was too short. It is unacceptable that players of two teams of high level, who play with a great pitch in Europe, come here to play on a pitch like this.”

This is not the first time that the organisers of the Copa America have been questioned. Last year Lionel Messi spoke against CONMEBOL which sparked controversies. This year on June 18, CONMEBOL fined Bolivia striker Marcelo Martins $20,000 for blaming the soccer body for the rising COVID-19 cases at the Copa America.

Brazil players reportedly threatened to boycott the competition just before it started. They published a letter saying they are against the organisation. However, they played in the competition citing that they will not say no to national team.
