Liverpool fullback Aurelio: Copa America big test for new Brazil team

Liverpool fullback Fabio Aurelio feels Brazil's Copa America campaign takes on special significance due to the football-mad nation hosting the 2014 Word Cup.

Aurelio says he's looking forward to seeing how they fare in Argentina.

He told LFC Weekly: "I think the Copa America is viewed like the Euros here. It is very important for all the national teams but especially for Brazil as we won't have any qualifying games for the next World Cup because we are hosts.

"Therefore the team won't have so many opportunities to prepare for that tournament so the Copa America will be a great opportunity to see how the team is faring. People are already looking forward to the World Cup in 2014 so the Copa America is very exciting and I am very much looking forward to it."
