The defensive midfielder returns to the field against Switzerland, on the afternoon of next Monday (28), at 1 pm (Brasília time)
The Brazilian team debuted at the World Cup with a 2-0 victory over Serbia. If you beat Switzerland on the afternoon of next Monday (28), at 13:00 (Brasília time), at Estádio 974, the team commanded by coach Tite will be well on their way to qualifying for the round of 16 of the tournament organized by FIFA.
Casemiro is the starter for Brazil in front of the pair of defenders formed by Marquinhos and Thiago Silva. The sector may have the entry of Daniel Alves or Éder Militão in the 2nd round of Group G, given that Danilo is out of the group stage – as is Neymar. The number 5 of the national team gave an interview this Saturday afternoon (26).
The midfielder joked with the nickname he received from Filipe Luís, left-back for Flamengo and current commentator for SporTV in the Cup, and explained that Real Madrid also has its way of being called: “(Carlo) Ancelotti joked that I was the fireman, putting out the fire on the team. Each has its phrase. I’m happy, this is my job. Helping teammates, defense, helping the team win”, he began.
“Talking about Filipe, he’s a great friend, it’s a great pleasure to hear him talking about me. I just appreciate his words. He’s a guy who sees football differently, even as a coach. It is already a little further away than here (laughs), It is a pleasure to hear the words for the player he was and the victor that he continues to be at Flamengo”, added Casemiro.
Filipe Luís has been shining as a commentator. With the renewal forwarded in the CRF, the idol of the Flamengo Nation even appeared on the BR pre-list and was on alert until 24 hours before the 1st round. Behind the scenes, it was rumored that the athlete could be on the commission during the World Cup, but the possibility ended up not advancing. He shows he wants to stay in the middle when he hangs up his boots and projects his coaching career.
