Rodrygo will have the chance to start for the first time with the Brazilian national team in the World Cup against Cameroon
One of the questions that Brazilian Team announced to have for the match against Cameroon do not exist anymore. In midfield, Rodrygo got the better of Everton Ribeiro and will start this Friday’s matchat 4 pm (Brasília time), at the closing of group G of world Cup from Qatar.
THE confirmation came in an informal chat with assistant Cléber Xavier after the official FIFA interview, in which Tite praised the young player’s performance Real Madrid in response in which he avoided saying whether any name that will start against Cameroon can also be a starter in the round of 16.
“I don’t know how to speak. The questions are difficult, I keep trying to find them. The field speaks, the ball speaks. Did any of you understand that Rodrygo could be used as much as it was? The ball speaks. I have to opportunize“, he praised.
“I don’t know how it will behave, develop. Who would have thought that Danilo would be out? Prepare everyone. This sense is our goal“, he said, appreciating the strength of the group.
🇧🇷We have 26 athletes of the highest level. Who will play… You take Fabinho, holder of the Liverpool🇧🇷 Ederson, from manchester city🇧🇷 Gabriel and Martinelli, in the Arsenal🇧🇷 It’s a lot of concentration to give them the conditions to compete at a high level. It’s what I do.”
Tite also valued players who come off the bench and can make a difference in the Cup, especially now that the coach has a choice of five substitutions.
“A coach told me: there are three players who will be on the field to decide. Get ready, you’re going to have to decide🇧🇷 In those last few games, five came on when the game was decided (against Serbia) and another four entered (with the Switzerland) to decide game. IT IS the actual preparation. I have to put only 11, but I want more for the quality they have.”
With the confirmation of Rodrygo, Brazil continues with two doubts to face Cameroon: Bruno Guimarães or Fred and Gabriel Jesus or Pedro🇧🇷 The tendency is for the team to enter with: Ederson, Daniel Alves, Éder Militão, Bremer, Alex Telles, Fabinho, Bruno (Fred), Rodrygo, Antony, Martinelli and Gabriel Jesus (Pedro).
