How have Brazil changed since the World Cup? – football news


GOAL ANALYSIS – Raisa Simplicio & Rupert Fryer


Following World Cup 2018, Brazil coach Tite and his technical staff are leading a process of renewal in the Selecao. Their work has been broken down into three stages: the short, medium and long term.

The short term utilised the six Brasil Global Tour dates from September to November, the first big test of which arrived this week with the Superclasico against Argentina in Jeddah.

The 1-0 victory over their old rivals made it four straight victories, but it is the performances rather than the results of those matches that are most important to the coach.

Tite has taken the opportunity to introduce a number of new faces, handing out nine debuts since the World Cup (Neto, Felipe, Eder Militao, Andreas Pereira, Arthur, Lucas Paqueta, Richarlison, Everton and Pablo), while retaining the core of the World Cup squad. The intention is to find an ideal blend of youth and experience.


A FIXED CAPTAIN

The big news ahead of the Selecao’s first post-World Cup test was the appointment of a new captain. After two years of rotating the armband around the squad, Tite announced that Neymar was being anointed the responsibility on a permanent basis. Tite made a point of explaining his decision, insisting that his no.10 was the technical leader of the team who will guide them into World Cup 2022. 

There were some reservations following intense criticism of Neymar’s temperament in Russia, but it is clear to see that the 26-year-old has learned from the experience and is growing. Some of the criticism appeared to miss the point; this was not a reward from Tite, but rather a tool to ensure the player remains entirely focused and accepts his responsibility on the pitch.


ARTHUR’S EMERGENCE

The most prominent of all the new arrivals is Barcelona midfielder Arthur. The former Gremio man charmed the coaching staff and started against Argentina, a match in which Tite played what he believes is his best team. The match served as a something of a ‘simulation’ for next year’s Copa America, a tournament Tite is under huge pressure to win.

If the tournament started today, Arthur would be in the first-team. Despite having just over a year of senior football under his belt, Arthur has shown the strength, athleticism, tactical nous and technical quality to set the rhythm in the Brazil midfield, seemingly relegating Manchester Untied’s Fred back to the bench.


STRONG CORE

While Brazil are going through a major renovation, the Selecao remains standing on a solid foundation of five key players. In goal, Alisson has been consistently excellent and is yet to let his country down, though Ederson is pushing him hard. Marquinhos is the one member of the back-four whose place is assured, while Casemiro at the base of the midfield remains possibly his side’s most important player in terms of the team’s overall functionality.

In midfield, Coutinho – whether wide right or in central midfield – is immovable and so too is Neymar. Arthur is on the verge of making it six, but elsewhere places are very much up for grabs. Both full-back positions are being keenly contested and as many as half of the positions in midfield and attack are yet to be claimed.


STRIKING COMPETITION

One of the biggest changes for Brazil post-World Cup has been in the centre-forward position. For two years, Gabriel Jesus was immovable from the no.9 position. However, after failing to score in Russia, Tite has had a rethink. Jesus was left out of the squad completely last month but returned last week and found the net against Saudi Arabia.

Roberto Firmino, for so long his understudy, is now pushing for a start. Moreover, Everton forward Richarlison has entered the race after starring against El Salvador last month with two goals. The Argentina match saw Firmino and Jesus start a Brazil match together for the very first time, but they seemed to lack an understanding and the attack certainly lacked cohesion overall. Tite, then, has plenty to ponder up front ahead of next month’s Brasil Global Tour.


NEW FORMATIONS

This week, for the match against Argentina, Tite took the extremely rare decision not to confirm his starting XI on the eve of the game, explaining that he was yet to devise his tactical plan for the contest. The 4-1-4-1/4-3-3 that had been omnipresent since his appointment has changed following their disappointment in Russia.

Against Saudi Arabia, he used three different formations and against Argentina went out with two centre-forwards, though Jesus did play from the right. The theory was that Firmino would drop and the likes of Neymar and Jesus would exploit the space. However, in practice it proved problematic, and will undoubtedly require more work on the training ground.

Regardless, Tite and his staff are working hard on varying Brazil’s shape and finding a system that can get his best attackers onto the field while retaining the ‘balance’ he believes is so important.

Richarlison and Arthur set for Brazil starts – football news

Everton forward Richarlison is set to make his Brail debut on Tuesday when the Selecao meet El Salvador on the Brasil Global Tour.

Barcelona midfielder Arthur is in line to make his first start, too, as coach Tite shuffles his pack for the clash at FedEx Field in Landover.

Brazil returned to the training field in Washington on Monday, which saw Tite present his first-team to the watching media in customary fashion as he split the team in starters and reserves.

The five-time world champions cruised to a 2-0 win over USA on Friday in New Jersey to kick-off a new era in style and will use their second Brasil Global Tour date this month to test some fresh faces.

Richarlison, who joined the squad as a late replacement for the injured Pedro, will slot into the centre-forward role in place of Roberto Firmino in one of five changes to the starting line-up.

Porto youngster Eder Militao will come in at right-back for his first international cap, while Alex Sandro will replace Filipe Luis on the left side of the defence.

And there will also be a long-awaited debut for Valencia goalkeeper Neto, who will finally make his Brazil bow some eight years after his first international call-up. 

Neto has been present in the Brazil squad for more than 20 matches but is yet to see a single minute for his country.

Brazil star Arthur humbled by Messi praise – football news

Arthur has thanked his new Barcelona team-mate Lionel Messi for his praise of the new Brazil midfielder.

Former Gremio man Arthur joined Barca in June and this week is hoping to make his international debut as the Selecao face USA and El Salvador on the Brasil Global Tour.

And on Wednesday Arthur expressed his pride after Messi compared him to former Barca great Xavi.

“I’m very happy to receive that praise from Messi, particularly as it’s him, an exceptional guy. There are no words to express how much he means to football,” Arthur told the press in New Jersey.

“It is a great responsibility to defend Barcelona and Brazil. I have been welcomed by both and the adaptation has gone well with both so far.”

Arthur looks set to miss out on a starting role against USA on Friday, with Fred slotting into midfield alongside Casemiro and Philippe Coutinho, but is expected to play some part in the game and will be targeting a full international bow on Tuesday against El Salvador.

“I am not in direct competition with Fred, we can play together, but it’s a fair and healthy battle anyway,” he said. 

“Those of us who are coming in must get used to the process here, there is a lot to learn. We have been called up to fit the system. The players coming into the side now have to observe everything and learn the lessons.”
