Brazil heads into this year’s World Cup as the bookmaker’s favourite and it’s easy to see why. With a squad that can boast the likes of Alisson, Fabinho, Eder Militao, Thiago Silva, Vinicius Jr and Neymar – Brazil look to have a complete squad.
It’s been twenty years since Brazil last lifted the World Cup and since their victory in 2002, they have struggled, failing to get past the quarterfinals…
Under head coach Tite, Brazil once again look like a formidable outfit and are expected to comfortably progress from a group that contains Serbia, Cameroon, and Switzerland.
Heading into the World Cup there is a feeling that this year’s tournament could be the last for a generation of players as well as their manager.
Tite revealed in recent interviews that he has turned down numerous opportunities to return to club football with PSG, Sporting Lisbon, and Real Madrid all reportedly making approaches.
Success in Qatar has been Tite’s objective over the past four years, and it’s apparent that he wasn’t going to let anything distract him.
This World Cup will be Tite’s second in charge of Brazil and it could well be his last. If he is able to end Brazil’s 20 year wait for World Cup glory, it’s a guarantee that a whole host of clubs will be after his services.
