Brazil now asks Rodrygo to have more prominence

The 'canarinha' has been from the Copa América without winning. Tite praised the young Real Madrid attacker and said he will make changes in the match against Korea.


Brazil has not known what it is to win a game since the conquest of the Copa América title on July 7. There were three draws and two losses in five friendlies, the last one on Friday in the Arab Superclass against Argentina, in Riyadh. Five disappointing parties in which Brazil has lost its identity and has unleashed a series of criticisms in the country. Since 2012, Brazil did not have such a negative streak.

"I've been narrating matches of the Brazilian team for 40 years and I don't remember a duel against Argentina where our rivals would have dominated in this way. Although the result was short (0-1), it was a real beating," said Galvão Bueno, veteran TV storyteller Globo after Friday's defeat

The lack of creativity and fantasy of the team unleashed a series of criticisms of coach Canarinho, who still has not found an ideal eleven since he was defeated before Belgium in the World Cup quarters.

"The feeling I have is that there is not even a player who is capable of shining in this tactical system of Tite. Maybe Rodrygo," said journalist Ana Thais Matos, of SporTV. An opinion shared by Galvão Bueno. "Tite lacks audacity. He has no courage to put these guys to play as they should with the Canarinha shirt. Rodrygo scored three goals in the Champions League, he is the Brazilian who is most fit today, but Tite has no courage of putting him to play. He's insisting on the same old players all the time. Or Tite changes, or you have to change him, "said Bueno, one of the most respected sports journalists in the country.

Tite praised the entry of the young footballer of Madrid and said he will make changes to the team: "Rodrygo, Fabinho and Lodi trained well and may deserve a chance. It is clear that we have to win against Korea. I am aware of the timing of the selection."

Rodrygo must enter the post of Gabriel Jesus, on the right side, where Tite sees him "more at ease" since that is where he is playing with Zidane in Madrid.

Tite sees you as the joker

Brazil has a problem. Both Tite and his pupils recognize that the moment is not good but they have trouble finding an explanation for the lack of goal and creativity in the absence of Neymar. The answer may be Rodrygo. After the entry of the meringue, the attack gained versatility and breadth and the coach likes how the young man can play in both bands and open more spaces for Coutinho on the right and Lodi on the left.
