After participating in the victory with the Brazilian team against Bolivia, Rodrygo spoke from the Rio concentration camp about his feelings this season. The young Brazilian player, aware that his career in the Seleçao has only just begun, defined himself as a player who is constantly learning: “I am a boy who listens a lot to what older people say. This year I think I have matured a lot in all areas of my life (explaining his case with the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic). I am very happy that several people have helped me. ”

And one of those people he refers to is his coach at Real Madrid, Zinedine Zidane. Rodrygo explained his work with the French coach: “I think that working at Madrid with him makes it easier for me to play for the wings. When I realized that I would have more opportunities if I learned to play both ways, it was very important to me. In Madrid I started to play more on the right. It has been a process of adaptation, but it gives me options not only to do it in the team, but also in the National Team. That favors me. ”

He also refused to be compared to Robinho and Neymar. All three have come out of the Santos quarry, but Rodrygo wanted to emphasize that he is not compared to any of them: “From the beginning of my career, at Santos, they already made comparisons with Neymar (with whom he agreed for a few minutes in the field last Friday in the win against Bolivia) and with Robinho. I always wanted to be Rodrygo, to make my story. They already have theirs. I am still starting. There is only one Neymar. There is only one Robinho. I have always tried to take off that weight and I try to be Rodrygo. ”

Brazil will play again on Tuesday night against Peru, in Lima (02:00 am). Tite's men will seek to secure three more points on their way to secure a place for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
