Casemiro vindicates himself

The Real Madrid midfielder has been included in the ideal team of the recently disputed Copa América. Argentina and Brazil monopolize the eleven.


Casemiro-Yotún-De Paul. These three men are for CONMEBOL the best midfielders of the 2021 Copa América won by Argentina. And it is that despite the fact that the Brazilian National Team did not manage to win the trophy, Casemiro has proven to be one of the best footballers of the tournament and his inclusion in the ideal eleven of the tournament demonstrates this.

The white midfielder has been a key player for Tite's Brazil for several years and this edition of the Copa América has not been the opposite. Of the seven games that the Rio de Janeiro national team has played, Casemiro has played a total of six, five as a starter and completing all the minutes. In Brazil-Peru (4-0) in the group stage, the Brazilian coach gave him rest and in the last game of the league against Ecuador (1-1) Casemiro came out in the second half. The Brazilian coach has measured the minutes of a player who is essential in the team's midfield. Throughout this tournament, Tite has changed the drawing between 4-2-3-1 and 4-3-3, but Casemiro has always remained the axis of the midfielder. The same has happened with his teammates, while Tite did not give a fixed role to Fred, Fabinho or Paquetá, Casemiro has always been in the important games: he has played every minute of the eliminatory games. He even managed to score the winning goal in the 90th minute of play in the group stage match against Colombia (2-1) .

The other two Real Madrid members of the Brazilian team, Militao and Vinicius, have not played as many minutes as the midfielder. Although it is true that Militao has alternated the ownership of the first matches with the substitution of the qualifying rounds, Vinicius has not played any match as a starter. All his minutes played have been as a substitute in the four games in which Tite gave him a chance. Valverde, another of the madridistas who have played this tournament with Uruguay, was an important footballer for his team. The midfielder played every game as a starter until the Uruguayan National Team was eliminated in the quarterfinals against Colombia on penalties (0 (2) - (4) 0).A gray European Championship

The eight representatives of Real Madrid in the European Championship (Courtois, Hazard, Kross, Varane, Benzema, Modric, Alaba and Bale), on the other hand, have not achieved the same performance as Casemiro. None of them appear in the ideal eleven of the Eurocopa recently disputed and in which the young Spanish Pedri does appear. Of the white footballers, Hazard and Courtois were the ones who traveled the furthest in the tournament: they reached the quarter-finals in which champion Italy won them 1-2. Thus, and waiting for what the white footballers summoned by their national teams for the Olympic games (Asensio, Ceballos, Vallejo and Kubo) do, Casemiro has shown this summer that he maintains his high level and that next season will continue to be key both in your club as well as your selection.
