DOHA: The Brazilian squad is still puzzled by the tactics that will be used in their first action against Serbia in Group G of the Qatar 2022 World Cup at Lusail Stadium early tomorrow morning.
However, it is expected that the squad coached by Tite will continue to stick to their traditional tactics through an attacking style of play in their quest for a sixth title to win the prestigious cup.
Brazilian striker, Raphinha said, regardless of which player is sent to the Selecao squad which is lined up with nine strikers, their mission remains the same which is to win in every action in Qatar.
“The coach still does not give a shadow about the selection of players before the first action and there are no guarantees including for Vinicius Jr to be in the eleven
“We are an attacking team and having many forwards is one of our advantages this time.
“We are confident that the appearance of Vinicius makes the team faster and having Lucas Paqueta will make Brazil more dangerous in midfield,” said Raphinha.
Ahead of the kick-off against Serbia, Tite is still secretive about whether he wants to put Fred with his teammate at Manchester United, Casemiro to solidify the midfield or pair Vinicius with Neymar, Richarlison and Raphinha.
In the meantime, striker Richarlison also agrees with Raphinha about the formation that Brazil should use and clearly stated what he wants the coach to do.
“I will play with several players up front. More strikers, I will often receive the ball and be able to score more goals. That’s what I want, to be Brazil’s number 9,” said Richarlison.
After playing Serbia early tomorrow morning, the Selecao squad will face Switzerland and Cameroon in Group G action.
The pressure is now on as Brazil wants to create a record sixth title appearance with a squad full of talented players and new faces as 16 of them will appear for the first time on the highest stage.
Leading the youngsters on stage this time is in-form star Neymar, who has ensured Brazil have won 37 of their 50 matches since losing to Belgium in the quarter-finals of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Meanwhile, coming up with an attack line that is currently at its best makes Serbia one of the teams capable of creating a big surprise in Qatar.
The competition this time saw Serbia clearly more prepared from the beginning through several results of the action before that which were very positive and the pattern of the game was more convincing.
In fact, the team also left a very interesting current record after they occupied the top position of the group chart in the Nation League competition.
Serbian manager Dragan Stojkovic has performed positively so far to steer the team on the right track to challenge for any title.
From the 20 matches Serbia faced during his coaching, he managed to give the country 13 victories in total.
He likes to use a three-defensive system in matches, especially during the last Nations League competition through a 3-4-2-1 formation to place Aleksandar Mitrovic as the lone striker. – Agency/MESSENGER
