These are Tite’s team to face Venezuela, on October 7, in Caracas, Colombia, in Barranquilla, and Uruguay, in Manaus, in the South American World Cup qualifiers.
The team won the eight matches they played, this is more than just heading to qualify for Qatar.
You will qualify mathematically if the expected wins are plus three.
Ederson, Allison, Weaverton, Militao, Marquinhos, Thiago Silva, Danilo, Alex Sandro, Casemiro, Fabinho, Neymar, Richarlison, Gabriel Jesus and Paqueta are more than guaranteed for next year’s worlds.
Richarlison was not called because he was injured.
And Daniel Alves for not having a club.
In other words, 16 athletes can already prepare for the Qatar heat.
There were three main issues in the call.
First, the presence of athletes working in England.
Coordinator Juninho Paulista did not guarantee the presence of the players, only saying that he was “confident” that they would be in the matches. That is, FIFA can pressure the clubs, this time, to release, unlike what happened in the last call.
It is noteworthy that Claudinho and Zenit’s Malkun, who left the national team in the matches against Chile, Argentina and Peru, excluded Tite from the list.
The coach and Juninho Paulista asked the two not to return to Russia last month, but they preferred to obey their club.
As for the ‘English’, the CBF has already secured the release from the federal government so that they are not subject to the mandatory 15-day quarantine, which is required for those coming from the UK.
They are Ederson, Alison, Emerson, Thiago Silva, Fabinho, Fred, Gabriel Jesus and Ravenha.
The second focus was to summon Anthony. The Ajax striker deserved a chance at the top for a long time. But Titi finally called the skilful player and runner. And the coach gave up after his excellent performance in the Olympics. Then by Ajax.
And the third, of course, was Daniel Alves.
The 38-year-old has not been called up consistently.
The reason is that it is not in any club.
But the coach erred that once he finds a place to play, the 38-year-old is guaranteed a place in the national team.
“In the last call, we spoke with him and we put all the aspects that he brings and that sends him to the Brazilian national team,” he added.
“I have contacted Danny with a letter, I will not say what it is because I do not feel qualified for it, but there is, yes, there is support for him to find the best path for him. It is important not only for the national team, but also for Brazilian football.”
Yes, coach Daniel Alves, or “Danny,” as he calls him, warned with a message that he would not be called up. this time.
Even to avoid the barrage of criticism he might receive, for being called the player without a club.
Tite already has most of the athletes he will take to Qatar.
They outperform other teams in South America, including Argentina, to which Brazil lost the Copa America.
The problem will be with Europeans, who follow modernity tactically, such as Italy, England, France and Holland. Apart from Germany and Spain that are rebuilding. The Brazilian Football Confederation cannot arrange friendlies and clashes to improve selection.
South American qualifiers are mandatory.
But an illusion.
Titi knows this.
But he does not even take it for torture …
