Dull and not interesting game. The risk of the players feeling confortable for the call a year before is all over there.

I am not a big fan of Alisson, I would have Vanderlei, Cássio and Ederson as the 3 goalies.

I also have doubts if Firmino is good enough for his role at the national team.

Firmino is not good, but Jô doesnt even fit with the system likes to use. Alisson is just fine. Cássio is ok, but for a keeper with his size, he has a lot of troubles leaving the goal.

I think with this draw , the player that had the biggest benefit was Douglas costa. All these teams should play us with 5 at the back, and we will need an orthodox winger.

The rise of Arthur and luan is also very good. Looks like Hernanes will miss out, despite the very good brasileirão. Also, big question is Jo. However firmino is scoring as a 9,

Right now the squad is probaly like this:

1. Allison

2. Daniel Alves 3. Marquinhos 4. Miranda 6. Marcelo

5. Casemiro

15. Paulinho 8. Renato augusto

11. Coutinho 10. Neymar jr

9. Gabriel jesus


12. Cassio 22. Ederson

13. Danilo 14. Thiago silva 23. Jemerson 16. Alex sandro

17. Fernandinho

18. Arthur 20. Luan

19. Willian 7. Douglas costa

21. Firmino


Hernanes , Jô , Diego all to miss out.

Can we change the headline of this topic.


Can you make it:

" The Titebility to the Hexability, Brazil on the road to glory - Russia 2018"

I am far glad there is no Hernanes. He was in 2014, wasnt even used (and people wondering who was the player Scolari regreted to take) and all he did since then was helping a team to avoid relegation. Those clowns at ESPN have no shame.

Anyways, no Jo. It is like Argentina institing on Higuain. He does not even fit in Tite system.

Much more worring is Daniel Alves, very bad in the last games and yesterday he was awful against Bayern.

Firmino is settling in to the #9 role and scoring every game.
He will secure the spot


Changed the thread name please, let's get the World Cup momentum going!!!

Naldo will come and make the team more balance.

----------------------Alisson
------- Marquinhos - Naldo - Miranda ( G.Silva )
Alves --------------------------------------Marcelo ( Alex Sandro )
--------------------Casemiro ( Fernandinho )
---------------------Paulinho
Coutinho ( Malcom )--------------------- Neymar
---------------------Jesus ( Firmino )

Alves and Marcelo are bad at defence this time so we should play 3 cb to fix their mistake and 3 CB will help Alves and Marcelo can go to attack more effective.
Naldo is having a good performance : 21 games - 5 goals - 2 assits for a defender. He is best tacker in Bundesliga this season ( 78% ) . And his heigh 1m98 is very useful for the air ball.

Hey fellas, how's going?

The new debate around BR squad is about Vinicius Junior and David Neris. Which one would you use as Wing?

BTW i'm new to the forum, Brazillian, love football, watch since 1994, and love the 80s (82 was the best squad that Brazil ever had). Root for Corinthians, and i'm covering the top 4 teams in Brazil for Dale's iniciative: If you don't mind a drop the websites in this post: Noticias do Corinthians, Noticias do Flamengo, Noticias do Palmeiras, Noticias do Gremio. For now they are in portuguese, but soon i'll launch a EN version.

Thanks a lot.

Neither. Both are unexperient, unproved. Vinicius isn't even able to be a starter for a season yet for any club.
