If as a team we dont start playing better, Paqueta will fail and will leave in a season or two to Sevilla or Valencia
The "he seems more European than Brazilian" bit.Why do you say that?
I believe you missed a "no" in the first sentence of your last paragraphPaquetá was taken off after 45 minutes in Brazil - Argentina.
After the game Rivaldo was talking poorly about him, and how "he cannot be Brazil's no. 10" and it's a "lack of respect", "should be a bench player", etc. He then said he was trying to protect Paquetá but that's clearly a messed up way to do it.
That said, Paquetá in current form has business starting for Brazil. He's played one decent game all season. It was the last one though, so hopefully this NT fiasco doesn't ruin his mojo.
