In less than a month, the World Cup will begin. Therefore, it is now time to present you to the teams who will be competing in Doha for the ultimate title. The national team is Brazil!
20 years! Brazil, a five-time world champion, hasn’t won the World Cup in 20 years.
Ronaldo was still playing and it was in Japan and Korea, but it seems like such a long way off. Since that time, the Auriverde have been aware of unripe and green ones.
A quarter-ending elimination in 2006 and 2010, a major German trauma at home in 2014, and a loss to Belgium four years ago.
But this year, Brazil firmly believes in it. First of all, when a player like Firmino is left out, it means that there are resources in this team and that its attacking potential is enormous. Then, the defence is stronger than 4 years ago. Finally, Neymar is in the form of his Parisian life and is determined.
The surprise: Dani Alves
The former player of Sevilla, FC Barcelona, PSG and recently Pumas, Dani Alvès, is part of this selection. Suddenly, the defender, midfielder, and versatile winger could become the oldest player to play a match in the World Cup.
A somewhat unexpected selection for Alvès, who could have won all the international trophies if his country ever wins in Doha.
Brazil returned this year to Group G with Switzerland, Serbia and Cameroon. Three opponents are more or less of the same level, without little thumb but also without real opponents if the Brazilians play at their level.
If they qualify, they would face a Group H country consisting of Portugal, Ghana, Uruguay and South Korea. Nothing too crazy, it must be admitted.
Brazil is therefore on a mission: not only to put a sixth star on the jersey but also to win the World Cup for the third time with this well-known trophy.
So, according to FIFA rules, Brazil would keep the Cup for life.
