BRAZILIAN TALENTS SCOUTED AT BH CUP

Premier League sides have reportedly sent their top scouts to watch the talents at the Belo Horizonte Cup.


The tournament is set to begin this week so top sides want to take advantage since it has proved to be a goldmine for talents.

The tournament is a grassroots competition for under 17 rising stars in Brazil. It is known to pull scouts who get to see the next generation playing the game passionately. Brazilian new source O Tempo claims that Manchester United, Man City and Arsenal have scouts billed to attend the event.

The man City are sending is the one that helped Gabriel Jesus to the Etihad last summer. City paid £27 million for the player but he resumed in January 2017. The youngster is already building an impressive profile in the English top flight already. (more…)

Archie Thompson finds Brazilian Football is Best than Rest of the World

Archie Thompson reckons the thing which distinguishes Brazilian Football from the rest of the world is the fact that they enjoy the game more than anyone else.


But, in the past few years, that wasn’t the case. The Brazilian team wasn’t as relaxed as they used to be and that’s probably why they suffered in terms of results, especially in big competitions. However with Tite’s arrival as coach, they are now back to their old selves and that’s reflecting in their recent results as they are cruising to easy wins.

Recalling a story of the past, Thompson says that once the Australian team had to play a World Cup game versus Brazil and he was a part of that Australian team. When he and his teammates departed from the hotel to the ground, everybody had a serious look on his face and everybody was thinking about the game only, but, when they reached the ground and left their bus, they saw the bus of the Brazilians standing there and the scenes in that bus were completely opposite to what the scenes were in the bus of the Aussies.

The arrival of Tite has seen David Luiz being snubbed from Brazil

The 55 year old manager Tite took over the Brazilian national side on June of 2016 as he replaced Dunga who was fired and now it’s Tite’s task to start pushing Brazil forward and guide them to the qualification stages of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.


Brazil is currently pitted at the top of the CONMEBOL group with 27 points out of their 12 matches that they have played so far at the time of writing this article. The Brazilian side is one the favorites of snatching the top spot and qualify for the upcoming worldwide football competition.

All of this is good news for supporters of Brazil as it seems like Tite has been doing a good job since taking over the national team almost 1 year ago.

Unfortunately for David Luiz, his time with Brazil has been diminishing as the 29 year old defender of Chelsea has not been called up ever since Tite arrived. (more…)

RONALDO NOT HAPPY WITH ‘FAT’ JOKES

Ronaldo Delima is not happy with the constant taunting of his current stature and the Brazil legend has voiced out his dissatisfaction.


When the former player reunited with his former teammates at the Santiago Bernabeu recently Newcastle legend Michael Owen took a jibe at him but Ronaldo did not ‘feel’ it at all.

Owen most likely intended to make a light joke when he tweeted: “I thought I was putting the pounds on until I saw my old mate Ronnie!”

Ronaldo did not take the issue lightly and he responded at the FIFA Best Player Award ceremony in Zurich, Switzerland, saying: “I am shocked as to how much importance my weight garners in the world we live in. I don’t know why it is so important, to be honest.” (more…)

CHAPECOENSE FANS GATHER FOR MEMORIAL

The bodies of the dead 71 people killed in the plane crash in Columbia are being returned home.


The Brazilian football team’s hometown is preparing for a memorial service in their honour. The planned memorial’s venue is the team’s stadium in Chapeco where more than 100,000 people are expected to attend.

Chapecoense had a fairy tale route to a regional final where they were flying to before the accident. Only six people survived the plane crash near Medellin – the venue for the final match. Top dignitaries in football will be at the memorial. President Michel Temer of Brazil is expected to be at the airport as the bodies arrive but is believed would miss the event at the stadium as rumours of a protest circulate. FIFA president Gianni Infantino and top football faces are expected at the event.

Hundreds of people lined up on the road, paying their final respect amidst free flowing tears as the bodies were taken to the airport in Medellin on Friday. Series of flights have been planned to the different countries of the victims.

Supporters of the Brazilian side held a vigil ahead of the memorial service. The bodies of the vctims are poised to be carried during a funeral procession through the city before ending up at the ceremony at the stadium. (more…)

Tite can push Brazil to World Cup success

Following a disappointing string of performances during the Copa America Centenario, Dunga was fired from his coaching position in the Brazilian national side and Adenor Leonardo Bacchi, better known as Tite was the man that was selected to usher in a new era for the Brazilian team.

Tite is not a very well-known manager in the spectrum of high-profile coaches. Throughout the entirety of his managerial career, he has been able to take charge of numerous Brazilian clubs and lifted many titles for those clubs but none of them are as competitive as the Champions League or other highly competed pieces of silverware that managers would give everything they have in order to secure it.

Tite Reveals Reservations about Becoming Brazil Boss

Brazil boss Tite says that he had second thoughts about becoming the new boss of the national team.

After successive disappointments at the World Cup 2014 and the Copa America 2016, the national team was looking at a third manager in less than two years. Both the previous managers, though, were known to the nation from their spell previously and the decision this time was to give a new man the chance. Former Corinthians manager Tite has been a name mentioned as a potential national team boss even when Scolari was appointed a couple of years ago.

His ability to beat European Champions Chelsea in the final of the Club World Cup in Japan was a major factor in the stock of the 55-year-old raising considerably. He was in charge of Corinthians in two spells and was more successful in the first. Still, the decision was taken to appoint the manager. Tite, though, had his reservations since he had seen two extremely successful national team bosses – Scolari and Dunga – fail to bring glory days back to Brazil. The current crop of Brazilian talent was far away from success it seemed. However, Tite has taken over and Brazil have had a strong start to the World Cup 2018 campaign with two wins from the opening matches. (more…)

Silva back in the Brazil team

Thiago Silva will be given a chance to get back in the Brazil team by Tite. Silva was omitted from the squad by Dunga, and it now appears that the new Brazil coach wants to give the player a chance to get back in the team.

The player has been out of the team for more than a year and may now be available for selection in the match against Bolivia and Venezuela.

It was Dunga who gave Silva his chance in the Brazil team, and it was the same coach that refused to play him for more than a year. And now with the arrival of Tite at the head of the team, it appears that Silva will be getting the chance once again to represent Brazil at the highest level. (more…)

Tite appointed as the new Brazil coach

Brazil has appointed Tite as the new coach for the national team. He will be replacing Dunga, who has been sacked last week following the elimination of the team from the Copa America. Indeed the Brazilian side has been eliminated from the group stage of the competition.

Tite, who was working with Corinthians before his appointment, said that it was an honor for him to be managing the Brazilian team. He said that he always has dreamed of managing the Brazil national team and that he believes that now the time has come. He said that this has always been a personal goal for him and that he will do everything he can in order to bring success to the Brazil team.

Tite has enjoyed a successful career as manager so far where he has managed team such as Corinthians and Sao Paulo among others. His most successful period has been from 2010 to 2013 where he has won the title, the Copa Libertadores as well as the World Club Cup with Corinthians.

The Brazil national team is currently going through a difficult period. After the humiliation at the last World Cup there were hopes that Brazil can win the Copa America, but unfortunately, the team failed to perform and was eliminated at the group stage.

At the moment Brazil is sixth in the World Cup qualifying tournament and Tite will have to find a way to boost his team performance. Indeed only the top four in the table will qualify directly for the World Cup, and Brazil will have to improve dramatically if they do not want to miss the first World Cup of their history. Tite knows that this will not be easy and that he will need to start working as soon as possible.

Ronaldo believes that Neymar can inspire the Brazil team

Ronaldo believes that Neymar can inspire the Brazil team to victory at the Olympics


Brazil legend Ronaldo believes that Neymar can inspire Brazil to a first victory at the Olympics football tournament. Despite its success at World Cups, Brazil has never won the gold medal at Olympics football, and Ronaldo believes that they can make it this year.

The Olympics will be held this year in Brazil, and Ronaldo believes that this will be an advantage for the team. Indeed, Brazil will want to put the humiliation they suffer at their own World Cup behind them and ensure that they won a gold medal in this tournament. The media is already putting pressure on the team especially with the poor run of results that the team is having in the World Cup qualifying campaign.

However, Ronaldo believes that the quality, as well as the experience of Neymar, should lift the team and help them win the gold medal for the first time in their history. (more…)
