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 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…)

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…)

CARLOS ALBERTO: DON’T MAKE NEYMAR CAPTAIN

World Cup-winning captain Carlos Alberto for Brazil has given a very unusual advice in the midst of turmoil in the national team.  Alberto, who lifted the World Cup for his country as far back as 1970, urged the recently hired new coach Tite to strip the play maker of his captaincy, contrary to popular opinion.

The sacked two time coach of the national side Dunga made Neymar the captain when he took charge of the team after the 2014 World Cup Finals knockout. He is believed to be set to continue when Tite takes over fully but Alberto has urged him not to do so. (more…)
