Brazil manager praises the match-winning effort of Richarlison

Brazil head coach Tite has been impressed with the qualities of Richarlison since his induction into the national team. The Everton ace was first called up for the Selecao in August and he has continued to build his recognition with his performances which have certainly impressed the manager in charge.

In the recent friendly against Cameroon, Richarlison was called from the bench after just eight minutes following a groin injury for Neymar, and he took the opportunity with both hands by scoring the only goal in the 1-0 triumph over the Indomitable Lions. Speaking after the game, Tite praised the attacker’s qualities saying:

Lucas Moura Gets Back to Brazilian National Team after Two Years

Tottenham winger Lucas Moura has been handed the opportunity to link up with Brazilian national team once again after being called up for the friendlies against Saudi Arabia and Argentina. Lucas Moura has been in the wilderness with regards to the national team front for the last couple of years. After emerging as a potential star when he was with São Paulo in the early part of the decade, he made the move to Paris St Germain in 2013 for a fee of around € 45 million. This made him as one of the most expensive players in the world back then. However, lack of regular first-team opportunities with the French outfit resulted in the player making just three substitute appearances for the national team in the last five years.

Lucas has still come up with 34 appearances for the national team since his debut in 2011, but there is no doubt that his career has stalled in the last couple of seasons. The 26-year-old is making a comeback after joining Spurs for a fee of about £ 25 million. Even though his first campaign with Spurs was relatively quiet after he made only one goal in 11 appearances, the winger has had a positive start to the 2018-19 campaign and has already come up with three goals in just 10 games. His form has been noticed by Tite, who has called him as a replacement for Gremio forward Everton, who has suffered a thigh injury.

It is almost a year that Tite took charge of the Brazil team and what an impact he has made on the team. When he took over, Brazil was a team suffering from a humiliating defeat at the World Cup and Copa America, and many pundits had written them off for the upcoming World Cup in Russia.

However, Tite will change their fortunes around and help the players believe in themselves. The performance speaks for itself with Brazil winning 9 games out of 10 counting for the qualifiers. Indeed Brazil are already qualified for the next World Cup and can now focus on building a team that will allow them to perform in Russia.

Tite is turning Brazil into a force

The Brazilian national football team is going through a revival after being humiliated back on 2014 when losing 1-7 against Germany as they lost the FIFA World Cup of that specific year. Brazil also went on to lose 0-3 after having faced off with Netherlands as they failed to even secure the 3rd spot.

These strings of defeats were a huge disappointment for Brazil as they were hosting that edition of the FIFA World Cup and expectations were high for Neymar along with his squad to showcase their talents but failed to do it in a very unmemorable fashion. (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 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.
