World Cup Team Watch: Brazil

Brazil is one of the front-runners for the World Cup thanks to the quality and depth of the squad. They have five victories under their belt, with the most recent being in 2002, and on December 18 they will travel to Qatar as one of the favorites to win the World Cup. Brazil is the squad that the rest of the world fears the most, but it also has the character and abilities to dominate in Qatar. Brazil is looking up ambitiously at a sixth World Cup victory rather than down fearfully at the other contenders nipping at their heels, which is appropriate for a team with such skill and a country with such a rich World Cup past.

In CONMEBOL qualifying, Tite’s team set a new record for the most points scored. They have now gone 29 games without losing in World Cup qualifying, taking into account the 12-game winning streak going up to Russia 2018. Brazil will be feeling confident going into this tournament at both ends of the field as seen by their 13 clean sheets in their last 17 qualifying games, with an average of 2.5 goals scored per game. Where there was once conflict and skepticism in Russia, there is now harmony and faith. The samba beat has harmony to it. It is now up to Brazil to demonstrate its talent.

Brazil as a country is not lacking in optimism over the performance of the national football team. Those confidence levels are extremely high heading into this World Cup, and it’s easy to understand why. They are performing well under Tite, Neymar is having a fantastic season at Paris Saint-Germain, and their squad depth is unmatched. For the Seleço, everything is coming together. Trust in the manager is essential. The person in charge of getting the greatest performance out of the nation’s most technically brilliant players has occasionally come under scrutiny, but not this time.
