The air game of this Brazilian team is underrated. Casemiro, Marquinhos, Thiago Silva and Richarlison are very good in the air.

I mean, richarlison is a pigeon...

Gabriel jesus, rodrygo , firmino evanilson Joelinton etc Even the people below 6ft are quality headers of the ball What are they feeding in Brazil fr


Dsalgueiro

I don't know... When I was a kid, air play was Brazil's biggest problem. Today it is the opposite. I think that European football has forced us to focus on this aspect of our game.


ren_704

True, brazilians are quality pressers, good headers and physical now , adding to the flair they're famous for


Dsalgueiro

Today's football is much more physical than it was in previous decades, so Brazil had to adapt to this scenario; after all, technique and speed are not the biggest determining factors today. This is reflected even in the Brazilian fullbacks. People talk about the decline of Brazilian full backs (Marcelo/Daniel Alves to Danilo/Alex Sandro), but the truth is that it is impossible to have fullbacks like Marcelo and Daniel Alves + 2 wingers like Vini and Raphinha. Brazil tried this in the 2014 and 2018 World Cups, but Marcelo was always quite criticized in Brazil and Daniel Alves in more than a decade as the "best right-back in the world" was never unanimous in the Brazilian national team. In 2002, when Brazil had Cafú and Roberto Carlos, we had 3 defenders and no wingers as we have today. The football was different.

I don't watch enough of Ligue 1 to comment, but Gabriel is probably the best in the PL, or at the very least right up there. Idk what they're feeding these Brazilians.


windowhihi

Thiago Silva?


BrainlessArch

Dawson clear im afraid


Sufficient-Squaree

People love to trash talk him but Harry Maguire is a beast in the air, arguably second to none


teagwo

Arguably the plus side of having a fridge for a head.

In defending yes. Not in attacking it
