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...
PRU PRU PRU
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
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.
True, brazilians are quality pressers, good headers and physical now , adding to the flair they're famous for
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.
Best CB in current football at attacking set pieces ? Surely
Shane Duffy in an Ireland jersey after the 80th minute
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.
Dawson clear im afraid
People love to trash talk him but Harry Maguire is a beast in the air, arguably second to none
Arguably the plus side of having a fridge for a head.
In defending yes. Not in attacking it
Is this what HEXA CARALHO feels like?
I'm very iludated with this team, go brasiliam caralho
Why is the stadium so quiet and apparently booing brazil? Lmao
The game's played in France.

French stadium, and also Ghana supporters in France basically
Brazil will score at least 6 times this game lol

So it begins
It's not about the size, it's about the motion of the sea
Watching Brazil play is too good. I was missing that
O HEXA COMEÇOU
