On the way from the concentration of Brazil to the Lusail stadium, the Canarinha mascot greeted each of the players and wished them the best for the first game against Serbia.

The history between the two teams is brief: they played two games, with two wins for La Canarinha, which won the 2018 World Cup in Russia 2-0, in the first round, and 1-0 in a friendly match played on the 6th of June 2014.

The most anticipated debut after the presentation of Argentina. Thousands of Brazilians fill the Doha metro stations to see the presentation of their team against Serbia, in the last-round match at the Lusail stadium. “Hexacampeón, hexacampeón”, shout the fans, confident of winning the sixth world cup here in Qatar. After winning the five-time championship in 2002, the Brazilians have four consecutive frustrations in the World Cups and, as always, they are excited. At the Fan Fest and in the Souq Waqif market area, two of the most lively places for foreign visitors on these cup nights, the Brazilians celebrated yesterday the defeat of Scaloni’s team in their debut. “There is only one thing better than seeing Brazil win, and that is seeing Argentina lose,” Leandro, from Florianópolis, told LA NACION on Wednesday.

Brazil has figures in all its lines, such as the goalkeeper Alisson Beckerthe defender Thiago Silvawho will be the captain and at 38 years old will participate in his fourth World Cup, (the previous ones in South Africa 2010, Brazil 2014 and Russia 2018), the midfielders Lucas Paquetá and Casemiro, and in attack Neymar together with Vinicius Jr. Another asset to highlight in Brazil is the scorer Pedro, a Flamengo figure, who could play before the Serbs and relegate Gabriel Jesús, in one of the doubts that Tite has to define the formation. The other unknown is in the defense since Marquinhos had a physical problem and if he doesn’t play, Militao will replace him. The South American team is a wide favorite against a rival like Serbia, which intends to overcome the initial phase for the first time and has as its exclusive credit the scorer Vlahovic, a Juventus figure in Italy, and other important ones such as Ajax’s Dusan Tadic, Nemanja Guldelj and goalkeeper Marko Dmitrovic, both from Seville, or Sergej Milinkovicfrom Lazio.

Welcome to the last game of the day on Thursday at the Qatar 2022 World Cup. Brazil, five-time world champion and great candidate for the title in Qatar 2022, will debut today against Serbia, a tough rival whose figure is Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic, in a match valid for the starting date of Group G, completed by Switzerland and Cameroon. The “Scratch” will start at 4:00 p.m. (Argentine time) at the Lusail Iconic Stadium, with the refereeing of the Iranian Alireza Faghani and television of the TyC Sports signal. Brazil, world champion in the Cups of Sweden ’58, Chile ’62, Mexico ’70, USA ’94 and Japan and Korea 2002, wants to regain prominence after being left out in the quarterfinals at the 2018 World Cup in Russia. The team led by Tite, 61, suffered a severe blow when last year they lost the final of the Copa América in the legendary Maracanã stadium against Argentina, and Qatar represents a good opportunity to resume the foreground.
