Brazil is clear: it 'asks' Tite not to feel Vinicius

Will Vinicius Junior be a substitute on Thursday (8:00 p.m. in Spain) against Serbia? It is the main doubt that surrounds the brazilian national team and that exists since the concentration in Turin. It was then when different media, in Spain MARCA, pointed to this possibility as one of the shuffles by tite. Information to the side, the preference of the Brazilian journalists in Doha is the majority: the Real Madrid footballer should start his debut in the 2022 World Cup.

This newspaper asked about it a large group of Brazilian professionals who accompany the day to day of the Canarinha in Qatar. Regardless of whether it is the written press and the web, radio or television, as well as whether it is national or state: Of the 17 consulted, only two (11.76%; 88.24% against) answered affirmatively to the proposed question: Would you understand/support/would it be okay for Tite to seat Vinicius at the premiere in the Copa del World?

The succession of thumbs down (see the video that illustrates this page) is a significant sample of the feeling around the Five-time champion. He does not see it that clearly, however, who must decide, a Tite that he had been shedding the conservative label, especially in this calendar year, and that he is once again flirting with what his fans have considered excessive defensive zeal.

The technician does not like to be associated with labels of this style, although, true to his exemplary character, he fits them. His perspective is to gauge two factors that worry him about Serbia in their proper measure: the system of three centrals with two long lanes and the threat of the Mitrovic and Vlahovic. That is why he contemplates doing without Vinicius, a course in which he would put together a double pivot Fred-Casemiro, with Paquetá, Neymar and Raphinha ahead and Richarlison as a striker center.

Vinicius, untouchable at Real Madrid

While this matter is being resolved, Vinicius works on the pitch and in the gym to convince the coach and stay on top. In Brazil, as at Real Madrid, he also found it difficult to consolidate. But in his club he already enjoys the status of title holder, the one achieved through his own merits: he was second top scorer and top assist in 2021-22 and is top scorer and top assist (tied with Rodrygo) so far in 2022-23.

Tite: “I asked Ancelotti for advice so that Vinicius could play in Brazil as he did in Madrid”

Their white data is indisputable, those of the Seleçao are clearly improvable: one target and no assistance in the 674 minutes spread over his 16 caps. It is a matter of time and trust, they say at Real Madrid. And there is no greater opportunity for its emergence than this World Cup, starting with a Thursday for which Brazil ‘asks’ Tite not to send him to the bench.
