Coach Tite’s Brazilian team has 12 players who play in the Premier League. The current most valuable league in the world is responsible for leading the number of athletes participating in the World Cup: of the 830 players participating in the world cup, 155 play in the English league.
For Rivaldo, the Premier League is fundamental for the selection’s competitiveness.

“It is the most difficult championship today. These Brazilian players who play there are used to the high level of competitiveness. That’s why Tite kept an eye on English football for the World Cup, as he knows they will be able to contribute a lot to the technical quality of his team in a short-range championship.”

Ronaldo highlighted the importance of this number of athletes in the group: “In the 2018 World Cup, the Brazilian team had six players competing in the Premier League. For this world championship we have twelve athletes at the highest level. We doubled the number of athletes in the championship and this demonstrates the strength of the English championship today, with a very large financial power, taking the best players to the biggest football competition in the world today.”

Ronaldo Nazário also praised the good moment that some of the main players of the Selection live in England in the current season. “It’s good because the Brazilians who are playing in the Premier League are also standing out against their teams, like Gabriel Jesus, Richarlison, Antony”, concludes Ronaldo in an interview with Betfair.
