FIFA World Cup 2018: Brazil Coach Tite leaves a significant statement on Neymar
Internet Desk: The Samba boys are gearing up for their most happy hunting competition, the FIFA World Cup. The present coach Tite has done a remarkable job ever since he took the charge of the Brazilian national team. Their significant victory over Germany a day back, had been a huge confidence booster ahead of their trip to Russia. But the boss is getting more and more confident as the likes of Coutinho, Jesus and Willian are showing promises that they are no more over-dependent on Neymar.
Brazil coach Tite has heaped praise on his side for learning how to win against strong opposition without their injured star Neymar. The Paris Saint-Germain forward has been forced to miss Brazil’s friendlies over the international break as he continues his recovery from a fractured metatarsal sustained in February. In Neymar’s absence, Tite’s Brazil side defeated World Cup hosts Russia 3-0 last week before recording a 1-0 triumph over Germany on Tuesday to gain a small measure of revenge for that 7-1 humbling they received in the semi-finals of the 2014 World Cup.
The Brazil boss described Neymar as ‘irreplaceable’ in the build-up to their friendlies but was left delighted by the way his side performed over the two games without the talisman. “Our best player was out,” he said. “The team missed Neymar, but we are learning to play and be strong without him.” ‘This all helps to generate team strength.’
