Despite not being enchanted by the modest opponent, who was quite lacking after an outbreak of coronaviruses, Brazil had no difficulties to beat winning in the competition’s debut
A Brazilian Team banged on the right foot when hitting the Venezuela by 3 to 0 at the opening of the America Cup, held at Mané Garrincha Stadium, in Brasília, on Sunday night, 13. Despite not showing excellent football in front of the modest opponent, quite understaffed after a coronavirus outbreak, Brazil had no difficulties to beat the rival. Marks, in the first half, opened the scoring for Canarinho, while Neymar e Gabriel Barbosa complement in the final step. Now, the team led by Tite he returns to the field next Thursday, 17, when he measures forces with Peru, in Engenhão, in Rio de Janeiro.
At a slow pace, the Brazilian team was far from enchanting in the first half, showing some indifference at times. Even so, the host team came out ahead with Marquinhos, who took advantage of confusion within the area after a corner kick taken by Neymar, and dodged it to the back of the net. Venezuela, betting on direct calls, even tried to surprise left-back Renan Lodi, but didn’t bother goalkeeper Alisson.
In the second stage, Tite took out midfielder Lucas Paquetá and left-back Renan Lodi for the entries of Everton Ribeiro and Alex Sandro, trying to make the team more offensive. The idea worked, and Brazil started to create more opportunities. In one of them, Gabriel Jesus received in the area and crossed low to Neymar, who stretched and dodged outside, wasting an incredible chance. The shirt 10, however, once again had a golden opportunity. After Danilo suffered a penalty, the ace hit low and in the corner, expanding the score. At 43 minutes, Neymar reappeared after taking the launch and playing for Gabigol, who had just joined, to close the account.
