No team wants to meet Brazil in a World Cup for logical reasons: in addition to being the country with the most World Cups in its showcases (5), the Verdeamarela is a machine for taking out deluxe players. In fact, he arrived in Qatar with a team molded to his black palate, combining experience (Marquinhos, Thiago Silva and even Dani Alves), talent (Neymar) and youngsters who are no longer promises but a reality like Richarlison, Vinicius Jr., Raphinha , Antony… If not, ask Serbia, who in their debut suffered a 0-2 draw that fell short, even with Ney having to leave due to injury. And precisely speaking of the group stage, it can be inferred that Brazil is not a group.

Richarlison opened the account for Brazil

Although there was some fear in the neighboring country that there could be another bump in Qatar knowing the blows that the Argentine and German national teams gave each other, the reality is that history marks a more than favorable trend for Brazil as far as regarding his production in the group stage of the World Cups. To the point that he is undefeated in this century! As it reads: Verdeamarela did not lose a game in this 21st century in the first phase of the World Cups.

Great goal by Richarlison for the 2 to 0 of Brazil

With this Thursday’s victory against Serbia, in its debut in Qatar, those from Tite already they accumulate 18 games without defeats in the group stage. And not only that: he won 15 of those games… A brutal statistic that allows us to understand why everyone prefers to avoid this team that, although it has been almost 20 years without being able to win the sixth Cup that he so desires, is always a tough nut to crack.

Ney’s Party

To find the last loss in the first round of a World Cup, you have to go to France 1998, where although he was the leader of Group A and passed the phase (in fact, he reached the final in which he lost to the host), he kissed the canvas in the last date in front of… Norway. At that time, Brazil was led by Zagallo and had another extraordinary team. (Ronaldo, Bebeto, Taffarel, Dunga, Cafu, Rivaldo, Roberto Carlos…) and after having previously beaten Scotland (2-1) and Morocco (3-0) closed the group with a 1-2 loss against the Norwegians, who were 2nd.

Since then, the walk of the Verdeamarela at the beginning of the World Cups (they played them all) was overwhelming. In Korea-Japan 2002 and Germany 2006 he won all three games, while in South Africa 2010, Brazil 2014 and Russia 2018 he won two and drew one, respectively. And although in Qatar he still has two games to play (Switzerland, on Monday 11/28, and Cameroon on Friday 12/2) in which he could end this tremendous streak, the truth is that in his debut he left no doubts: he beat him well to Serbia and made it clear that he wants to go for everything. They have plenty of reasons to dream…

Neymar, the concern that left the triumphant debut

Happiness was not complete in the team led by Tite, and that was due to the injury suffered by Neymar at 35′ from ST. The PSG star had to request the change due to a foul that he received on his right ankle and that -after being evaluated by the doctors- it was determined that it led to a “twisting”. For example, Ney left the stadium limping and with the area visibly inflamed, to the point that he will be evaluated in the next 24 hours to see his evolution. Everything indicates that he would not only miss Monday’s crossing with Switzerland but also the closing of the group vs. Cameroon.

Concern for Ney

“He had a little swelling in his ankle, we started the bench ice treatment and now he has followed the physical therapy treatment. There is no imaging exam scheduled. If there is a need, we will do it. The expectation is the observation. Any talk of evolution, its sequel, is premature. We don’t have answers right now and it’s important to wait.”, explained the doctor from Brazil, Rodrigo Lasmar, at a press conference. To be attentive…
