After physical training on Monday, the first day of the current FIFA dateThe Brazilian Team held this Tuesday the first activities with a ball under the command of Fernando Dinizin preparation for the duel with Colombia, scheduled for 9 pm on Thursday, in the fifth round of the Qualifiers from the world Cup. The Libertadores champion coach with Fluminense chose André in the place that is usually occupied by Casemiro, absent due to injury. In attack, without the also injured Neymar, they tested an offensive quartet formed by Raphinha, Vinícius Júnior, Rodrygo and Martinelli.
There were many changes compared to the team that lost 2-0 to Uruguay, in the previous round of the Qualifiers, last month. The changes begin with Alisson’s return to goal, as Ederson was cut due to injury. The defense duo is the same, with Gabriel Magalhães and Marquinhos, but the sides have changed, as the players selected were Emerson Royal on the right and Renan Lodi on the left. Against the Uruguayans, Yan Couto, out of the squad this time, and Carlos Augusto played.
Ahead of the midfielder duo André and Bruno Guimarães, Diniz arranged the attack with Raphinha open on the right and Martinelli on the left, while Vini Jr. and Rodyrgo played inside, as they do at Real Madrid. The composition varied at times, but remained that way for most of the short time the training was open to the press. The lineup had Alisson; Emerson Royal, Marquinhos, Gabriel Magalhães and Renan Lodi; André and Bruno Guimarães; Raphinha, Vini Jr, Rodrygo and Martinelli.
During the final activity, an 11 against 11 confrontation, the reserves found the net in a move coordinated by players who play in Brazilian football. Paulinho, from Atlético-MG, was the scorer of the goal after a plot involving Raphael Veiga and his Palmeiras teammate Endrick, the main subject of this FIFA Data because he is the youngest called up by Brazil since Ronaldo in 1994 and, mainly, due to the excellent performances what he has done for Palmeiras.
Gabriel Jesus, who was called up even though he was recovering from an injury, did not participate in the activity, but went to the field and kicked some balls at the goal in the early part of training. The technical committee’s expectation is that he will be available for the game against Argentina, on the 21st, at 9:30 pm, at Maracanã.
