Brazil’s opponent in the round of 16 will be Iran. It is a team considered dangerous for at least eight years, but has not been able to fight for the podium in the main events. In this World Cup, they beat Argentina 3-2 in the most exciting game of the tournament so far, lost to Holland 3-1 and passed Egypt, also 3-1. They are a strong team, but still fickle.

It wouldn’t be the “ideal” opponent for a round of 16 game. Other teams, like Tunisia and Germany, would probably present Brazil with fewer problems. But it’s not all bad. It’s a game that Brazil has everything to advance, despite the care that the defense will have to take with Ebadipour and Esmaielnezhad, two of the most efficient (and most activated) attackers in the competition.

In a hypothetical quarter-final round, the opponent would be Argentina or Serbia. Either team will be a tough match. Argentina, more because it knows Brazil very well (it even won our team in the bronze medal at the Olympics) than because of the volleyball it has been playing in the competition. Serbs are running out. Nobody looked at them much before the Worlds, but the team had a perfect first phase, without losing sets to Ukraine, Puerto Rico and Tunisia. He took the weaker group and “passed the car”.

Is Brazil favorite for the title? Not. Can Brazil be champion? Of course it is, and that’s the crowd. The team showed evolution from the beginning of the first game, against Cuba, to the end of the game against Qatar. Mainly with the entry of Cachopa in the place of Bruno and with the great performance of central Flavio. But it needs to improve to go further in the competition. Mainly the serve and reception, in addition to taking advantage of the attacking trio (one of the best in the world) Leal-Wallace-Lucarelli.
