Fluminense, current champion of the Libertadores, will compete in the FIFA Club World Cup 2023. Regarding the signings for the tournament, the president of Fluminense, Mário Bittencourt, spoke in an interview with the “Charla podcast” about the assembly of the tricolor squad:
– I think it’s very high, and most of the players we monitor for 2024 have contracts until the end of the year. I’m not going to deceive the fans, I think we shouldn’t bring any player to the World Cup. Let’s think about reinforcing in January for the Recopa Sul-americana (against LDU, in February 2024) – said the leader.
It is worth making it clear that Fluzão’s opponent is not defined. The team classified as the champion of the host country, Al-Ittihad, from Saudi Arabia – made up of Benzema and Kanté – will face Auckland City, from New Zealand, who won the Oceania Champions League.
Flu’s first match will be held on December 18th, at 3pm Brasília time, at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium. If Team de Guerreiros wins, they will be able to face Manchester City (ING), Pep Guardiola’s team and current winner of the UEFA Champions League. The final and third place match will be played on December 22nd.
