In a bid to jack up the morale of the team in readiness for the upcoming match against Brazil in the current World Cup qualifiers, players on the Brazil national team have said that they have no fear of sensational Barca and Argentinian striker, Lionel Messi.

Brazil would be meeting Argentina for their World Cup qualifier match this Thursday, and Messi who recently returned from injury, will be featuring in the high profile game.

Brazil trains ahead of game

Brazil has been training ahead of their World Cup qualifier against Bolivia.

This will be an opportunity for the Brazil team to cement their second place in the qualifying table. After a difficult start to the qualifiers, Brazil has successfully recovered and now looks like genuine contenders to make it to the World Cup finals.


Brazil national team coach Tite is weary of Willian’s performance in international games, hence he is reportedly willing to axe the Chelsea play maker for Reds star Philippe Coutinho.

The Sun report that Tite would drop the Chelsea player for Liverpool’s Coutinho when Brazil play in the World Cup qualifiers this week.

Tite is the right man

Former Brazil defender Lucio has stated that Tite is the right man to lead Brazil unto the next World Cup.

He believes that the manager is experienced enough and has the necessary charisma to lead a team such as Brazil. Lucio believes that Tite has made the right move to stripe Neymar from the captaincy, and that will be able to free the player.

Neymar is a major hope for the Brazilian national team

Barcelona superstar Neymar is a major hope for the Brazilian national team at the Rio 2016 Olympic tournament.

After having missed out on Olympic gold in previous years, Brazil are searching for the only title that has eluded their cabinet so far. On paper, the Brazil national team coming into the tournament is certainly not the strongest but it has one major positive in the form of Neymar. The Barcelona striker has been included as part of the three overage players allowed in the squad. However, national team boss Tite claims that it is not right to expect everything from the 24-year-old alone.


The police in Brazil has arrested a total of seven persons involved in match fixing in at least two state leagues, according to reports.


Brazil have confirmed the appointment of former Corinthians manager Tite as the new manager. The national team recently parted company with manager Dunga following a shock exit from the Copa America at the group stages.

Neymar may be Suspended after Poor Performance in National Team

Dunga has dismissed claims that superstar Neymar has had to face a suspension due to his role as captain calling him to be involved in numerous duels.

Neymar is regarded as one of the best strikers in the world, but he has been unable to make much impact for the national team of late.


The press in Brazil is after Dunga’s head and wants him to be thrown out as coach of the national side without delay.

Joining in, some of the legends of the country’s football have also been lambasting him for his dictatorship, accusing him of taking the joy out of the players they once had while representing the nation.

Dunga has criticised the attitude of Marcelo

Brazil national team boss Dunga has criticised the attitude of Real Madrid defender Marcelo, who has favoured playing for his club Real Madrid rather than the national team.

During the recent World Cup 2018 qualifying games against Uruguay and Paraguay, Marcelo was unavailable for selection. However, he was available for Real Madrid and it has led to a lot of debate about the future of the defender at international level. It has also started a war of words between the two camps with Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane claiming that Brazil were a lot of lies.
