The 2017 edition of the FIFA Confederations Cup took kicked off on June 17 of the ongoing year and concluded July 2 with Germany becoming the champions for the very 1st time in the history of the national side.
Germany overcame Chile in the finals which took place on July 2nd and a lonely goal from Lars Stindl was enough for the team of Joachim Low to claim the victory.
Brazil has lifted the FIFA Confederations Cup on 4 occasions which is more than any other national side and this is proof of just how dominant the Brazilian national team has been in the past few years.
However, for the first time in over 20 years, Brazil failed to qualify for the latest edition of the FIFA Confederations Cup and now that the international competition is over, the head coach of Brazil, Tite expressed his desire to see his squad perform.
"I would have wanted to play in the tournament because it would have allowed me to have more time to work with the team, to get to know the adversities, the different situations that we will have to face. It would have been important to be here. It's an important competition in its broad context. Brazil’s Tite said.
The 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup could have served as preparation for the upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup which Brazil has already qualified after rampaging through their 14 initial qualifying matches in the CONMEBOL where the Brazilian team claimed 10 victories, 3 draws and only lost 1 game.
Tite is hoping that the Brazilian national side can bounce back from what was a forgettable 2014 FIFA World Cup after Brazil lost 1-7 to Germany in the semi-finals and later on to Netherlands as Brazil had to settle with the 4th place.
