The 'verdeamarela' arrived to the corresponding party to the second day of the phase of groups of the World-wide Glass of Qatar 2022 after defeating to Serbia in his debut in the international appointment, by what a triumph sufficed them to certify his classification to the eighth of final. Like this then , the 'brazucas' did with the three points thanks to a goal of Casemiro after contesting an intelligent crash in which they knew to administer his resources.

Conscious of the importance of the meeting in his aspirations to ensure the first place of the group G, Tite put on the field the best that had to disposal. The absence of Neymar Jr. By injury was a big conditioning, being Fred the footballer that occupied the place of the 'crack' of Paris Saint-Germain in the alignment, with Paquetá exerting of '10'. In this eleven full of stars, Raphinha went back to do charge of the right extreme of the terrain of game, disappointing once again.

The player of the FC Barcelona has the total confidence of his trainer, but his titularity is increasingly in entredicho because of the toneless performance showed in the present edition of the World-wide. In front of the helvéticos, the paulista happened almost unobserved, being cancelled by Ricardo Rodríguez and Ruben Vargas in the right-handed lane. It noticed him imprecise and lacking of solutions to the moment to find surrounded by the rival defenders, although had moments of 'brilliance'.

In this sense, his clearer occasion arrived to the minute 27. In a played that remembered to his best moment in the FC Barcelona, Raphinha desbordó by the right band and stuck to the interior of the field, looking for his best profile to centre. Without mark, the Brazilian crossed a balloon of right to left with destination to Vinícius Jr., the one who finished a half volley bitten that it was cut across by Yan Sommer. After this, little and at all.

Rodrygo Touches the door

In the second half, Raphinha kept the tonic of the done in the first 45 minutes and could not gravitar in the meeting, being substituted to the minute 73 by Antony. Of this way, the attacker goes back to complete a performance that does not fulfil the expectations that has on him and his place in the eleven initial could be occupied by a Rodrygo that went with an assistance in the 'pocket' and with good feelings. It will remain for seeing that it decides Tite.
