Brazil certified in the morning of this Friday his pass to the World-wide of Qatar of 2022 with an adjusted victory on Colombia (1-0). Lucas Paquetá gave him the triumph to the Brazilians with a so much in the second part in which it took part of decisive form Neymar Jr. The target of the mediapunta of the Olympique of Lyon was sufficient so that the ones of Tite carried the three points that have classified them for the appointment mundialista of the next year.
To the 'canarinha', however, cost him a lot win to the Colombians and did not go until the second time when they began to generate true feeling of danger. The improvement of Brazil coincided with the entrance to the field of Vinicius Jr, that went out in the rest by Fred. The madridista agitated the meeting and achieved that his team approached more to the rival area. At the end, the quality of Neymar in the pass imposed and the '10' assisted to Paquetá, that with the collaboration of Ospina annotated the so much of the victory.
It expected that after the so much of the player of the Lyon, Tite gave gone in to Philippe Coutinho, to the that there was elogiado in press conference. Nevertheless, the seleccionador preferred to bet by a midfield player of a more defensive profile and took out to Fabinho, that planted beside Casemiro in the double pivote in the last minutes of the party. The '14' of the FC Barcelona, therefore, remained without playing in which it went his first crash with Brazil in a year.
The technician of the 'canarinha' ensured in the previous of the duel against Colombia that his intention was to take out the best of Cou. "The Coutinho of today is not the best Coutinho, but is a big Coutinho. Has a big projection, go to help to rescue what went in the Liverpool. We have to restart the process of the big footballer that is", commented. Thus, it took for granted that it went him to give minutes in front of the 'cafeteros', but finally has not been like this.
Coutinho Could have minutes against Argentina
The next party of Brazil will be on 17 November against Argentina in a 'Classical' in which the Brazilians no longer will play at all more than the honour. It can that therefore Tite decide to give him an opportunity to Coutinho, that has difficult to be headline, but that yes could go out in the second time. In case that it bet by him, from Barcelona will have an eye put in the meeting, since with the arrival of Xavi Hernández still there is the one who believes in recovering the best version of the of Rio de Janeiro.
