Casagrande gave his opinion on Neymar’s participation in the Qatar World Cup and on how he can go to the final of the competition together with the Brazil team.
Casão made some suggestions for the PSG star to stand out in the competition. According to him, Tite’s team still has a lot of dependence on shirt 10.
“Let’s be honest, the team played about three good games after winning the 2019 Copa America. I still think it’s a team very dependent on Neymar, whoever gets the ball already looks for Neymar to play, which makes it much easier to mark . If you start putting in other players, like Vini Jr., Raphinha, Rodrygo and Antony, I think the path to the final is possible. They can play very well collectively and make Neymar join that team,” he said in an interview on the “Flow Sport Club” podcast.

The commentator also evaluated the chances of the Brazilian team winning the sixth. For him, Brazil does not arrive in the competition among the favorites. In addition, Casagrande questioned the lack of friendlies with European teams.
“I understand there’s the Nations League, the Qualifiers and the Euro Cup, but can’t you go after two friendlies in four years? I even believe that the European teams don’t want to play with Brazil, but Brazil didn’t make an effort either”, added Casagrande.
“You can even say that Europeans don’t play against South Americans either, but it’s impossible to win the World Cup without facing a European team, because they are the majority. Now, they might as well win without having to play a South American. There are four teams from South America, with Ecuador still having a chance of falling in the group stage, and they have a shitload of Europeans”, he concluded.
