Counting on a series of stars for the sides of the field, Tite still has an important doubt before the World Cup. At the moment, the number 9 of Brazil in Qatar is undefined, as no striker, in fact, has established himself as the team’s top scorer. Therefore, in an interview with ESPN, the coach reported that he would like to cast one of the best strikers in the world in his team.
Although he could choose names like Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo, Tite chose Benzema as the name of another country that he would use in the Brazilian team. Essential in Real Madrid’s victory in the Champions League, the Frenchman was also named the best player in the world today.
“A player of another team that I would like to be Brazilian: Benzema”said.
“Today? From this phase, Benzema (is the best in the world)”he added.

Without Benzema, Tite can resort to a name that is standing out in Brazil. On the rise at Flamengo, Pedro could win an opportunity before the final call-up and be included among the coach’s 26 chosen for the World Cup
“He has a unique characteristic, a player 9 in a team who plays low, who has heading power. When a team plays very low, you have some alternatives to break through this block, and infiltration becomes very difficult. Mid-range submission is important, crossing from the sides is also important. A player who makes a wall, because he won’t have space to attack, he has this condition. He will follow the midfielder’s intelligent reasoning and he has that ability”reported the national team coach.
Tite’s future after leaving Brazil
After leaving the selection, Tite has an indefinite future. Although he is focused on the World Cup, the coach has admitted interest in playing in two major leagues in Europe. Recently, he was speculated at Arsenal, but the scenario has already been denied by the professional himself.
“Italy and Spain“, reported as the preferred places of work.
