Coach Tite has chosen the 11 starters for the Brazilian team that will face Cameroon later, at 4 pm (Brasília time), for the third and final round of the group stage of the Qatar Cup. If Brazil wins, it will maintain the leadership of group G, with a 100% success rate, and will face South Korea next Monday (5) for the round of 16. The South Koreans advanced this Friday (2) after a 2-1 victory over Portugal, in Group H.

Just as he said yesterday (1st) in a press conference, coach Tite opted to spare players who are usually in the starting line-up in order to observe the athletes who had few opportunities in this edition of the World Cup.
“I can only measure how many athletes I can use in a row with them producing on the field. It’s a high-level opportunity for them to compete. It’s a risk? Yes, but an opportunity to show all their quality”, said the coach.
