Brazil insists on its open war with the Premier League. And, after the boycott of English clubs in September’s triple matchday, Tite, with the support of the CBF, continues to call on its internationals operating in the British Isles. On this occasion, there have been eight players.
The Seleçao faces three consecutive World Cup qualification matches: on Thursday October 7 against Venezuela (in Caracas), on October 10 against Colombia (in Barranquilla) and on Thursday 14 the classic of the maximum against Uruguay (scheduled at the Arena da Amazonia stadium, in Manaus).
The coordinator of the Seleçao, the former player Juninho Paulista, explained the reasons for the call-up of the players who are in England: “Contacts are being made between the English government, FIFA and the Premier League clubs and we hope that next week there will be a resolution. For this reason, we have chosen to call all these players.”, he indicated.
In the list of Tite the presence of the ex-blaugrana is striking Emerson Royal, now at Tottenham, who enters in place of Dani Alves, who this Friday would have to close with a new Brazilian club after his goodbye to Sao Paulo.
Brazil dominates with authority in the South American qualifying group for the World Cup in Qatar. His streak is historic with eight victories in the first eight days. It is a full to 24, with six points of advantage over Argentina of Leo Messi and a cushion of 11 on Colombia, which is currently in the playoff spot. The Seleçao is virtually qualified for the World Cup.
