Brazil seeks to pay off the debt of the last World Cups

B.Brazil is looking to pay off the pending debt from the last World Cups and, at the start, in Qatar 2022 it will not be easy in Group G, where Switzerland, Serbia and Cameroon are waiting for them.

Those guided by Tite start once again as candidates for the title, following the path they have taken to Qatar, with solid tactical football that retains part of the ‘beautiful game’ of yesteryear, mainly thanks to Neymar, who is looking for his third appearance World Cup winner.

From the beginning, the five-time world champions will have to face two strong European teams, such as Switzerland and Serbia, who have arguments; and against Cameroon, another African team accustomed to the World Cups.

Brazil will arrive in Qatar at a very good time, after dominating the South American Qualifiers and with a squad that is already mature to make the leap in quality.

Neymar is also in brilliant condition and confirms it with PSG, but the five-time champions will have to keep their feet on the ground to pave the way.

In the last Copa América, Brazil received a heavy blow when they fell in the final against Argentina, but they have continued to lead with the likes of Alisson, Danilo, Marquinhos, Lucas Paquetá, Casemiro, Raphinha, Neymar and Vinicius Jr.

Switzerland, regular competitor

Switzerland participated in the last four World Cups and in three of them they reached the round of 16.

With defensive security as its central axis, the ‘Helvetic’ cast has gained space in world football and has already shown it in the European Qualifiers, where they dominated an area in which Italy started as favorites.

Seeks to regain prominence

Since Roger Milla led that team that reached the quarterfinals of Italy 1990, Cameroon has not been able to shine, beyond the fact that it usually appears at the World Cups and in Africa it is also a constant entertainer.

He did not attend Russia 2018 and between South Africa 2010 and Brazil 2014 he has not garnered points, an aspect that he will try to overcome so as not to become the Cinderella of a very competitive group, where Brazil, Switzerland and Serbia, a priori, would compete for the two places for the round of 16.
