The Brazilian team still owes good football. Yesterday, they drew only 0–0 at Barranquilla with Colombia, in a match in which Tite’s team again sinned for lack of intensity. There is nothing to affect virtual qualification for the Qatar World Cup, as Brazil quietly leads the South American qualifiers. The fact of losing 100% success in the 10th game is also not a cause for concern. What is the worry of bad football.
To make matters worse, Neymar, who returned to the team after serving a suspension, remains unwell. He missed almost everything he tried, especially in the second half. It’s bad technically and apparently physically too. On Thursday, in Manaus, Selecao ends this month’s triple round of October, facing Uruguay, at 9:30 p.m., Arena Amazonia.
Neymar serves Ospina with a shot from the edge of the field in the first play. On the 12th minute, he dropped Pacqueta in the goalkeeper’s face, but Shirt 17’s kick was crooked to the left. The Brazilian team failed to give more space to the Colombian midfielders. At the same time, he started forcibly entering from the middle, which was always crowded. Due to this I could not complete the plays.
There was a lack of fairness in Brazil. Still, he had a big chance when Neymar left Fred on the edge of the field facing a goal, but the kick from the wheel was terrible.
After the break, Brazil came back to play the ball a lot, but what grew out was Colombia, who were intimidated by Uribe’s shot from outside the field: Alisson deflected it into the corner. Then, Quintero’s two dangerous finishes – the first of which began with one of the many passing errors made by Neymar.
Rafinha, in the 30th minute, after clearing two opponents, with a shot from outside the area, forced Ospina to stretch the ball all the way to a corner.
Brazil did not have a collective game and still gave room to counterattack. With the teams tired and disorganized, the confrontation was tenuous. At 38, Rafinha crossed over to the right and entered Antony Medina’s back and deflected him, but Ospina made a big save. stay on it
