He added: “We have some of the players who get the most media attention in the world, so we take it naturally, it’s our dream to win a world. The pressure is inevitable.”
Brazil won the World Cup a record five times and Tite said it is not his responsibility that the team has not won the tournament in 20 years. He added that he can only answer for the last four years, his only full cycle since he Brazil lost to Belgium in the Russia 2018 quarterfinals.
“In Russia we only had two years to fix the team and I came to the rescue. Now it’s different because I had the chance to build the team the way I wanted,” he said.
Along those lines, he continued: “That’s why my feeling today is completely different from four years ago. I’m not so nervous because all the work is done.”.
Tite did not reveal the team that will put in the debut in Qatar. His defensive coaching characterization causes a lot of speculation about his choice for the match against Serbia, with the biggest question mark surrounding Vinicius Jr.
The 22-year-old scored the game-winning goal for the real Madrid in the end of the Champions League against Liverpool and was eighth in the Ballon d’Or last month, which elevated him to world level in his fifth season with the LaLiga team.
“Vinicius He is one of the forward players who have established themselves playing at the highest level with their clubs. They have been the ones who have been summoned. Now it is my job to fit them into my scheme”, closed the DT.
