◼️ Brazil won 3-0 after a lackluster first half. Without the injured Neymar, Tite’s team suffered more than necessary to find their way to the goal.
Brazil had enough time to resolve the friendly match against Russia at the Luzhniki stadium in Moscow. After a loose first half, in which the absence of the injured Neymar was felt, the Canarinha uncovered and ended up beating 3-0 to the host of the next World Cup.
Without Neymar in the field, due to a surgery that will prevent him from playing until May (he will arrive just before the World Cup that starts on June 14), Tite’s team didn’t find the necessary spaces to disturb the goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev.
But the anxiety and poor precision shown in the first time disappeared in the complement. Miranda, at 53 ‘, took advantage of a rebound left by the Russian goalkeeper after a shot by Thiago Silva and opened the scoring in favor of Canarinha.
From there, the doors were opened wide to Brazil. At 62 ‘, Coutinho extended the advantage, and, just four minutes later, Paulinho sealed the lead after a great action by Willian on the right wing.
In this way, Brazil feeds a little more the illusion of a whole country that dreams of the sixth world title. Next Tuesday, the Canarinha will have another tough test: this time against the world champion, Germany.
