Captain Thiago Silva responded to Serbia’s coach, Dragan Stojkovic, after being questioned about the attack by the Brazilian team Tete. The Canadian team won 2-0, today (24), at the Lusail Stadium, for its first appearance in the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
On the eve of the match, the Serbian coach praised Brazil but wondered if Tite would “go back there” for the four-forward formation: Neymar, Rafinha, Vinny Jr. and Richarlison.
In practice, Brazil won 2-0, creating chances for more goals and goalkeeper Alisson making no significant saves.
“We are always happy when we win, 1-0, 2-0. We are happy because at that moment we did not suffer. I don’t like to talk a lot, cause controversy, but his coach said: Thiago said. ? This is disrespectful. We don’t ask anyone to be afraid of us, but we do have a little respect… Three or four applicants”, said Thiago Silva, before being asked about the use that Tite made of that phrase as motivation.
“Today everything comes. Telephone and social networks, as much as we do not want to be up to date. You open Instagram and it’s right there, on the front page. I don’t like to talk a lot about our rivals, because I have a lot of respect for all of them. But I think not. He respects us, especially the defensive sector. I think he knows who is Marquinhos, Danilo, Alex Sandro, Thiago Silva…”, he said.
“They are football things. We tried to neutralize their movements, they had no clear goal options. Hopefully the next few times I will be able to study our team a little better and earn more respect in their intervention ”, he concluded.
