Ah told allyuh earlier Tite move from the Wing Back style everyone copied to 2 Wing Forwards 2 holding middies and 4 Fullbacks. No foraging WingBack to leave holes in the defense. They started a little stoic though but that is to be expected.

Should have been 6 goals. 2 hit the bar and Raphinha threw wet 2 easy ones

Lol.....so who was the goalie? Didn't see him. Tell you what, that defense is a masterpiece but left to be tested further. I prefer them than the attack.

The attack will gel. Raphinha will get over his nerves after his 1st WC game.

An American guy from espn made a really good point. He said so many great Brazil teams from the 1980s probably wished they had a goalie like Alison. I totally agree. Brazil 82 had Waldir Peres, who wasn’t good. I mean, his wingbacks in Junior and Luizinho didn’t help because they were very good defenders who always wanted to get forward, but Waldir wasn’t good. Alison is excellent, up there with horner man Courtois(The De Bruyne’s outside man) and Donarumma from PSG

I hope alyuh right. Not sweet like 82 but that's a hard ask.
