Brazil entered the queue to play the World Cup as favorites. The five-time world champions also get off to a flying start. The Latin American country secured the second round by dominating Serbia and Switzerland in their first two matches. But the flying Brazil was brought down by a much weaker Cameroon.
Brazil coach Tite conducted a big test in the regulation match on Friday night. He dropped the players on the reserve bench against Cameroon. But that caught the weakness of Selesaurad. They could not score any goal, on the contrary, they scored a goal at the last minute. Brazil lost with Vincent Abubakar’s goal.
Of course, Martinelli, Anthony also created few chances. They did not find only the address of the opponent’s network. On the other hand, Abubakar became the hero of the match by scoring a last-minute header. But the forward had to leave the field after seeing a red card as a result of a double yellow card for opening his jersey in celebration of the goal.
With that match aside, Brazil’s eyes are now on the second round. Where they will face the Asian giants South Korea. Tite, Thiago Silva will be busy planning for that match. On the night of Brazil’s loss, Son’s side secured a place in the second round with a win against Portugal.
With this, no team could get a full 9 points in the Qatar World Cup. After a dramatic first round, all the equations, predictions have been turned upside down. It remains to be seen what will happen in the second round. However, Brazil, coming to the Hexa (sixth World Cup title) mission, will want to proceed cautiously this time.
