What if Neymar doesn’t play? See Tite’s options if the number 10 of the Brazilian national team is missing



The striker went off the field with a sprained right ankle in the win against Serbia and is worried about the duel against Switzerland next Monday, for the second leg of Group G

The star player of the Brazilian national team striker Neymar caused concern when he left the game against Serbia last Thursday with right ankle pain๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ท The number 10 suffered a sprain on the spot and is still in doubt for the duel against Switzerland next Monday for the second leg of the group stage world Cup๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ท

After departure, Rodrigo Lasmar, doctor of the Brazilian national team, explained the situation of Neymarand the technician Tite also said the Paris Saint-Germain player is not a concern๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ท The athlete, however, will remain under observation in the next few days.

But if Neymar is unable to take on the Swiss, how will Tite arm his team for the next match? Which is TO THROW! subsequent shows.

When the number 10 was replaced, his place was taken by forward Antony. This option, however, shouldn’t be on the manager’s mind, as the Manchester United athlete works on the sidelines. In the substitution, even Rodrygo was moved to the center to fill the role of midfielder.

The Real Madrid player, who usually plays on the flanks, knows how to play in the centre. In training in Turin, in one of the training sessions whose formation Tite outlined, the commander of Canarinho’s team put Rayo precisely as a “reserve” for Neymar. At the Meringue club, in the absence of Karim Benzema, Rodrygo also played centrally.

The second option for manager Tite is the introduction of midfielder Fred. In this configuration, Lucas Paquetรก would play more advanced, in the role of Neymar, acting closer to goal. Fred, incidentally, had to start the game. The Manchester United player battled Vini Jr for the title.

Tite, on the other hand, opted for a more offensive team and chose Real Madrid’s number 20. The gamble was justified, as Vini participated in both Richarlison’s goals. In the first, the attacker finished for Pombo to take the rebound. In the second half, the former Flamengo gave a wonderful assist with a trivela for the number 9 which he scored on the fly.

Tite’s third and last alternative, and also the most unlikely, is Everton Ribeiro. The 33-year-old was called up again by Tite after the season finale at Flamengo and can play as a centre-back.

The Rossoneri player ended the year on a high note with Copa do Brasil and Libertadores, where he was the protagonist of the finals of both competitions, but is behind in the race with his teammates. On the Fifa Date in September, the number 22 came on for a friendly match against Ghana in the second half, but did not leave the bench against Tunisia.
