Lining Up of the Brazilian Team for FIFA World Cup 2018

The adjustment of high-profile players on the gaming pitch is a huge task for the head coach. Though experienced and played tremendously well, they need to be adjusted accordingly in an attacking formation of 4-2-3-1.

  • Marcelo is expected to fill the place for a spot of the left back. He has great defensive and attacking skills.
  • Dani Alves to be placed on the right flank side in the formation.
  • Thiago Silva will hold a center-back spot in the formation because of his physical strength and technical skills on the ground.
  • Other central defenders who can fill the spot are Miranda and Marquinhos.

Overall, the squad announcement still awaits the involvement of eight other players, but Tite is going to form a strong team in order to grab this year FIFA World Cup too.
