In 4 years, how did the Brazil national team become the "king of fun"?


Pure fun presented by the Brazil national team in its fourth match in the 2022 World Cup, when it defeated South Korea with 4, amid endless football shows.


The Brazilian national team made a wonderful performance against South Korea in the round of 16 of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, after defeating its Asian rival, 4-1, to resume the campaign to regain its historic title in the competition, by reaching the quarter-finals to meet Croatia.


Brazil needed only 36 minutes of the first half to qualify for the quarter-finals, while it was content with showing off in the second half, which saw the participation of many substitute players.


Since the announcement of the Brazil list, which ranks first in the FIFA rankings, all expectations were in favor of the "Samba" team to win the World Cup title, which was already proven by the technical director Titi's battalion during the first half of its journey towards winning the sixth title, and the first after an absence of 20 years.

In 4 years, how did the Brazil national team become the "king of fun"?

Setback 2018


Returning to the 2018 World Cup competitions in Russia, the Brazilian national team, with its current coach Tite, bid farewell to the championship with a surprising defeat at the hands of the Belgium national team, 1-2, and he did not perform the expected performance from him, and although the fans were accustomed to presenting him with the brightest and best stars on the field, he appeared as a team. meager.


The elimination of Brazil from the quarter-finals of the tournament came as a shock to the Seleção fans, especially since the historic World Cup champion had bid farewell to the previous edition in 2014 at home with a humiliating defeat at the hands of Germany, 7-1, in the semi-finals.


Also, in the 2006 and 2010 versions, the 2002 World Cup champion bid farewell to the two tournaments from the quarter-finals at the hands of France 0-1, then the Netherlands 1-2, for the masses to describe what the Brazilian national team went through as a setback, especially after it reached the final match of the World Cup 3 times in a row. In 1994, 1998 and 2002, he won the title on two of them.

The turning point


The Brazilian national team did not give up, despite the state of frustration that afflicted it after the fourth consecutive elimination from the advanced elimination rounds of the World Cup competitions 4 years ago, and headed to the Copa America in the following year 2019 in an attempt to regain its prestige again.


And Brazil appeared in a completely different performance in the tournament that it hosted on its soil, as it beat Bolivia 3-0 and Peru 5-0 in the group stage, before eliminating Paraguay from the quarter-finals and then overthrowing the arch-rivals Argentina from the semi-finals with a clean double, to qualify for the final match and win the title at the expense of Peru, with a score of 3-1.


And that tournament restored confidence to the Brazilian national team again, so that its series of positive results would continue until the next edition of the Copa America 2021, and indeed it reached the final match again, but the Maracana stadium did not smile at it this time and lost the title at the hands of Argentina, 0-1.

A different team in 2022


In the 2022 World Cup, it seemed that Tite had already finished his work since taking charge of Brazil in 2016, especially since in the 2018 World Cup in Russia he had only two years to reform the team, as he came to the rescue.


And when Titi had the opportunity to build the team the way he wanted, the Brazilian national team turned into a terrifying team at all levels, and it is enough that in the goalkeeper position only it has the two best goalkeepers in the English Premier League, namely Alisson Becker, Liverpool goalkeeper, and Ederson, Manchester City goalkeeper.


The Brazil list differed completely from the one that appeared in Russia 4 years ago, and now the team includes a fiery attack consisting of Vinicius Junior, Neymar, Richarlison and Rafinha, other than Gabriel Martinelli, Anthony, Rodrigo and Gabriel Jesus, forcing the coach to exclude Roberto Firmino.


And in the middle of the field, Casemiro is present, who was not satisfied with his role in cutting balls and the point of contact between defense and attack, but rather it came to scoring goals, which he did against Switzerland to ensure that Samba qualified for the round of 16.


There is no dispute about the strength and experience of the duo, Thiago Silva, captain of the team, and Marquinhos in the heart of the defense, as they performed exceptionally in the tournament, and contributed to the team’s exit with a clean sheet in the first two matches and not receiving any shots during them.


The Brazilian national team hopes to continue its appearance at this level until it reaches the final match and regains the title that has been absent from its coffers for 20 years, to be the sixth after it achieved it in the 1958, 1962, 1970, 1994 and 2002 versions.
