Raphinha Retains Starting Position in Brazil as Endrick Impresses

Raphinha maintains its status in the Seleçao. The Barça forward will start in the United States – Brazil (this coming morning at 01:00 AM peninsular time) in the last canarinho test before the debut in the Copa América. In this meeting being held in Orlando, the Brazilian elector, Dorival Juniorwill launch the gala eleven with which they will face the continental tournament that starts on the 20th.

The Blaugrana winger was at risk of losing his position due to the emergence of Endrick. The future ‘9’ of Real Madrid from the month of July scored the goal of the Brazilian victory against Mexico (2-3) on Saturday with a header in the 95th minute after taking advantage of an assist from Vinicius Jr.

The goal unleashed euphoria in Brazil, convinced that the still Palmeiras footballer is running for the title. Endrick was even compared to Pelé, since they are the only two underage players to score in three consecutive games for the senior team. ‘O Rei’ did it between 1957 and 1958, prior to the World Cup in Sweden, while the ‘menino prodigy’ has scored in the Seleçao’s last three friendlies with which he has won two: against England at Wembley (0- 1) and, now, against Mexico (2-3)

Brazilian public opinion joined the trend that Dorival Junior had to start the continental tournament with the ‘merengue’ attacking trio: Rodrygo on the right as he acts with Carlo Ancelotti, Vinicius Jr. on the left and Endrick from ‘9’. In this scenario, the great sacrifice was Raphinha.

In the end, the Brazilian coach has maintained his initial plan and will maintain the type of eleven that he already tested on the FIFA date in March (with the exception of Marquinhos who was absent due to injury). All of these footballers either rested against Mexico, as is the case with Raphinhaor they only played a few minutes in the second half like Lucas Paquetá, João Gomes o Vinicius Jr.

At the start, Brazil will form with Bento in goal; a line of four with Danilo as a right back, with the PSG centre-back duo, Marquinhos y Beraldo, y Wendell from Porto on the left; Bruno Guimaraes y João Gomes will be the double pivot with Lucas Paquetá of ’10’ forming a midfield that operates in the Premier League; and up, Raphinha on the right in its natural position (the same one that Lamine Yamal has ‘stolen’ him at Barça), Vinicius Jr. on the left and Rodrygo of false ‘9’ with freedom of movement.

Endrick o Savinho, who had a superb first half against Mexico in which he assisted on a goal, they will have to wait for their opportunity.
