Júlio César discusses Brazil’s 2014 evolution and the respect they are now receiving
Brazil goalkeeper Júlio César has echoed head coach Luiz Felipe Scolari by insisting Brazil are evolving as a team in the 2014 World Cup.
The hosts’ started the tournament with a disappointing performance, albeit a 3-1 victory over Croatia and followed it up with a stalemate against Mexico.
The Queens Park Rangers stopper believes it is important that Brazil continue to improve with every match they played.
Júlio César told Lancenet: “When I speak of evolution, see the part of an adverse situation that this group has not gone before or during the Confederations Cup.
“And leave behind the scoreboard or get a team that defends well and attacks, the case of Mexico. This is the evolution of behavior departure, but not gambling.”
The Brazil number one went on to explain how teams respect Brazil a lot more than they did 12 months ago prior to the Confederations Cup.
He also discussed how they’ve failed to find the early goal during the 2014 World Cup, like they did last year.
Júlio César added: “Many teams did not respect Brazil as they do today.
“In the Confederations Cup, everything changed. Today, who comes to meet us, respects and defends very well.
“Last year, we got early goals and this facilitated the scheme to fit well. But all technicians saw the Confederations Cup, and now arrive with great respect.”
