Tite Admits Brazil Among World Cup Favourites with Belgium
Brazil boss Tite admits that the Seleção will be amongst the favourites for next summer’s World Cup in Russia, but he also believes that Belgium should be considered one of the teams most likely to take football’s biggest prize.
Brazil have already qualified in first place in the CONMEBOL rankings, with qualifiers against Bolivia and Chile ahead next week. The highly rated coach says Brazil will be considered one of the most dangerous sides.
“Brazil is one of the favourites, yes. Because of our history and because of the way we have performed. As well of this, because of the way the current squad is playing, they deserve to be among the favourites.”
However, Tite also earmarked Belgium as potential winners in Russia, “Germany are very strong, France, Italy are always in contention. But I like Belgium, they have lots of individual talent. They have lots of quality, I cannot remember a generation better than this.”
