Brazil Deserved Their Victory Over Argentina, Insists Tite
Brazil boss Tite says that his side were deserved winners against Argentina in Riyadh, after João Miranda’s 92 nd minute header gave them a 1-0 victory in the Superclasico after a tightly contested game.
Tite experimented with Gabriel Jesus on the right of a front 3, with Roberto Firmino upfront. “One thing is the theory, another is the practice. It is a different proposition to face Argentina. Today we deserved to win.
“When the team gets the ball and provokes the game they deserve to win. Often Argentina delayed the game. They alternated the counterattacks with their front men. But we played well and created opportunities to score.”
Tite insists picking his squad for next year’s Copa América will give him some good headaches, “It is difficult to assemble the team. If you watched the last games, you have 13 Cup players.
“We will look at players who have not yet had opportunities to be here. There are players who are and have been to the World Cup and I want to bring them too. I cannot quantify that, I want to give them opportunities.”
