Tite Laments Lack of European Opposition for Friendlies
Brazil coach Tite has lamented the new arrangements for European international fixtures, making it harder for the Selecao to arrange matches against top quality European opposition.
Brazil again face CONMEBOL colleagues Colombia and Peru during this round of friendlies and the Brazil boss admits he would prefer to have more games against UEFA sides.
Now UEFA has changed its calendar with the Nations League, there is less room for friendlies for European sides.
“It would be better [to play UEFA sides],” he admitted. “I had this conversation with Juninho Paulista [Brazil Technical Director. We have a problem with the calendar.
“Sometimes it is incompatible. But we are playing a team that exited Copa America without conceding a goal and another who qualified for the final. These are important teams.
