Betting on the quality of his players at the front, coach Tite assembled an offensive quintet (made up of Paquetá, Neymar, Raphinha, Richarlison and Vinícius Júnior), which moved a lot, creating numerous opportunities, especially in the initial stage.
In this formation, Neymar acted as an authentic number 10, articulating the main offensive moves and leaving his teammates in good condition to score. Who most benefited from the creativity of the PSG player (France) was shirt 9 Richarlison, who ended up as the top scorer of the match with two goals.
However, the victory began to be built by defender Marquinhos, who scored with a header in the 8th minute after a corner kick by Raphinha.
Even with the advantage, coach Tite’s team continued to look for the goal, and managed to extend their advantage in the 27th minute, when Neymar received it in the middle and put the ball to Richarlison, who, from inside the area, hit first to score a great goal. .
The second goal for shirt 9, Brazil’s third, came in the 39th minute. Neymar lifted the ball in the area in a free-kick and Richarlison got ahead to score with a header.
In the final stage Tite makes some experiments, such as the entries of defender Bremer, midfielder Fabinho and forwards Antony and Matheus Cunha. Even with the changes, the selection remained better against an opponent that was clearly technically inferior (who arrived with danger only in the 11th minute of the final stage with a header on the crossbar by André Ayew), but the score remained unchanged until the end.
After the game against Ghana, Brazil returns to the field, starting at 15:30 (Brasília time) next Tuesday (27), when it meets Tunisia, in the Parc des Princes, in Paris.
