CAIRO – 17 June 2018: The Brazilian national team, well known as Seleção, is getting ready to start its path to the World Cup title, with their first match against Switzerland scheduled for 8 p.m. at Rostov Arena.
The Brazilian side is returning to the World Cup with a strong squad full of skill and passion to win the title this time, and to avenge Brazilians after their historic 7-1 loss from Germany in the last edition of the World Cup.
Neymar Jr, Paris Saint-Germain’s winger, and the most expensive football player in the world, will be leading the Samba dancers as the world named them, alongside with Coutinho, Barcelona’s young talented winger. They’ll be captained by AC Milan’s former defender, Thiago Silva.
But the game won’t be that easy, for Switzerland possesses high quality players such as Stephan Lictsteiner, Juventus former left back who recently joined Arsenal, Ricardo Rodriguez AC Milan’s full back, Granit Xhaka Arsenal’s midfielder, and Xherdan Shaqiri the star of the Premier League team Stoke City.
