Gabriel Jesus’ Friend leaks Starting XI
Brazil, the short price favourite to lift the trophy have sprung a leak.
Journalists where today allowed to attend the first 15 minutes of Brazil’s training session.
A chance for them to get an idea of how the team is planning to line up in their first game against Switzerland.
Once the Journalists had been asked to leave the players entourage was allowed to remain on site. It was one of Gabriel Jesus’ men who would make the big mistake. On social media, the Brazil front man’s friend would accidentally release Tite’s starting XI.
How will Brazil shape up
Between the sticks will be Alisson.
Danilo, Thiago Silva, Miranda, and Marcelo will make up a very strong back four.
The men given the task of controlling the middle of the park, Casemiro, and Paulinho.
Philippe Coutinho, Willian, Neymar and Gabriel Jesus come together to form a front line that would strike fear into any defence.
Neymar is the favourite for the Golden Boot in this years competition, and the talent they possess around him is very impressive too. Brazil possess goals throughout the team with Coutinho and Willian very impressive in front of goal. Casemiro gives Brazil what they didn’t have four years ago and that is protection through the core of the team.
Does the leaked team work?
In my opinion, the team Tite will play in the first game is as strong as it gets.
The core of the side is strong and can hold on to the ball, frustrating opposition teams and when it matters they can turn on the flair.
I can see Brazil cruising to a comfortable 4-0 win over the Swiss and really making a statement on the opening week.
