Four years later, Brazil found Serbia on their way to the World Cup. And as in Russia, the Auriverdes won 2-0, thanks to a magnificent double from Richarlison. However, the Seleção players did not have a perfect evening. Out on injury ten minutes from time, Neymar must pray that his ankle has not suffered too much.
But yesterday, some Brazilians were pissed off for another reason: Serbian coach Dragan Stojkovic’s pre-match statements. Asked about the probable very offensive composition of the Seleção, the latter had titillated the Auriverdes defenders by wondering who was going to be able to defend in this attacking team. Proposals that have no more at all to Thiago Silva.
Thiago Silva did not appreciate
“We are always happy when we win 1-0, 2-0. Our joy means that we defenders do not suffer. I don’t like to talk a lot, to create controversy, but their coach said: “They are going to play with four forwards, but who are they putting behind? ” It’s a lack of respect. On don’t ask anyone to be afraid of us. Just a little respect. If he had considered our team, he would have seen that we concede few goals, regardless of whether we play with three or four attackers.he said on Globoesportebefore continuing.
“Today, everything is working out for us. You open Instagram and everything is on the front page. I don’t like to talk too much about our opponents, because we have a lot of respect for each of them. But I think he didn’t respect us, especially the defensive sector. I think he knows who Marquinhos, Danilo, Alex Sandro, Thiago Silva are. We tried to neutralize their movements, they had no real chance of scoring. I hope next times he can study our team a little better and have a little more respect in his statement. » Dragan Stojkovic is dressed for the winter.
