Tomorrow, Thursday, the tournament begins men’s football of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. Brazil is one of the big favorites to gold and this could be your XI type:
The goal should be for Santos. He is a 31-year-old veteran goalkeeper, chosen within the quota of those over 23. He plays for Athlético Paranaense in his country’s league.
At 38 years old, he is one of the surprises and sensations of the Brazilian team at these Olympic Games. Dani Alves is the most awarded player in the history of football and is rushing his last years at Sao Paulo. They will be their first Games
The third place for a person over 23 is Diego Carlos. A player who in recent years has proven to be a category center-back. The most important clubs in the world want it, although at the moment it is well in Seville. It will be his international debut
The other central position is for Nino. He is a player of 24 years just turned 24, quite tall and physically powerful. He plays for Fluminense and covers the absence of Gabriel, who a priori was going to be the one called up for this tournament.
The left side should be for Arana. He is a player we already know from our league, as he has played for Sevilla. He still belongs to the Seville club, but is currently on loan to Atlético Mineiro. He is a very offensive footballer, like Brazilian full-backs in general
In January of last year he made the leap to Europe and signed for Olympique de Lyon. He is the captain of the seleçao and will act as the brain of the team. He is one of the players to take into account in the center of the field and in the tournament.
This is the position where I have the most doubts. A priori Menino could enter to give more balance to the center of the field. He is still only 20 years old and is one of the most interesting pearls of the future in the whole of Brasileirao. Play as a midfielder at Palmeiras
In the trio of midfielders one of the sides will almost certainly be for Malcom. He is another player we know from the Spanish league, since he spent a year at Barcelona. The normal thing is that it plays to leg changed by the right band. Now miso is a Zenit footballer
Cunha can act almost in any position of the attack. A priori he should start as second striker, in the position of attacking midfielder so classic that he is losing more and more. Milita at the Hertha Berlin
We are talking about the youngest player in the entire Brazilian expedition. Martinelli is the only one born in 2001 and has just turned 20 years old. He has already left details of his quality this season and has a hopeful future. Play in the left winger Arsenal.
Richarlison is possibly the best player on this team. He is another footballer who can cover many positions on the attacking front. The Everton striker sounds this summer even to reinforce Real Madrid. He has just played the Copa América with the absolute.
