    I am going to sound like a hater, but I am not sure if Gabigol can replicate his Flamengo success with the Selecao as it is currently constructed and playing at this moment. Flamengo has been creating a lot of chances and giving Gabigol a lot of opportunities to score. Not saying he is a product of the system, because he still has the talent to score a golaco out of nowhere like vs Santos and has had some clinical finishes, but he is also a bit wasteful for my liking. All top strikers miss some easy chances, but I think he can work on reducing the ones he has missed for us. With the Selecao, he may not get as many chances like he does at Fla and if the wastefulness carries over, it won't sit well.

    Agree. Problem is, we don't have many options. Tite needs to figure out what's the "least worst" option.

    Tite might get a quick hook if he doesn't start the WCQ well. We really haven't seen a good performance since the WC. As much as I rate him as a manager, if he doesn't make adjustments, I think he is done.

    I also don’t wanna sound like a hater, but this was a horrible game !
    I almost fell asleep.
    The stadium was half empty !
    The field was larger than the FIFA size, and the condition was atrocious.
    I remember not long ago that the Brasil national team would pack any stadium in any part of the world. Is it that the Brazilian mystique is over?
    As to the performance of our team, SOSO.

    I did not see the game but another draw. It is only a friendly but it is not encouraging
