In advance of the FIFA World Cup, Brazil manager Tite issued a clear directive to his team. Even if the world were to end, they would be concentrated on the game, he remarked, making it plain that he doesn’t want any interruptions during the competition. My attention is on the game right now, not the audience or anything else. Concentration is key. They have it, Thiago and Dani are like beasts. Additionally, they have excellent instincts and observation.
They are excellent role models and wonderful leaders because of the way they conduct themselves. I want to feel at ease whether or not we succeed. I am content with myself. That’s what I want. There are some things I have no control over. I want to be at ease and produce my best work. I am confident in my abilities. Serbia, Cameroon, and Switzerland are also in Group G with Brazil.
