After the stoppage (0-0 against Colombia) experienced by the Seleção in their series of victories in the qualifiers for the Qatar 2022 World Cup, Thiago Silva remains convinced of the beautiful dynamic of the Seleção.
The Brazilian national team are fielding victories, but eliciting comments that are not always enthusiastic when it comes to the substance of the game produced. At a press conference, Thiago Silva, the man who now has 100 selections, is very calm.
“I’ve been working with the Brazilian team for a while (since 2008). I have already gone through all the stages. I’ve had four World Cup cycles. And I know how difficult it is to form a team and a group that will play in a World Cup. Tite’s mission to choose the 23 players is very difficult. So much so that he selected more than 100 the first time. “
Thiago Silva recalls despite everything, that the team ensures the essential:
“Like I said, we didn’t play very well. We are on the right track. A path of victories which strengthens us in a certain way. With failures too, as against Argentina in the final of the Copa América. “
Against all odds, Thiago Silva and his teammates keep an excellent mentality. “It gives us strength. It gives us a stronger shell. We go through all these stages and I am sure we will arrive strong in Qatar. Even though we have not yet reached our goal mathematically, we are very close to achieving it. “
