Vinicius’s last great challenge

Vinicius Jr It is being one of the great sensations of world football when the first third of the season has already been passed. The player of the Real Madrid has taken a step forward in scoring matters and is indisputable for Carlo Ancelotti, which has given him the stripes and confidence necessary for his football to have exploded definitively.

Together with his partner Karim Benzema, Vinicius It is the great offensive argument of the white team and their numbers do not deceive and clearly show the leap that has taken from the hand of the Italian coach. He has participated in all 16 matches of the Madrid this season (the only one in the squad with Courtois and Militao), is the fifth footballer in number of minutes played (1,275, 88% of the total) and already has nine goals and seven assists, records that pulverize those he achieved in his three previous seasons, when he was widely criticized and discussed for his limited efficiency against the rival goal.

Converted into an idol of the white fans after dispelling all the doubts that surrounded his figure, Vinicius, at 21 years old, faces the next great challenge of his career: being important with the selection of Brazil. The winger does not just have continuity in Tite’s team, as the coach has always opted for other footballers rather than for the Real Madrid player.

In fact, Vinicius was left out of the last list for the qualifying matches for the World Cup in Qatar against Colombia and Argentina but Tite, before the injury of Firmino, decided to include at the end of the Real Madrid. The other forwards called up are Neymar, Gabriel Jesús, Matheus Cunha, Antony and Raphinha, the latter two after starring in a great start to the season in their respective clubs, Ajax and Leeds United.

Since Tite gave him the alternative in the absolute of Brazil in a friendly against Peru in September 2019, Vinicius he has never been able to gain the trust of his coach. Since then he has only played seven games (without scoring any goals) and in the last national team break in October he played a very minor role. He played 27 minutes against Venezuela and did not move from the bench in the duels against Colombia and Uruguay.

The competition with Neymar, the main obstacle

Before that Vinicius, Tite decided to bet on Paquetá or Raphinha as companions of the undisputed Gabriel Jesus and Neymar. The PSG player is undoubtedly the Madridista’s great obstacle to making a place for himself in the Canarinha. Neymar and Vinicius They share a natural habitat on the left wing of the attack and the stripes are heavy: the former Barça player is a watchword in their team and one of their captains.

The lack of opportunities that Tite gave him in the last break caused the reaction of Vinicius, that upon his return to Valdebebas wrote on his Twitter account: “Where I am happy.” The hint to the coach was evident and now Vinicius is obliged to convince Tite to start showing in Brazil what he has shown in the Real Madrid.
