Tite shows loyalty with 25 named to roster for World Cup run-up

Brazil's Ederson hailed head coach Tite as being one of the best managers in football.

When Tite replaced Dunga as Brazil coach, a third of the World Cup qualification cycle had gone by and Brazil were in sixth place, in serious danger of not making it to Russia. Instead, the campaign became a triumphant march. With 10 wins and two draws, Brazil cruised to qualification but there are no prizes for crossing the line first. The World Cup is all about coming good at the right time.

So how does Tite play it now? Clearly there is a need to show some loyalty to those who have done so...

Unwanted by Italy, Napoli star Jorginho is waiting for Brazil to call

The FC crew examine an enticing start to the Serie A season, which sees Juventus' stranglehold on Italy threatened.
Craig Burley and Alexis Nunes predict the outcomes of this week's UCL fixtures, headlined by Real Madrid versus Tottenham.

Brazil coach Tite will be attending the Champions League fixture between Manchester City and Napoli on Tuesday, and his major task is clear. He knows all about Pep Guardiola's Selecao stars Gabriel Jesus, Fernandinho and Ederson, but now a new name is about to enter the frame ahead of the World Cup. Napoli midfield star Jorginho has always wanted to represent Italy, and yet he won't refuse an even more lucrative proposition.

"If Brazil call him up, he will accept it," Jorginho's agent, Joao Santos,...

Despite qualifying with ease, Brazil have areas to improve pre-World Cup

Brazil has rolled under Tite but need to be wary of peaking too far ahead of Russia '18.

While the other South American teams are still scrambling to collect enough points to get them to Russia, Brazil can look down on proceedings with a lofty disdain. It is hard to remember that after a third of the qualification campaign, they were down in sixth place in the table and with genuine concerns of not making it to the 2018 World Cup. Then Dunga was replaced by Tite, and the team, largely the same group of players, showed the difference that a quality coach can make. Brazil...

Bolivia striker Marcelo Martins gatecrashes Brazil team photo

Keen-eyed viewers may have noticed an impostor creeping into the Brazil team's prematch photo ahead of Thursday night's World Cup qualifier against Bolivia.

That man was Bolivia striker Marcelo Martins who, in slightly unorthodox fashion, was invited to pose with the Selecao having represented Brazil at youth level.

Born in Bolivia to a Brazilian father, Marcelo played for Brazil right the way up until Under-20 level before swapping his international allegiance and going on to earn 63 senior caps...

'There won't be another player like Pele' - Brazil legend retired in 1977

Pele is carried off the pitch in his final game.

When Edson Arantes do Nascimento (otherwise known as Pele) finally retired on Oct. 1, 1977, he stood in the centre of the pitch in New Jersey, held his right hand aloft in a victory salute at the end of a short speech and said simply: "Love, love, love."

Having scored and played for both sides in a friendly between the only two teams he ever represented, New York Cosmos and Santos, the man considered by many to be the greatest player of all-time would not be seen in competitive action again.


Tite has Brazil in an enviable position, but there are five areas for concern

With another round of WC qualifying in the books, the FC panel discuss who looks most impressive at the moment.

Spare a thought for Tite. No, seriously.

Barely a year after taking over a Brazil side on the ropes in the South American World Cup Qualifiers, he has engineered an amazing comeback that has even some of the most cautious commentators in the country daring to mention the side amongst the candidates for the title in Russia next summer.

Even before last Tuesday's match against Colombia in Barranquilla, the Selecao had already guaranteed not only a place in the 2018 World Cup but also put enough distance...
