In this new and exclusive Masterclass, Brazil head coach Tite reflects on his team’s superb and emotional victory in the final of the 2019 Copa América.
The Seleção went into the tournament on the back of a disappointing quarter-final defeat to Belgium in the 2018 World Cup. Tite continued in the role, but disaster struck in the build-up to the Copa América – a tournament Brazil hadn’t won since 2007 – when Neymar was injured in a friendly against Qatar.
In this fascinating and extended Masterclass, Tite explains the tactical reorganisation he made in the absence of the team’s talisman, before giving us a deep insight into his strategy for the final against Peru – a team they had earlier thrashed in the group stages. He reveals his tactics both in and out of possession, how they contributed to the goals Brazil scored in the final, and how he reacted to a second-half red card for Gabriel Jesus.
It’s a brilliant feature with one of the world’s most respected coaches. We hope you enjoy it!
