Menezes talks about the defeat against Morocco

Ramon Menezes returned to the performance of Brazil. The Brazilian coach spoke about the reasons for the defeat against Morocco, Saturday, during the friendly match between the Seleçao and the Atlas Lions.

“It wasn’t the result we expected, but we played against a great team and gave some new players playing time, which is very important.”

said Ramon.

“We had a bit of trouble at the beginning of the game, it was even expected. We thought, especially in the first half, to strengthen the defensive system a little more, especially on the sides, since Morocco is very strong on the flanks, especially on the right, with Hakimi and Ziyech. Paquetá supported Telles, sometimes Casemiro also helped, giving Vinicius Junior and Rodrigo some freedom and we had chances.

Although he presumes not to talk too much about arbitration, Menezes did not fail to doubt some decisions:

“I did not see the action of Vinicius well, I do not talk much about refereeing… In the second half we had more chances to score, we conceded the goal but I think the ball was touched by the hand of the opponent.”

“In the second half, I brought Veiga into the game to allow Vinicius to play at his position on the right. Everything we imagined happened. We created chances in the second half, but it was a difficult game”. “In any case, the week was very good with our players, we worked well and there was very good understanding on the tactical level, but we did not achieve the objective, which was the victory, but I am satisfied with everything that happened”

concluded Ramon Menezes.
