Key Players: Neymar & Thiago Silva
Brazil’s wonder boy Neymar is the key to Brazils chances and he has already shown what he is made off on international stage last year with a great performances in confed cup. While Thiago Silva is the back bone of Brazil defense, he is widely regarded as the best defender.
Formation & Tactics:
Brazil like to play with 4-3-3 formation, with Fred playing as centre forward while Neymar and Hulk coming in from left and right respectively. Neymar also swap position with Fred from time to time while a three man midfield is the key to retain the ball. Dani Alvez from the right back position bomb forward in typical Brazil style.
