Brazil have recently been in stupendous form after winning their recent friendly matches in spectacular style.
However, the upcoming friendly match against Chile at the Emirates stadium will be the perfect barometer of the team’s progress – since the humiliating World Cup 2014 – according to manager Dunga.
Despite recording a number of former stars like Kaka and Robinho, the former captain has primarily concentrated on tweaking the tactics of the team. This match will be an important part of the preparations for the upcoming Coppa America, which will take place in the summer.
Even though the tournament will be taking place in Chile, Brazil will be hoping to be victorious since it is the only possible way to eliminate the bad memories of the World Cup. Both teams are expected to have a number of European-based players in the team. For Chile, Alexis Sanchez will be playing at Emirates stadium where he has been in spectacular form. The Chilean has scored 18 goals in 36 matches for Arsenal this season. For Brazil, it is all going to be about Neymar while the likes of Oscar can also spring a surprise. Brazil have won all of the friendly matches since the World Cup while Chile have been showing inconsistent form.
“The year of 2015 will be very important for us, when we will play the Copa America and the qualifiers for the World Cup will also get started.Playing against Chile will be one more opportunity for the Brazilian National Team to get ready for the next challenges of this year.Brazil vs Chile is always a good game and I am sure that all fans will see a great show in London,” said Dunga.“I’m so excited and honoured to be playing for the national team of Chile, against our great rivals Brazil, in front of the incredible Arsenal fans at Emirates Stadium,” said Alexis Sanchez.
