A generation that bears the responsibility of defending a world football title.
If the phrase may sound archaic for a major team that hasn’t lifted the world’s most important trophy in two decades, and served as inspiration for the Sub-20, which in May is trying to become champions again after 12 years, for the Sub-17 it fulfills the role. Class validation up to the South American Championships in Ecuador as favorites. Not even the absence of such popular names Indrikjealousy.

It is impossible to talk about it Generation 2006 Not to mention the sale of Palmeiras jewel to Real Madrid for about 400 million Brazilian riyals. He felt absence, as did the Palmyre folks Luis Guilherme and Estevaofrom Corinthians PedrinoHowever, this does not diminish the confidence that Brazil has Philip Lyle Link to the 2019 World Championship title, the current coach was assistant Guilherme Dalla Dia in charge of the team that beat Mexico in turn and reached the top of the world four years ago in Brasilia.
with a cycle of seven calls and outcomes, The traditional championship title for Montague, France, last yearLille has reason to believe that Brazil will perform well, starting Thursday, 9pm (Brasilia time), against the hosts, Ecuadorians, in Guayaquil. Even if mentioning Indrik wasn’t a natural thing, The recent history of the boys themselves has shown that the waiting list moves quickly.
– The relationship of respect and admiration that exists between them is very large and well-established. Six months ago, we were saying what happened to Andrik could happen to others. Soon after, Pedrino and Luis Guilherme were in a similar situation.
“Everyone has their time, and their absence is an opportunity for the fans to meet other talents. And there are great talents here!”

In all, five holders of the 2-1 victory over Argentina, in Montagu, just under a year ago, are not in South America: Andric, Luis Guilherme and Pedrino have not been released by their clubs, while Vitor Figueiredo, from Palmeiras, and Escherdinha, from Fluminense, are absent. due to injury. Lille, in turn, prefers to see the glass half full and praises the blossoming of new talent:
Here are the best players at the moment. I have no doubt that we have chosen the right players to represent Brazil in this tournament. Those who will make the difference. They deserve to be here and we are very confident.
If I were to talk individually, I would also talk about players like Ryan (Vasco) and Laurent (Flamengo), who were not in Montague and today they are professionals. The boys who are not here would like to be here and we have to appreciate the ones who are on the inside.

How did Brazil get to the South American U-17 Championship?
played the same way as Sub-20, The South American Championship is divided into two groups of five participants, with the top three advancing to the final six, which will give four places to the World Cup to be held in Peru.. a Brazil comes in the first group, along with Ecuador, Chile, Uruguay and Colombia The entire first stage will be held in Guayaquil.
With victories over Sub-18 of Botafogo, 4 to 1, and Sub-20 of Friburguense, 3 to 0, in the final week of preparation in Granja Comary, Brazil reached the continental fray buoyed by a year-long tournament beyond Montagu against Mexico, England and the Netherlands and Argentina. Among the nine opponents on the continent, the team measured its strength with four victories over Chile, Paraguay and the Argentines.
– Only Bolivia and Venezuela saw one match, but they fell into the other group and we will have a sample of the competition – Lille points out.
A team that beats Mexico in the comeback and is a four-time U-17 World Cup champion
Debut competition, Ecuador is the opponent that Philip Leal’s team has been unable to overcome. In February, two friendly matches took place: 1 to 1 and 4 to 4. As for the “but” they were played at an altitude of Quito, even for the preparation of the hexagonal final to be played at 2800 metres.
– He is an opponent with a very interesting game. Positional game, but does not lose the South American characteristics of a more vertical attack, passing, well-trained coup balls … – specifies Philippe Lille.
The danger of Ecuador comes, above all, from the well-organized base of Independiente del Valle, the current champion of the Copa America and Recopa. There are nine players from the club that recently sent Sao Paulo and Flamengo among the pros, with the focus on the left striker. Kendrey Paiz, who has introduced talks with Chelsea.
More than the current world champions, Brazil holds undisputed supremacy in the South American category. Of the 18 South American players, the country has won 12 matches and finished runners-up in three other matches.. At the World Cup finals, the country was also a major winner, with four with Nigeria.
But interestingly, the achievement of 2019 came after the worst participation in the history of the South American Championship, when it was even outside the final six-player version and only played in the World Cup for being the host country after Peru withdrew.
However, the emotional triumph of Lázaro’s goal at the end, four years ago, is the latest memory to add to an inspiring series of fundamental splits. Current two-time Olympic champions, Brazil just won the South American Sub-20 Championship in Colombia:
When you create a winning culture, an expanding mindset. Branco’s work has always been clear that it is vertical, and that it strives for continuity.
“Branko always talks about the Olympic cycle of the World Cup, about the under-20s of this new transitional process. So, it is the first step in this integrated process”
With 23 names, Brazil’s Vasco and Palmeiras have the most club collaborations with players in the competition. A team that is used to playing in a 4-2-3-1 formation, but above all has a knack for attacking, as Lille explains.
– No matter what structure we will play, the goal is to have an attacking identity, an ambition to score goals, and the desire to get close to the opponent’s goal, but always with balance. When we have a core that is the focus, at certain times, we must be willing to change.
Brazil and Ecuador will participate for the first time in the South American Championship at 21:00 (Brasilia time), this Thursday, at the Cristian Benitez Stadium, belonging to the city of Guayaquil. Next, the team faces Chile, Colombia and Uruguay, with a day off set in the fourth round. The competition will continue until April 23, the date of the last round of the final hexagon, in Quito.
