After a positive season, with titles in the Brazilian Cup, over Corinthians, and Libertadores da América, against Atlético Paranaense, Flamengo prepares the project for 2023. With the ebbs and flows of the market, fans are paying attention to possible exits and reinforcements of the squad from Rio de Janeiro, now led by Vitor Pereira.

With season planning looming on the horizon, Flamengo fans are taking their first impressions of the team for 2023 with the first matches of the team led by the Portuguese. There have been four matches played so far in the current edition of the Carioca tournament: three wins and a draw. In addition, the duo became an international topic this Thursday (26th).

That’s because midfielder Arascaita and striker Gabigol were both on the list of the 100 best players in the world published by the English newspaper The Guardian. The two players are the only players in Brazilian football to appear in the ranking, which is not a top 10 player, but tends to have former Flamengo player Vinicius Junior between the heads.

The traditional list of the British newspaper includes Neymar at number 12 and Casemiro at number 15 of the top 20. Next are eleven more Brazilians: Alisson (34), Ederson (54), Richarlison (61), Gabriel Jesus (62), Marquinhos ( 65), Militao (67), Thiago Silva (75), Fabinho (77), Bruno Guimarães (90), Rodrygo (93) and Gabigol (99). Arrascaeta is 92.
