BRASIL BRASIL BRASIL your favorite team. So one of my favorites up to one of. Holland I don’t want to see them out. Yeah one of his favorites. So hopefully we can talk about Brazil in less than 25 podcast or 52 podcast. I feel like he can go on and on about Brazil so get ready get ready. He’s got a lot of love here. What do you have for us today we’re focusing on Brazil.

Well Brazil they call themselves the Scilla SAO is selling sounds how it’s pronounced souses which means the selection so the national team. They also call themselves the country know which is the little little canary. And what’s that about. Is that like there. I’m not sure if it’s a national bird or not but it’s also the color of their uniform. They were a canary yellow which is a beautiful team so I think winning teams where Canary as my shop they always say winning teams are red.

But I guess soccer.

How do you say it again Cynara am you kind of you know kind of nice. So they are characterized by having a bold attacking football style with a lot of flair and they’re always they always have highly skillful players in all their positions. When you think of them I always see them using the outside of their foot a lot which is not done so much in Europe and other places. But I see them using the outside foot dribbling with it passing with it. It’s just a beautiful way to see someone move the ball. What’s done like what’s the other way if you don’t use the outside of your foot or do you see in Europe when passing a lot of times in Europe I see the inside of the foot so they’ll use on the knee on the right side of their body. They’ll use the right the inside the right on the left that is the inside of the left. ┬áTulsa Soccer Training And every now and then I use the outside. But Brazil really takes it to another level with using that part of their foot.

Does that matter. Is there one way that’s like better or more technically sound or is it just preference and how you can execute a skill preference kind of reference.

And when I see them do it they just look so beautiful and they look full of flair and I enjoy watching them.

But I may be jumping the gun here I know I am. I’m known for doing that but wasn’t there World Cup was it the last one that we watched with them were they didn’t do well or what I now remember Neymar got hurt.

And then what happened because you were saying they’re so formidable and strong and I’m not disagreeing. Obviously they they advanced I think. But what happened this last time there was like a break down wasn’t it.

Yeah I think there was too much pressure to begin with Tulsa Soccer Training.

Was this the last World Cup I remember talking about it like I can’t even remember what I’m. Right. I remember watching these to what happened. It was in Brazil. That’s right. Right.

That’s right. And so there’s pressure to undo what happened back in 19. See where it was 19 50 when they lost to Uruguay. So they want to win on home soil.

But why does it go back to 1950. I mean do you really think they’re out there. Are they just thinking out the previous World Cup.

No I’m sure that with their passion and their World Cup history and knowledge and what they’re trying to undo they want to win at home to undo that feeling of we can’t win at home is that when they wore the all white uniform that they never did that again.

Yes. OK. So I’m tracking with you because there is no such thing as like a collective conscience. And so probably in soccer they are they I can see that now. At first I was like gosh it was a long time ago. So you just think they had too much pressure on themselves and couldn’t perform enough.

Tulsa Soccer Training I think so. And with Neymar getting hurt because he was really having a great World Cup. And with him getting hurt they lost a lot of their talking flair.

That made me so sad because I hoped he was OK. I was worried about his back and he ended up being all right.

You know he’s playing now for Barcelona. Nice.

OK. So that was my little. What happened. You know in the last World Cup. But what else have you got. Sprain something like last year.

So they have a lot of overlapping backs. Their outside backs always overlap and I love seeing them do that. I used to play outside back a lot as well as outside made so I could remember pushing the ball forward and going up the line. I remember players like Roberto Carlos and Joe Zino and Julio say Zurab Alberto Carlos all these different players that came and played in the outside back positions they are wonderful to watch and see play and they have their own concept of total football so you’ll see them interchange and move. And then when they lose the ball they drop back very quickly and get back into shape. So a lot of people criticize them when they say they don’t defend well but the problem is they push forward so much and attack so well they usually outscore their opponents by quite a big margin. So you’ll hear people criticize their defending but when you attack like they do you might give up a few goals.

So you talk about their interpretation of total football and I know I’ve learned from you like the Dutch that’s a Dutch concept from Kroy who started that or was it someone else.

It was it was started in the 60s late 60s with Kroy and Renesmee calls his coach the coach that I-X and also at Barcelona.

He Rena’s that he wrote that book that you like which one is it. Is it brilliant orange or is that a.

No it is Tulsa Soccer Training.

Oh I forget the name right now but it don’t come back to us. But I see a book with his name on it I know you have an album. So Holland has that philosophy that they develop. How is Hollonds expression of total football different to Brazil’s expression of total football. I’m really curious about that.

That’s a very good question. Thank you. You’re welcome. I look at it just because I never really compare the two in that way but I think of it as what Holland did in the 70s was more dynamic like I saw more players switching and like Kroy would come back and play in the defense for quite a while and then someone else would move into a spot and they would keep that for a while. Sustain it for a longer period of time and they would use it to their advantage to beat the opponent to change make the opponent think more about what’s going on because all of a sudden when a striker leaves and goes back to play defense you know all of a sudden they’re wondering what’s happening.

And then someone else comes into that spot and who does that that’s how how long Holland does it expresses that goal.

And it was only that 1974 and 78 those two teams that really did it like that. And then I accept that same time because that’s where many of the players played. But it has not been expressed in the same way recently.

So that was kind of like the height of that expression those players that expression. How does Brazil do that same thing but in a slightly different you know how do they bring their flair to it.

Tulsa Soccer Training Brazil has a little bit more structure I think when they come to their outside backs overlap and then people will fill in those gaps for them. They also have a defensive center mid that holds the shape and the defensive line for everybody. So they they’ll move forward and attack very quickly when they are attacking their very free flowing. But when they defend everybody gets back into the shape like right away as opposed to where the Dutch team it was the person who was closest to the ball would pressure and people would hold their shape no matter where they were on the field.

So I want to make sure I understand. I think you explained that really well still like the Dutch. They have an interchangeable flow where I may be in one position and then I flow to another one I may come back to that original position I may go somewhere else just a constant shape shifting if you will. And then in Brazil they shape shift as a team but each individual stays in their position. Is that rider.

They shape shift as a team when they are attacking but when they defend they drop back into their original position. Shane interesting discipline in both ways.

Yeah it’s really cool just to hear like each you know expression which is probably rooted in culture in some way. You know I love analyzing those things. OK. Well what else have you got for us about this one aspect of the triumphant trio team Brazil Brazil.

They always have potent strikers so their strikers are always strong always good. They also became a member of FIFA in 1923 So that’s seven years before the first World Cup. So they’ve been in the organization for a very long time and they’re the only team to have played in every single World Cup.

Shut up. Yes.

Every single day every single one they’ve never missed the World Cup.

OK. Because you said you have to like work and go through all those you know challenges or tournaments in your region in order to advance.

They have a chance every single day every single time so the only way you you don’t have to qualify is if you’re the returning champion or the host country.

I see. OK. Interesting. Now you said they’ve been a member of FIFA for since 1923 now wasn’t don’t I remember something about there being some corruption in that organization.

FIFA itself yes there was. There’s a lot that was going on. I think there’s still a trial as a matter of fact.

So they’re still navigating navigating through that.

Yes. Talking with a U.S. official I think that was that he actually accepted bribes and so they’re investigating even more. So it’s opening up an entire organization.

I see. Well we are unpacking the triumphant trio of Brazil Italy and Germany. And I know in our last podcast you mentioned how many wins each one of those teams had. You were telling us Brazil had five yeah men and Italy had four. Germany had four. They’re all tied. Italy and Germany are tied. Brazil’s got a little nose ahead. So we I guess I know we’re not done talking about Brazil. No no no no. I told you guys it’s going to be it’s going to be a lot. He loves these people loves the Brazilian team.
