The Brazilian winger is the clear pick for Tite on the right hand side
Raphinha is Brazil’s indisputable starting winger on the right, above Antony and Rodrygo. TIte has made that clear, with two months to go until the World Cup. The winger has started well with Barcelona and he thrived against Ghana in Brazil’s 3-0 friendly win. The friendly also helped Richarlison position himself as the team’s No 9 ahead of the World Cup.
Antony, who came on for Vinicius, operated on the left for a few minutes. The Manchester United winger is Raphinha’s backup, however. And Rodrygo, who has been starting for Real Madrid, is also set to go, as a reserve for his club team-mate Vinicius.
The other player who will have a big role in the attack is, of course, Neymar. He will be on the left, Richarlison in the middle, and Raphinha on the right.
