Manchester United midfielder Casemiro has predicted that Brazil is among the favourite to win the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Recall that the former Real Madrid star was listed in Brazil’s World Cup squad by coach Adenor Leonardo Bacchi, known as Tite.
Reacting to his selection, Casemiro in a chat with TribalFootball, stated that he’s optimistic Brazil can win the World Cup.
He said, “I’m really happy. It’s a dream come true. It is undoubtedly a dream from childhood to represent one’s country.

“Our team is full of high-quality players, and there is really great competition in the team.
“We know that we have to be humble and work hard. We cannot hide the fact that we are one of the favourites – along with other fantastic teams.
“But being a favourite doesn’t count. What counts is one’s work effort every day on the pitch.”
Style of play
Casemiro mainly plays as a defensive midfielder, although he has also been deployed in a box-to-box role in the centre of the pitch,or even as a centre-back on occasion. While he is not particularly talented or skilful from a technical standpoint(although he was able to improve in this area under manager Zinedine Zidane during their time at Real Madrid together), Casemiro is an intelligent, physically strong, mobile, aggressive, and hard-tackling midfielder, with an extremely high work-rate. while he is mainly known for his ability to provide balance to his teams by supporting his more offensive-minded teammates defensively, and distributing the ball to them accurately after winning back possession, he is also a well-rounded midfielder, who possesses a powerful shot from outside the penalty area, and reliable distribution, as well as an ability to get forward with his runs off the ball, or start attacks with his passing.
