The Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) released a behind-the-scenes video of the 5-1 victory over Bolivia, achieved last Friday (8). In one of the excerpts of the production, the Brazilian national team coach, Fernando Diniz, gives a motivational speech to the players and excited Brazilian fans with the words chosen by the coach.
“Aggressiveness from beginning to end. The guys (Bolivia) are going to go down there, don’t let the guys breathe. Circulate the ball and go thirsty, in a way that will make people say ‘h… that’s how Brazil is’. And you have to have soul, you have to have spirit, you have to give everything. You are heroes to many people”, shouted Diniz, to the cast of 23 athletes.
“You are heroes to many people”

In addition to the great performance, seeing a team already with its tactical characteristics, Brazilian fans were excited by the way Diniz communicated and motivated the players. For many, there is no longer a need for the Italian Carlo Ancelotti to take over the Brazilian team in 2024. The foreign coach’s contract with Real Madrid, from Spain, ends in June next year and he is the most popular name to definitively take over Brazil.
Many fans also point out that Diniz’s attitude could revive the Brazilian people’s feeling of returning to the national team – a reason highlighted by the distance of the players called up, with most of them playing on the European continent. Check out some of the praise and praise for the Brazil coach.
The “you are a lot of people’s heroes” was great, our team was missing a bit of that, especially those from the old team, who seem to have forgotten the history of this shirt, the magical football where the opponent would enter the field and say “fucked” .

It is necessary to make it very clear from the beginning, it doesn’t matter if it is against Bolivia, Argentina or France…
“MUST HAVE A SOUL”
If Brazil plays football with soul, it considerably increases its chances of being champion again, no more fuss and fuss.

Despite it being very early, I think it would be better to leave Diniz alone. If it were to be a foreigner, it would have to be Abel Braga or Guardiola.

It’s not about the opponent, but about what the team represents.
The selection has always been for the people.
And this has been lost for some time now.
Players need to understand the importance of wearing this shirt.
I think that was the message

I can imagine the guys who are used to calmer European coaches seeing Diniz shouting like that, it will be very interesting to see Diniz rescuing the Brazilian side of the team

Diniz’s Brazilian team returns to the field tomorrow
With the victory, Brazil leads the South American Qualifiers for the 2026 World Cup, tied on points with Uruguay, Argentina and Colombia, but with a better goal difference. Now, the Brazilian team will go to Lima, Peru, to face the Peruvian team this Tuesday (12), at the Nacional stadium, at 11pm (Brasília time).
As published by Trivela, Diniz should repeat the lineup that beat Bolivia with Ederson; Danilo, Marquinhos, Gabriel Magalhães and Renan Lodi; Casemiro, Bruno Guimarães and Neymar; Raphinha, Rodrygo and Richarlison.
An exclusive survey by Trivela revealed that only 10 clubs in the Brazilian Championship have psychologists who accompany the professional team. https://t.co/P8Vm8tvky8
