National Team Radar: Jesus “Da Varzia” seeks balance in a better moment on the eve of the Cup

There is a meeting point between the questions of journalists Fred Caldera and Joao Castelo Branco, the Brazilian reporters in England, and the answers of Pep Guardiola and Gabriel Jesus. The 25-year-old – this 2016 Olympic champion, the first part champion of the Tite era in the 2018 qualifiers is still only 25 years old – was left up in the air Combined with a lack of goals in a very recent stage of his career, his confidence and an early existential crisis when the striker was gone..

Not long ago, he said loud and clear that he was more comfortable as a winger – and so it went well with Tite at the Copa America 2019 and at the start of the 2022 qualifiers – and seemed to be dodging goal chances. If he entered the area, it was to look for someone better.

But Jesus scored two more goals and provided two extra assists for this beautiful start – and it’s still just the beginningwhich means he needs to strengthen it – with Arsenal de Arteta and Brazilian football director Edu Gaspar. In the same match, Gabriel Martinelli also scored, in one of them in the ball of Jesus, with which he would have scored his third goal.. The duo arrive sharply for the final stretch of the cup, but today it is best to see only Jesus practically guaranteed on the Tite roster.

“Obviously, because of the circumstances that happened after the cup, I ended up playing more on the wing in A Seleção and at City as well,” Gabriel told ESPN after the 4-2 win over Leicester.

It’s been more than four years since Gabriel left the cup without scoring and he was accused of that and also because he “only scored from the side”. It seems like a long time, but it’s been eight years since Fred was named Cone, and today, the retired tricolor scorer recounts the pain of that period of over-collecting, and why not? , Stupid. The signs are still alive with Jesus as well. When he leaves City, he finds a new environment, a new club and an old passion: the goal.

– It’s normal to pick up and think you can’t play with a 9, I’m a winger. This has been in my head for a long time. Now I have a different mind and I believe in myself so much more. I went back to being my usual Gabriel, thinking I was nine, and that I was there to finish the game, to help, of course not just to score goals. I’m back to where I was before, a bit similar to being a Lowland player. This robot is no longer what it used to be – Jesus was added by journalist Joao Castelo Branco.

Despite talk of being a floodplain boy again, and not wanting to be “Robot Gabriel” anymore, the Brazilian can’t even forget for a second the teachings Pep Guardiola gave him. It took five years of learning. But in the end, at least for the player, confusion seemed to arise between the tactical player – who Guardiola said became a coach to meet someone like that – and creativity.. That’s sure.

– Tactics are just there to help the player express his talent more often. I use tactics to create patterns that make everyone more comfortable with more time for the greatest possible expression of talent – Guardiola told Fred Caldera.

But could too much information and tactics kill the best of Gabriel? Impossible to know. Nor does he have that answer. But it is a promising final extension. This removes the doubts that seemed valid about the World Cup for the second time.

The recovery of Gabriel Jesus is accompanied at a high level by Neymar, who is also close to his best days in Europe in a French championship that still does not test him in the way that the big stars like. But why not make the most of a luxurious ready-to-wear season?

In Spain, news of Matthews Cunha’s possible departure from Atletico Madrid brings to Fred and the stunning Cristiano Ronaldo Manchester United – who beat Brentford 4-0 – brings the natural concern that the striker needs extra minutes this season – remaining in reserve. At the start of the season, the Brazilian competition increases with Pedro’s brilliant stage.

In Italy, the teams Danilo and Alex Sandro played correctly in the opening of the Italian championship. She was a left-back cross for Di Maria’s first goal in Italy. And the technical staff of the Brazilian team will monitor Monday closely.. As well as Kona, Felipe and Renan Lodi from the Madrid team.
