World Cup Promotion: Willian will be tested up front with Neymar and Jesus


Brazil had a pre-World Cup training featured Willian together with Neymar and Gabriel Jesus last Thursday, giving a hint on there’s a chance that coach Tite is having a new starting lineup.

Willian having a training with two star strikers was to test if they’ll be compatible in the upcoming tournament. Their training lasted for 1 hour at the Granja Comary ground in Terespolis. During the training he tried new lineup using the trio and also used defender Marquinhos and Miranda during the hour, it leave that their former captain Thiago Silva on the bench in that moment.

If there will be changes to made on the team and Willian will be in for the starting lineup, it has a high probability  that hey remove Renato Augusto, while putting Philippe Coutinho in his place and that will open up for Willian to be in the starters.

Last year it can remembered that Tite said that he needs a “pacemaker” and considering Coutinho as one of his options it might put a lot danger to Augusto to be replaced after not being able to deliver as Brazil’s midfield. Get news on (World Cup Fixtures)
