1-1 Draw with Panama, Lucas Paqueta Played Well with the Brazilian National Team

By news-admin

Lucas Paqueta –  The Brazilian national team coach, Tite, was frustrated to see his foster children draw 1-1 against Panama in a friendly match on Sunday (24/4) WIB.

In the match, Tite performed a number of player rotations. Ederson went down as a goalkeeper, while Arthur, Lucas Paqueta and Richarlison played.

Lucas Paqueta who is shining with AC Milan received the number 10 because of Neymar’s absence. Paqueta answered that belief by scoring in the 32nd minute.

Starting from Casemiro’s long distance pass, Lucas Paqueta passed a number of opposing players. The 21-year-old midfielder listed the name on the scoreboard.

Unfortunately the superiority of the Brazilian national team did not last long. Four minutes later, Panama equalized the positionthrough Adolfo Machado and the 1-1 score lasted until the fight was over.

After the match, Tite considered his squad to play below expectations. However, he felt the Brazilian national team game was better after the break.

“The appearance of the Brazilian national team was quite bad in the first half, below my expectations. The second half was normal after a number of changes,” Tite said.

“The Brazilian national team appeared with four front players, we tried to change the way to play. Unfortunately we played poorly in the firat half and this was a bad result,” he continued.

Since the 2018 World Cup, this is the first time the Brazilian national team has failed to win. In addition, the results also marked the first time that Panama’s succeded, no less than Canarinho.
