Brazil coach Tite: Juventus defender Bremer deserved chance

Brazil coach Tite says Juventus defender Gleison Bremer has surprised staff.

Tite has included Bremer in his World Cup squad, having only capped him this season.

He explained, “Bremer had this opportunity to be called up thanks to his career and performances of a high level at Torino and Juventus.

“Perhaps we got it wrong and didn’t observe him closely enough, because he deserved more of our attention a lot earlier.

“When he arrived here, in the games and the training sessions we did together, he gave such a sense of certainty. He really is a player of great quality.”
