Brazil scout Bremer and Ibanez for World Cup

Brazil are reportedly sending members of Tite’s coaching staff to watch Juventus vs. Roma in order to scout Gleison Bremer and Roger Ibanez for the 2022 World Cup.

According to news agency ANSA, Tite himself won’t be present at the Allianz Juventus Stadium in Turin, but he will be represented by assistants Matheus Bachi and Fabio Mahseredijian.

They have booked their places in the stands for the Serie A match between Juventus and Roma on August 27.

There are two players they are scouting in particular, both of them centre-backs and presumably only one could earn a place in the Brazil squad for the World Cup in November and December.

Ibanez has six caps for Brazil at Under-23 level, but the 23-year-old Roma man has never played for the senior squad.

As for Bremer, he was voted Defender of the Season in Serie A for his performances at Torino and earned a €50m transfer to Juventus after a bidding war involving the likes of Inter, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea.

Despite all that, the 25-year-old has never been called up for international duty by Brazil.

Ibanez already has Italian citizenship and could technically be called up by Roberto Mancini for the Italy squad.

Bremer is on the verge of gaining his citizenship and again could be a future option for the Azzurri, unless Brazil get there first.

  1. What a joke. A season too late CBF. Just watch all his games from last season in case you missed it.

    Bremer has shown so much quality over the past year that he shouldn’t need scouting, far less in a “play off” with Ibanez.

    So does that mean if he doesn’t perform immediately with his new team in a new set up and team mates he isn’t good enough for Brazil? Brazilian technique, built like a brick house and trained with Serie A tactics….perfect prototype. Should have already had a cap or 2 by now.

  2. The thought and glamour of playing in a World Cup, may likely sway the decision of either of the players in favour of Brazil. Blame them not.
