Brazil will put an end to their warmup matches with a friendly against Senegal that should cement some of their players as the leaders of the future for a struggling South American side trying to recover the glory of old. This time, the team led by interim boss Ramon Menezes will be facing Senegal, a tough but worthy opponent for this kind of matches.
The Brazilians enter this game fresh off a 4-1 win against Guinea, where Joelinton, Rodrygo, Eder Militao, and Vinicius found the back of the net for A Canarinha. This was just their first win of the year following a loss to Morocco back in March. This game will also be used by Menezes to shape up the team that is going to begin the World Cup Qualifiers for the South Americans in September, mainly because they have failed to secure a permanent coach since the end of the FIFA World Cup.
Their rivals at José Alvalade Stadium will be Senegal, one of the toughest African teams and who will reach this match days after securing their spot in the 2023 AFCON, where they will aim to win a second title in a row. The most recent match for the Lions of Teranga ended in a one-all draw against Benin, but that was enough to see them through to the continental tournament unscathed.
Football fans across the globe will be delighted to see the antics of top-caliber players for both sides. Brazil's talented strikers need no introduction, as Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo, Richarlison, and midfielders Lucas Paquetá and Casemiro will all be there trying to secure a win for A Canarinha. On the other side of the pitch, Senegal will be led by all-time top scorer Sadio Mané, with players such as Idrissa Gueye, Kalidou Koulibaly, and Nampalys Mendy trying to leave a lasting impression with their national team.
This will only be the second match in history between the national teams of Senegal and Brazil. The only previous meeting between these teams took place in October 2019, where the South Americans and the Lions of Teranga played out to a one-all draw. With a little bit of luck, we may be able to see one of these teams claiming a win this time around.
