In World Cup 2022
Brazil’s Congress has formed a committee to supervise the national team’s World Cup preparations, claiming that the Selecao’s reputation is at a “low point” following a string of setbacks that wounded the country’s pride.
On Thursday, the lower house’s sports committee voted to establish a separate committee that will keep an eye on Neymar and his team as they get ready to leave for Qatar in just under three months in an effort to restore the honor of the five-time World Cup champions.
Brazil, who is ranked No. 1 in the world by Fifa after sweeping through the South American qualifiers undefeated in 17 games, is going into the tournament as the favorite.
But it hasn’t put the lawmakers in the football-crazy nation at rest.
With the exception of 2014, when we hosted the competition and were humiliatingly defeated by Germany, Brazil has not advanced to the World Cup semifinals since capturing our fifth title in 2002, according to Congressman Jose Rocha’s proposal to establish the committee.
He claimed that Brazil’s 20-year title drought and that humiliating 7-1 defeat at home have “distanced Brazilian football from the fans.”
In the home of Pele, support for the national team has dwindled recently; according to a recent survey by the Datafolha institute, 51% of respondents think the World Cup doesn’t interest them.
Rocha expressed, “We really want to resuscitate this game, which as well as assuming an evident part in the public eye is viewed as a public energy.
Some doubted whether Congress had no different needs.
Government examiner Janice Ascari logically tweeted, “Are these legislators at all worried about hunger or the other gigantic financial issues confronting the country?”In World Cup 2022, Brazilian Congress will manage the World Cup squad.
Brazil starts their World Cup crusade on November 24 against Serbia. Brazil has won the competition multiple times by and large — in 1958, 1962, 1970, 1994, and 2002 — more than some other group.
