‘Brazil is back’ – Cafu Fires WC Warning To Rivals. Brazil has been eliminated in the quarter-finals of three of the last four World Cups, but Cafu believes that will change in 2022.

Cafu believes Brazil can end a 20-year wait for World Cup glory, and he expects Neymar to help “break Europe’s dominance.” The former defender won the World Cup with Brazil in 2002, capping off a successful period for the national team, which had previously won the tournament in 1994 before losing in the final to France four years later.

Since then, though, Brazil has fallen short of the mark and has exited three of the last four competitions in the quarterfinal stage, with the exception of 2014, when Germany humiliated them 7-1 at home in the semifinals. However, Brazil is in good form heading to Qatar, having won 14 of their 17 qualifying games while going undefeated, and Cafu thinks this is the perfect chance for the national team.

It’s a great opportunity to break Europe’s dominance. It’s the perfect time for Brazil to break the curse and win the title,” he told ‘AFP.’ The two favorites are the “Selecao” and Argentina. Argentina also has a very good team, while Brazil is coming off a very successful season with great performances. These two nations have a strong chance of winning the World Cup.

“By playing well, by being motivated, I’m sure he will motivate the other players and make them feel that they are important so that they can win.” Cafu is aware that a threat is posed by some European nations, however, identifying defending champions France and Brazil’s Group G opponents Serbia as hurdles to overcome.

“Belgium, Denmark, Portugal and Serbia, as incredible as it may seem. Serbia qualified in first place in its group. They played very well in the World Cup qualifiers,” he added. “They have a strong team and are not afraid to play football against any opponent.

“France, too, will be very strong, as it was at the last World Cup. They will arrive with the label of reigning world champions and fight for the double. They will be one of the great teams to beat.” Brazil commence their World Cup campaign on November 24th against Serbia, before facing Switzerland and Cameroon in Group G.
