Injuries keep Marquinhos and Richarlison out of the team’s match against Morocco | Brazilian national team

Ramon Menezes already has two victims in the friendly match against Morocco. Richarlison and Marquinhos will not be available next Saturday in Tangiers and will be dropped. The selection technical committee traveled on Saturday and will make the decision on the alternatives after settling in the African country. Bremer is the best candidate to inherit the defensive spot.

The Joint Border Force has not yet taken a position on this issue, even because the authorization is on the way to transit, but the expectation is that it will announce its position on the decision regarding the new recall. Ramon Menezes arrives in Morocco on Saturday with six other new faces in the coaching staff compared to Ahed Tite, and six remaining members of the team that participated in the World Cup in Qatar.

Richarlison and Marquinhos were among the potential starters for Saturday’s game. With the cuts, the number of players who were in Qatar who are part of Ramon’s initial roster has dropped to nine – Bremer, a potential replacement in defence, also played in the cup.

The Brazilian national team doctor, Rodrigo Lasmar, was in contact with Paris Saint-Germain this Saturday morning, after Marquinhos was not included in the duel with Rennes, and he received information that the defender still felt pain in his stomach. Trouble started in a 2-0 defeat against Bayern Munich, in the UEFA Champions League, on 8 March.

The coach called up 23 names for the match that will take place at 7 pm (Brasilia time), at the Grand Stadium in Tangier. Players will show up next Monday and already have activities scheduled for the same day. There will be five training sessions before the fourth Moroccan team meet in the last World Cup. FIFA’s date continues until the next 28, but the CBF chose to release after the match.
