FIFA WORLD CUP 2022: According to defender Danilo, Brazil will have to be at their best to beat Croatia in the quarterfinals of the FIFA World Cup on Friday. The right-back dismissed suggestions that the five-time champions are favorites to enter the match at the Education City Stadium. “We are only sure of one thing, the best possible Brazil against Croatia, the best Brazil of this World Cup,” Danilo told a news conference, Xinhua news agency reported.
Croatia was a finalist in the last World Cup, they have an experienced base of good players, with a lot of flair and ambition to win. There’s only one way to beat them, and that’s by reaching the best possible version of yourself. Danilo said he hoped Juventus teammate Alex Sandro, who suffered a hip problem in Brazil’s second Group G match against Switzerland, would be back in time for Friday’s game.
In case Sandro is out, Danilo said that he can stand on the left. I have played in Manchester City and Juventus in different positions under different schemes. The coach tries to get the best out of us and looks for that versatility in each one.
