Brazil planning massive changes following shock World Cup 2022 exit

Brazil are planning to make big changes following their elimination from the 2022 World Cup. The South American giants were eliminated at the quarter final stages by Croatia on penalties. They had one of the best squads heading into the tournament, and were one of the favourites to win. 

Tite has stepped down from his post as the head coach of the national team following their exit. He was in charge for six years, and led the team to successive World Cups – winning 60, with 15 draws and just one defeat in 81 matches, in which Brazil scored 174 goals and conceded 30. 

Brazil planning squad overhaul in the coming years 

Tite won the 18/19 Copa America with the Selecao, and led them to the finals of the competition last year. But the last time they progressed to the finals of the competition was all the way back in 2002 when they beat Germany in the finals. 

Pep Guardiola and Carlo Ancelotti have been linked as the top names to replace Tite. Ancelotti is currently focused on Real Madrid, and wants to finish the season with them. But, he could take charge in mid 2023 once his commitment to Los Blancos ends.

Moreover, the playing squad will also undergo several changes. The likes of Thiago Silva, Dani Alves and Neymar could retire from the national team following the tournament. But, this will pave the way for young stars like Eder Militao, Vinicius Jr, Antony, Endrick and Rodrygo to step up. 

As a result, we could see a very different Brazil team when the 2026 World Cup comes around in North America.
