Brazil boss Tite has conceded that he got his team selection wrong during the World Cup, after he saw the positive impact of two players in particular during his side's 2-0 win over the United States.
As reported by AS, the Selecao boss has praised the performance of both Douglas Costa and Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino, who many felt should've started ahead of Gabriel Jesus in Russia.
Maybe i'm not seeing the full picture but I never understood why Jesus played ahead of Firmino at the world cup. After 1-2 games, Jesus should've been dropped, he wasn't good enough. If Tite wasn't stubborn maybe you'd of gone further. That's how I see it.— N (@CoachAgger) September 8, 2018
"This was a feeling we noticed when we met with the athletes. And it's a resumption in which Douglas Costa started only his second match. I was asked about the other athletes. But the others are the ones that were already but need more time on the field.
