Tite also answers Mbappé: “We don’t play with Azerbaijan”

Must Read

Tite joined the voices that dismiss the statements of Kylian Mbappé, who had said that qualifying for the World Cup is more difficult for teams in Europe than in South America.

The striker for Paris Saint-Germain and the French National Team expressed last May that the teams from the Old Continent have an advantage for the appointment in Qatar, considering that they play “high-level matches” in the Qualifiers.

The 2018 world champion in Russia added that soccer in South America “is not as developed as in Europe”, and this led several from the region to answer him. In this case, the strategist from Brazil now appeared, a team that surpassed the South American qualifiers as leader with 14 wins and 3 draws.

“Maybe (Mbappé) is talking about Nations matches or European friendlies, but not about the World Cup Qualifiers,” Tite tried to explain in dialogue with ESPN, to clarify that he disagrees with the words of the Gallic.

But the technician went further and ignited the controversy. “We don’t have, with all due respect, Azerbaijan to play with. We don’t have any opponents to give you a break. The Qualifiers here (in South America) have a much higher degree of difficulty than the European qualifying group stage.” he asserted.

To endorse Mbappé’s statements, the last four editions of the World Cup have been won by European teams: Italy in 2006, Spain in 2010, Germany in 2014 and France in 2018.

That’s the longest winning streak for a single continent in tournament history, with only one runner-up coming from outside that continent: Argentina in 2014.
