The Brazilian team is making its last friendly of the year this Tuesday at 10:30 am in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Titus's team faces South Korea at Mohammed bin Zayedem Abu Dhabi Stadium to close out the year with a win after five friendly matches without a win.
Coming from a friendly defeat to Argentina last Friday in Saudi Arabia, the team will have five changes. This time, Titus opened the lining. The coach will keep Packets in the middle and throw Kutinho in front of Richardson. In the middle of the field, the novelty is Fabiano, in Casemiro's vacancy.
– Lodi did well at the games. Fabinho built these stages, when he got into it he was doing well. The package is an opportunity for an extension. Richardson prefers to play at 9. With Kutino aside, he returns to where he has produced the most. Richardson said that the national team prefers to play 9 and is well-produced, a terminal with very high completion capacity – justified the national team coach.

Coach Titus makes five changes to his defeat against Argentina. The idea is to go back to training similar to qualifying. That is why Coutinho returned to the position he had played in much of Brazil's World Cup qualifying campaign in 2022. Prior to that, Fermino left and Richardson, a more aggressive and forward striker. Unlike the Liverpool striker.
Brazil's most likely lineup to face South Korea are Allison, Danilo, Markinhos, Fderder Militio and Renan Lodi; Fabiano, Arthur and Packet; Gabriel Jesus, Coutinho and Richardson.
