Nothing will happen to Brazil without Vinny, says Uruguay coach


Neymar Jr. is already out of the entire Copa America due to injury. The performance of the team is also not very favorable. Meanwhile, the danger for Brazil has increased. Vinicius Jr. will not be able to play in the quarter-finals against Uruguay after showing yellow cards in two consecutive matches.

There is a lot of talk about his malnutrition. This Real Madrid star is the name of great hope of the Seleção. However, Uruguay coach Marcelo Bielsa believes that Brazil will not have much of a problem without Vinny. He believes that Brazil has enough capacity to fill his void.

“Personally, I don’t think Vinicius’ absence will have any impact,” Bielsa said. Brazil is a country that has a lot of wingers on both sides of the field. They play in big teams around the world. It will not be easy to hold back Endric in the absence of Vinicius.’

Uruguay advanced to the quarter-finals from the top of Group ‘C’ in the Copa America. Brazil became runners-up in ‘D’ group by drawing with Colombia and Costa Rica. Bielsa is thinking of sticking to his plan to handle the pressure against Brazil.

He said, ‘Normally, I look at the place where we play. How we recover the ball, whether we scare or not, how we create the threat, whether I can attack in the style I want, all these are in the plan.’
