Former Arsenal player Denilson believes that the current Brazilian team has a great chance to shine at the Russian World Cup.
However, he admitted that it might be a bit difficult for them to win the competition as there are some other big teams that will be at the tournament.
But he feels that the team is on a good path and that they are showing signs that they are progressing.
He said that it had been a difficult moment for the Brazilian team ever since the last World Cup where they were humiliated by Germany. He said that there was such an expectation from the fans and that they were disappointed with the way the team performed in the tournament.
However, he feels that the team has managed to bring back some glory after the win in the Olympic Tournament and that fans are gradually getting back behind the team.
Denilson said that results have also improved on the pitch with the team at the top of the qualifying table and he believes that they will become better.
He said that now the team plays like a team and that they are not over-reliant on Neymar. He said that the team in the last World Cup did not have any playing style and that they were always looking towards Neymar to bail them out.
He said that things have changed now and that the team now plays collectively better and that there are many players that can score goals. He feels that the team will become stronger and that they should have a good chance in the Russian World Cup.
He believes that they have a good coach now and that he has successfully restored confidence in the team. The players now believe in themselves and believe that they can win a match against the big teams.
