Casemiro believes Brazil squad is much stronger than the one in 2018

A late Casemiro screamer saw Brazil book their place in the last-16 following a1-0 win over Switzerland.

Manchester United midfielder, Casemiro, believes that Selecao boast a lot more options than they had back in the 2018 World Cup.

Casemiro, who scored a rocket half-volley in the 83rd minute to win the match for




in an otherwise quiet game, praised Brazil’s squad in a post-match press conference, saying:

"Four years have gone by, there are new players, this year we have a wider range of options, we have more to choose from, without even changing the team we can change the way we play," Casemiro said in a post-match press conference.

"If we substitute players we have even more options. There's no doubt the options are much greater than those in 2018. Not only because time has gone on and we are mature.

"We have defenders who are more experienced, we've had another match without conceding. It's not Alisson, it's not the defence, it starts up front with Richarlison.

"The range of options is much greater than at the last World Cup."

Brazil coach Tite agreed with


, as he said:

"There's a wide range of options because there's a four-year period of developing this,"

"What won today was this four years, and them being able to develop in a natural way, despite being young.

"If that weren't the case, it would be very difficult. Who won today? This process, this development. That was the cherry on the cake."

Brazil was without their talisman Neymar whom Tite praised, saying:

"Obviously, Neymar has different skills, he is a player who can make a magical moment.

"Other players are still getting to that level, and I hope they get there. So yes, we do miss Neymar, he has a great creative power, so we miss him, but we see that there are players that can take the opportunity. Let's enjoy this win."
