@FPLReaction’s (Louis) comments

Brazil were relentless offensively. Brazil also defended quite well and were unlucky to concede their goal. Although defensively good, there does seem to be a lack of offensive potential amongst their backline. The return of Neymar has made a significant impact towards their creativity and goal threat. There could even be potential to double up on the Brazil attack moving forward.
