One of the leaders of the Palmeiras squad in recent years, Raphael Veiga made his debut for the Brazilian national team in a 2-1 defeat against Morocco on Saturday. After the match, the attacking midfielder pointed out the lack of teamwork within the team, but asked the team to look ahead.
“It’s very difficult to say what I missed, it’s my first time here. There are so many new players. When you go to a game against a team like this, already connected and trained, such an atmosphere, it’s normal that the team doesn’t to be like a team that has been training longer. It’s more about this issue,” he said.
“We worked during the week, I’m sorry for the result and there is a great responsibility when wearing this shirt. We mustn’t regret it. We must look forward,” he concluded.
Veiga started his second spell at Palmeiras in 2018 and, especially after the arrival of Abel Ferreira, in 2020, he has gained prominence. Since then he has won two Paulista Championships (2020 and 2022), two Libertadores (2020 and 2021), one Recopa Sudamericana (2022), one Brazilian Championship (2022) and one Super Cup (2023) with the club.
Now, the Brazilian team has no new commitments scheduled. The next FIFA Date is scheduled for June 12-20.
