Brazil x Uruguay: Dorival reveals why he had no players in the penalty shootout and explains Rodrygo’s departure

The coach was “astonished” by the athletes

Dorival Júnior was not in the circle of players before the penalty shootout of the match between Brazil and Uruguay, this Saturday (6). The match led to the elimination of the team from the Copa América and Celeste will face Colombia.

According to the coach, he did not participate because he had spoken individually with the athletes. After defining the five batters, the coach discussed with the players the penalty training.

— I stayed away because I was telling everyone what I had in mind. Once the five starting positions were defined, I started talking about what we had trained. Training, in fact, that took place from the first day in Orlando. We worked on penalties because we knew that we would probably have this possibility in the definition of the match — said Dorival Júnior, after Brazil’s defeat against Uruguay.

One of the key players of the Brazilian team, Rodrygo had to be substituted in the second half of the match. The reason was Nández’s violent attack on the player, who was unable to recover.

— Rodrygo, unfortunately after the missed expulsion, could not stay on the pitch any longer, at a certain point he had to leave. He was one of the scouts. But also those who came in were very well trained and able to help. It is natural that the rhythm is unique, it ends up happening. Someone should make a mistake for a team to come out victorious. Unfortunately in the end we were disqualified — concluded Dorival.
