Brazil’s strategy for 2026 World Cup unveiled by Dorival with Vitor Roque in the spotlight

Dorival Junior, a 61-year-old coach from Brazil, was asked during the press conference before the match against Spain at the Santiago Bernabéu this Tuesday at 9:30 p.m. (TVE 1) about a player who is not part of the team, but has already played for the national team. This player is Vitor Roque, a 19-year-old forward from FC Barcelona. The coach advised not to rush his adaptation to Spanish football.

“He is currently adapting, just like Vinícius and Rodrygo. We shouldn’t hurry him. We need to monitor his progress until the 2026 World Cup, support him, and not put pressure on him,” he explained.

Vitor Roque has participated in eleven games under Xavi Hernández since joining in January, nine in the League and two in the Cup, but only started in one. He has made the most of his playing time, scoring two goals in victories against Osasuna (1-0) and Alavés (1-3), with the latter game resulting in a red card.
