Brazilian coach Tite put pressure at his side to go triumphant in Copa América in 2019 in June and said that reaching the final should be his minimum goal.
Selecao will host the tournament for the first time in 30 years and expects to get the final after losing in the three previous competitions.
"Tite has high expectations and spoke to the friendly before Friday's friendly against Uruguay at Emirates Stadium:" We have to play very well, and we must win, we must be champions. At the very least, we must reach the end. And, before that, it has a good performance. Tell him because we live culturally in a country that lives soccer. "
Before 2007, Brazil would never have passed two Copa América tournaments successively without finishing at least the fourth or higher. Now they have failed to move in the quarterfinals in the last three tournaments and were eliminated in the 2016 edition of the group stage.
Tite, 57, replaced Dunga in command after this sad result, for the first time since 1987 that Selecao failed to move on the first lap.
The director is aware of the pressure on his shoulders and also insinuated in his future, adding: "I want to do my best in my daily work. I want to be the best version of me, I want to improve, give opportunities through my work. time that I have … I do not know. "
The selection of the player is always a source of debate for Selecao. The seven months remain until the 2016 Copa América and the Brazilian investigator Paulo Freitas highlighted a peculiar method that Tite plans to use to the tournament to improve his options:

Brazilian supporters expect trust from their manager at all times. Tite sought to boost morale and promote that confidence, but the expectations of running to the end will only increase under pressure.
The former coach of Corinthians and International also made an attempt to promote some young players in their time as coach of Brazil, such as the Gothic gem of Barcelona and Everton Richarlison, both.
Eight players from Tite's 23 men's squad have five or less chapters, but recently argued against suggestions that they will reward top titles with ease, by emitter Juan G. Arango:

Tite: "I am not rewarding the calls. I'm giving a player who has won it. In the case of Dedê, he has overcome many things to gain his position. Fabio is very talented, but I also have others that I can develop. #Dede # Fabio
Brazil disappointed again in 2018 FIFA World Cup In Russia this past summer and fell in the last eight, its third time going out at this stage in the past four World Cups.
His recent history in the Copa América was not better, but Tite took the position that eight-time champions should claim their place on the throne of South America or, at least, do so in Rio de Janeiro's decision-maker.
