Casemiro will captain Brazil for first time

Casemiro will captain Brazil in their World Cup qualifier against Bolivia on Thursday.
The Real Madrid midfielder will wear the armband for the first time in his international career, becoming the 12th captain of the Selecao since coach Tite’s appointment in June 2016.
Since his first match against Ecuador, Miranda and Dani Alves have both worn the armband twice, while it has also been handed to Thiago Silva, Marcelo, Filipe Luis, Fernandinho, Renato Augusto, Coutinho, Neymar, Paulinho and Robinho.
“It’s an immense pride for me to be captain of the national team,” Casemiro told the press at Brazil’s Granja Comary training complex on Tuesday.
Casemiro has become a vital part of Tite’s new-look Selecao, which has seen the five-time world champions turn away from a recent history of employing a double-pivot to shield the back-four.
