Vinícius appears as the only Brazilian on the Golden Ball list, he surpassed even Neymar who is a frequent name in the awards. Despite his great season, the striker is not the favorite to win the award this time. That's because midfielder Lionel Messi stood out and was a protagonist in winning the World Cup title for Argentina.

There is a possibility that the winner will be unprecedented again.

Flamengo finished its preparations this Tuesday (16) to face São Paulo on Wednesday (17), in the third round of the Brasileirão. Varela and Wesley trained normally and are available to Tite for the match at Maracanã. With this, the coach can count on the right-back duo for the first time after eight games.

Tite led the last training session of Flamengo's preparations on Tuesday afternoon (16). After falling ill with a fever in Goiânia, Varela was removed from the game against Atlético-GO, but participated in the activities without restrictions. Wesley, vetoed from the debut after traveling to the capital of Goiás, also worked with the rest of the squad.


Varela and Wesley are once again options for Tite after eight games. This is because the coach last linked the right-back duo on February 25, in the 2-0 victory over Fluminense, in the tenth round of the Guanabara Cup. Therefore, since then, Flamengo has only had the Uruguayan available in most matches.


Wesley was the main reason for the full-back pair to be missing. The young baseman suffered two muscle injuries in a row and forced Tite to improvise in the sector. In this way, the coach adapted midfielder Evertton Araújo, 21 years old, to the position. However, left-back Ayrton Lucas also played on the right side at times.

With Varela and Wesley available, Flamengo will face São Paulo at 9:30 pm (Brasília time) this Wednesday (17).
