It wasn’t just the altitude. You could tell during the game that Brazil players had to deal with two more problems in their game against Bolivia; the dry and… bumpy pitch, and a rather weird-looking ball.
Neymar didn’t let things pass without commenting, and posted something relevant on his Instagram account.
Inhuman to play in such conditions. Pitch, altitude, ball… everything very bad
the Brazilian wrote, after the Selecao’s 0-0 draw in La Paz.
But we are left happy with the attitude of the team, despite these conditions
the Paris Saint-Germain star also wrote, below a photo in which he and half a dozen other Brazil players, are using oxygen masks to deal with the problems caused by La Paz’s altitude.
Now we need to rest so that in the next match we can play another good game and score goals. Physically it takes a lot. Possession of the ball is in relation to the field. That wasn’t nice, but we can’t complain. You have to enter the field and play, to confront problems
Gabriel Jesus said, commenting he too on the condition of the pitch.
I felt a little tired – it’s normal. It’s the first time I played in altitude like this. To feel it, it’s normal. We managed to play, set the rhythm. Unfortunately, the ball didn’t go in today
the Manchester City player also said.
