Casemiro has been superb under Erik ten Hag at Man United since his move from Real Madrid over the summer.
Former Manchester City player Pablo Zabaleta has praised “brilliant” Manchester United midfielder Casemiro ahead of Brazil’s quarter-final clash with Croatia.
Casemiro has been one of his country’s best players during the World Cup, as Brazil continue to flex their muscles heading deeper into the competition. It is clear to see why they were tipped as the pre-tournament favourites, with the Selecao boasting a vast array of jaw-dropping talent.
Although their attacking options steal the headlines more often than not, Casemiro has been instrumental during their time in Qatar. Head coach Tite is expected to pick the United midfielder once again when they take on Croatia, as the 30-year-old continues to keep the likes of Liverpool’s Fabinho on the bench.
