Video: Martinelli shines for Brazil in impressive World Cup qualifying win

Arsenal forward Gabriel Martinelli could well be in contention to play at the World Cup in Qatar at the end of the year after impressing for Brazil during the international break.

The winger has been in fine form since breaking back into the fold this term, and his impressive performances haven’t gone unnoticed by Brazil boss Tite, who brought him into the squad to take on both Chile and Bolivia, in matches that both finished 4-0.

Martinelli is yet to find a goal for his country, but did impress in his performance, and narrowly missed the target after bullying the defence with a fine skilful move.

Should Martinelli keep up his fine form of late, he will surely be a great addition to the Brazil squad when they head to Qatar at the end of 2022, and he could well earn a starting role for their side when he gets further opportunities in the coming months.

    1. Exactly. Once he has that in his locker he will be unstoppable on the left wing… just ask Trent Alexander, he’s injured now after being run raged by the little Brazilian.

      Saka & Martinelli have both wings secured. Øde has CAM his, just leaves Smithrowe out of the side but in my opinion could do as good a job as Laca in a False 9 Role if needed. Not a bad thing to have to come off the Bench.

      Pepe would be another but I think he’s leaving in the summer, awel good luck to him just never worked out. I wonder if Benfica would have an interest in him? Swap with some money for Nunez as they are asking crazy money. That’s a CF the go after the young man Gakpo for £33m (€40m), his agent has spoke to Arsenal apparently.

      Pepe, Laca, Nelson & Eddie – Gone
      Nunez & Cody Gakpo – IN
      (Balogun on loan for 1more season)

      Bring back Saliba, Defence sorted, maybe a RB needed then onto the midfield.

      Elneny, Matteo & Possibly Xhaka to leave and go get Teilimans to help Lokonga cover the position to fill along side Partey.

      Nunez, Gakpo, Teilamans and a returning Saliba would have us in a strong position for next season with or without Champions League football.

  1. Going into possibly the most significant season we could anticipate for some time with only one recognised striker, bold Sean

    Gakpo plays in Martinelli’s position doesn’t he?

    Neither proven in English football, bolder still

    Martinelli reminds me of Theo in his early Arsenal days and Carlos Vela a bit as well

    Loads of potential still and could well have a very good Arsenal career

    1. God help us if MARTINELLI ENDS UP AS BOTH THOSE FLOPS DID. Walcott a decade plus long idler and Vela a bit player only.

      But fortunately he is made of far sterner stuff and is a warrior, unlike “keep out of all trouble and danger Weed Walcott”.
