Brazil to scout Roma’s Roger Ibañez ahead of World Cup

Andy Mattioli

Brazil are set to evaluate the performances of Roger Ibañez ahead of the World Cup later this year as the Roma centre-back is yet to make Tite’s definite list for the competition.

According to ANSA, Tite’s two trusted assistants – Matheus Bachi and Fabio Mahseredijian – are going to travel to Europe on August 20.

Bachi and Mahseredijian have been entrusted with scouting various Brazilian players including Ibañez, and are thus expected to make a stop in Italy.

The sports outlet reports that the two scouts will attend Roma’s away game with Juventus and use this as an opportunity to familiarize themselves with the 23-year-old.
