RIO DE JANEIRO, Aug. 22 (Xinhua) -- Brazil coach Tite said on Monday that he will try to convince Neymar to reverse his decision to quit as national team captain.

Neymar, 24, stood down as the Selecao's leader on Saturday after Brazil defeated Germany on penalties to win their first Olympic Games football gold medal in Rio.

""I said to Neymar that he should celebrate for now and worry about (the captaincy) later,"" Tite told a press conference here on Monday.

Neymar did not explain his reason for renouncing the captaincy, though it is believed his strained relationship with Brazil's media played a major part.

During a pre-Olympics news conference at Brazil's Terespolis training base, Neymar tersely fended off claims that his celebrity lifestyle could be affecting his football.

The 24-year-old has barely appeared before the media since, speaking only when forced to do so.

""Being a leader involves many aspects,"" Tite said. ""He (Neymar) is a leader on the pitch. There is also the aspect of talking in public. We will see.""

Tite said the captaincy could be rotated between Neymar and other experienced players such as Inter Milan central defender Miranda and Juventus right-back Daniel Alves.

Earlier, Guangzhou Evergrande midfielder Paulinho was recalled to Brazil's squad for their World Cup qualifiers against Ecuador and Colombia next month.

The former Tottenham Hotspur player has not represented the Selecao since the 2014 World Cup, but has impressed Tite with his form for the Chinese Super League outfit this year.

Real Madrid left-back Marcelo has also returned after being overlooked for the centenary edition of the Copa America in June.

Other Chinese based-players named were Gil (Shandong Luneng) and Renato Augusto (Beijing Guoan).

As expected, the 23-man squad includes Neymar, Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho and new Manchester City signing Gabriel Jesus.

Tite replaced Dunga as Brazil's national coach in June after the team's group-stage elimination from the Copa America.

Brazil will play Ecuador in Quito on Sept. 1 followed by a clash with Colombia in Manaus five days later.

The Selecao are currently sixth in the South American zone qualifying standings for 2018 World Cup in Russia. The top four teams will book a direct berth in the tournament while the fifth-ranked side will earn a playoff spot.

Brazil squad:

Goalkeepers: Alisson (Roma), Marcelo Grohe (Gremio), Weverton (Atletico-Paranaense)

Defenders: Gil (Shandong Luneng), Marquinhos (PSG), Miranda (Inter Milan), Rodrigo Caio (Sao Paulo), Daniel Alves (Juventus), Fagner (Corinthians), Filipe Luis (Atletico Madrid), Marcelo (Real Madrid)

Midfielders: Casemiro (Real Madrid), Giuliano (Zenit Saint Petersburg), Lucas Lima (Santos), Paulinho (Guangzhou Evergrande), Philippe Coutinho (Liverpool), Rafael Carioca (Atletico Mineiro), Renato Augusto (Beijing Guoan), Willian (Chelsea)

Forwards: Gabriel Barbosa (Santos), Gabriel Jesus (Palmeiras), Neymar (Barcelona), Taison (Shakhtar Donetsk).

ROME Rob Kelley Jersey , Sept. 26 (Xinhua) -- Would Germany's elections results affect the political equilibrium in Italy, the next European country to head to election in few months? Italian analysts and media mulled over the issue in the aftermath of the vote held on Sunday, which granted Chancellor Angela Merkel her fourth term in a row.

Merkel's conservative CDUCSU bloc remained the largest force in the parliament, with 33 percent of the vote. Nonetheless, it suffered its heaviest setback in decades.

An even larger defeat struck the major center-left party, the Social Democrats SPD, which dropped to 20.5 percent from 25.7 percent in the previous election in 2013. The two forces had been leading the country for the past four years through a so-called grand coalition.

As support for mainstream parties weakened -- as already registered in other countries within the European Union (EU) -- anti-immigration and euro-sceptic Alternative fuer Deutschland (AFD) party scored the best result ever for a far-right movement in Germany after World War II. With 12.6 percent of vote, it will enter the parliament for the first time as the third largest force.

Was the same trend likely to repeat itself in Italy, which was going to hold parliamentary elections next spring?

"I think the German vote may indeed affect the next campaign in Italy, in terms of more emphasis given on the need to reform the EU," Federico Niglia, professor of international relations and history with LUISS University in Rome, told Xinhua. "Each political force, of course, would address this issue according to its orientation."

Moderate, pro-European parties would push harder for a reform of some EU policies, in order to better address Italian citizens' needs and worries, Niglia explained.

Their solution for slowing down the populist wave among the electorate (Italian and European) would be to call for "more Europe", not less, but better functioning.

This position would be represented at most by Italy's center-left Democratic Party (PD), which was leading the current coalition government.

On the contrary, euro-sceptic (or simply anti-euro) parties would feel time has come "to give the final push" against the European Union, according to Niglia.

Strongest on this front would be Italy's populist Five Star Movement (M5S) -- currently the largest opposition force, and neck-to-neck with center-left PD in latest opinion polls -- and anti-immigration Northern League party.

The outcome of the German vote would possibly affect Italian parties' strategies in another way, leading business daily Il Sole 24 commented on Tuesday.

"A major topic will be the 'grand coalition', for which the two main German parties (CDUCSU and SPD) have paid a high price, a. Cheap Jerseys   Cheap Jerseys China   Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping   Cheap Wholesale Jerseys   Cheap Authentic Jerseys   Wholesale Soccer Shirts Free Shipping   Wholesale NHL Hoodies   Wholesale NBA Hoodies   Wholesale MLB Hoodies   Wholesale Soccer Hats
