Brazil x Bolivia: probable starting line-up September 2008

September 9, 2008 at 23:10 1 comment

As part of their World Cup 2010 qualifying campaign, Brazil take on Bolivia in the estádio João Havelange in Rio de Janeiro on Wednesday evening.

Bottom side Bolivia have already let in 20 goals in just 7 games. In 24 meetings with Brazil, Bolivia have won just once: 2-0 in 1993.

This should be an easy victory for Brazil but the Brazilians do have a habit of underperforming against weaker opposition.

Dunga is forced to make changes from Sunday’s 3-0 win over Chile. Centreback Juan is injured and is replaced by Luisão. Midfielder Lucas and leftback Juan come in for the suspended Gilberto Silva and Kléber.

Brazil should start like this: Julio César, Maicon, Lúcio, Luisão, Juan, Lucas, Josué, Diego, Robinho, Ronaldinho Gaúcho, Luis Fabiano

    Honestly i don’t like Ronaldinho game now. In my opinion, he is slow and lazy. Where was his fast penetration run and dribbling? I found that he lost it since he had the twice world best player name tag on him. He always stays on the left side of the pitch. When the ball pass to him, he always hold up the ball for too long and wait for others to create space for him. Doesn’t he realise that he can pass around and create space for others (like Riquelme or Zidane)?
