On Thursday, Brazil take on the United States in the Loftus Versfeld Stadium in Pretoria. Brazil narrowly beat Egypt 4-3 in their opener on Monday. The US lost 3-1 to Italy.

After a long season in Europe, the recent World Cup qualifiers and a large amount of travel, some of Dunga’s squad have been complaining of fatigue. With this in mind, the coach may make changes for the match vs the US. One player almost certain to sit out is centreback, Juan, who asked to miss training on Wednesday.

Brazil possible line-up: Julio César, Daniel Alves (Maicon), Lúcio, Juan (Luisão/Miranda), Kleber (André Santos), Gilberto Silva, Felipe Melo, Elano (Ramires), Kaká, Robinho, Luís Fabiano

Kick off: 11:00 (Brasília) 15:00 (London)

      a rough translation of Michelle’s comment – i want to know something – leaving it to the last minute of the game is never good. you don’t know how we feel. you should score at the beginning so we suffer less
