No way through against Venezuela

No way through against Venezuela

Brazil ended their WC qualifying campaign with a goalless draw at home to Venezuela. Dunga’s side played most of the second-half with just ten men after São Paulo’s Miranda was sent off. But with Paraguay losing at Colombia, Brazil finished as group leaders. Chile, Paraguay, Argentina, and Uruguay also qualified.

Brazil’s next engagement is a friendly with England on 14th November in Doha, Qatar.

    That is what i worry about. Brazil are too rely on Luis Fabiano and Kaka in attack. When they are in off form nobody seems capable to deliver. Ramires!? Nilmar!? I don’t think so. Perhaps the assitance of Robinho is solely miss. Lucas for me is too slow and soft. He needs more speed and aggresive. Miranda is clearly not up to standard yet. Hopefully Dunga will look for other options like Alex of Chelsea and David Luiz of Benfica. Other than that Filipe Luis played well. He can delivers good cross than Andre Santos. The next real test will be against England. We will see what is in Dunga mind then.

    Is Dunga the man??
    Results matter but do we like this new brasil, to many negative performances and wrong players being picked.Cant afford to make mistakes next year.
    Get big Phil back.

      contrary to popular belief, it’s results and not stylish football, that counts here in Brazil. as long as Dunga’s side are winning, he’ll be safe. if Brazil start losing too many games or draw matches that they should have won, the knives will be out for Dunga again very quickly.
      i’ve never been a big fan. Dunga, Mano Menezes, and Muricy Ramalho are all part of this wave of ‘effective but uninspired’ football. however, the three get results and even though it’s difficult to watch their teams at times, you have to acknowledge their ability to get the job done.

    Just because we lose a few matches doesn’t mean we should start doubting Dunga.

    He led us to 19 straight matches undefeated so we should respect his decisions. I admit it is very disappointing to see some of his choices and Brasil’s results against Bolivia and Venezuela, but the players knew they were already qualified. Lets hope that we can see the winning Brasil in November against England and keep up our good form for the WC.
