    Robihno just recovered from injuries, He not yet get into shape and Man City starting line-up. He should not included in the team unless he prove his worth like others. Pato should be there over him. Agreed with Joel. Diego should be there over Baptista. Thiago Silva is a beast in AC Milan should there over Juan. David Luiz should be there over Naldo cause he can form a great understanding with Luisao. As for Josue and Lucas, sad and true they are really not up to the top class defensive midfielder yet.

  • […] Lucas and Aurelio have been included in the Brazilian squad more… (Congrats but no injuries […]

    Dunga i want to ask you what can of quality to you having as a coach when making selection.

    i cant understand why the milan due are not selected that is RONALDINHO, PATO AND THIAGO SILVA.

  • 4. MOMODOU BADJIE  |  November 9, 2009 at 12:19

    Dunga you are just doing what you want because you are having results. but please do select the players who are capable of wearing the the brazilian shirt.

    you know that you are winning matches but the brazilian style of play is lost since you came.

    please we need players like Ronaldinho, Pato, Diego, Anderson and Thiago Silva.

    yes,dunga you need to check thiago silva out in milan he is the best center back brazil has he plays with his heart like felipe melo please next time put him in you will get 200 per cent of him that is how he plays.

    It is really nice to see Hulk, Michel Bastos, Fábio Aurélio, and Carlos Eduardo called-up.

    Hulk will be nice to come off the bench later in the game and test him out. Michel Bastos is pure quality and will be interesting to see where Dunga plays him. Fabio Aurelio is extremely solid and my favourite Carlos Eduardo (GREMISTAAA) is on form.

    Should be a good match, I hope Brasil can dominate and show us some JOGA BONITO.

    A great fans of Brazil, I want Coach Dunga to put back big experince players like Ronaldinho, Pato, Diego, Anderson and Thiago Silva into the WC Squad.

    Hallo Thank you, I am very anxious & been waiting long to view Brazil vs England. Let’s give Dunga full support once again, and let’s give chances to new blood of up-coming matured and eager teenagers who already play abroad. I
    trust the selection.

    But MOMODOU BADJIE, forget about Ronaldinho he is no longer craving for soccer fame but night clubs, sorry to say so. I love him and adore him, and has been my best player since his Under 17 W/Cup.

    Don’t you guys forget, had England ever won Brazil ? ? ?

  • 9. Mohamed AL-AGHBARY  |  November 11, 2009 at 11:35

    It is great achievement that, we can view out our love of this game and learn or absorb other fans enthusiasm.

    Keep it up.
