      Welcome Brazil, Tanzanians are eagerly waiting to see you.
      Please ignore this imbecile Owl calling us strange opponents!
      this is what he said “strange opponents, wouldn’t you say i mean surely a better warmup would have been to play a half decent side” as if him/herself is decent. We forgive you, if you wish to see the match please contact me I may buy a ticket for you.
      Welcome BRAZIL enjoy the true African hosipitality in this land of Kilimanjaro, Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Zanzibar! Karibuni

      What is a “better” warm-up? I think the Brazilians are wise, they are playing the kind of opponents that they will face in the championship in the same environment. It doesn`t have to be the actual team.

    Well come Brazil! Its real funny to see you in our peaceful country with lot of attractive staffs. But as a fan of Brazil team, I am real not so much pleased with leaving Gaucho in the squad! But any way Brazil will win the world cup this season with no doubt!
    Its me the real Brazilian fan, from Tanzania.

    what a pointless game, might as well just have a training match on african soil then bother with that.thought they could have at least played a side that didnt quite make the world cup. like croatia or russia?? least maybe grafite can score 5 against tanzania, take the positives!!!

      That sound like a myopic and jealousy statement. I think the Brazilians are wise, they are playing the kind of opponents that they will face in the championship in the same environment. It doesn`t have to be the actual team.

    I’d say they don’t want to expose the players on a hard match, playing against second level opponents will give a chance to the coach to fine tune and won’t put the team at risk of injuries or embarassment.

      i don’t follow Seríe B too closely.
      it’s still early days but coxa are unbeaten in four and have won the last two so they might be on a run. let’s see what happens tonight against Ponte (should be three more points for your boys). as there are no real power houses in the second division, there’s no reason why Coritiba shouldn’t come straight back up.

      as for your chums, Atlético Paranaense, they are real candidates for the drop.
