Kaká takes the applause

In their final game before the World Cup, Brazil breezed past Tanzania thanks to goals from Robinho (two), Ramires (two) and Kaká. Azziz scored for the opposition: the first goal Brazil had conceded in 596 minutes. The South Americans came through the test unscathed. Only first choice keeper Júlio César was missing after picking up a knock in the match versus Zimbabwe.

Dunga’s men start their World Cup campaign on 15th June against North Korea in Ellis Park stadium, Johannesburg.

    It does not seem as if there as much pressure on this Brazil squad from the international media (the Brazilian media always puts pressure on the seleção of course, but that is a given), yet Brazil seems to be considered the favorite for the World Cup this year. Why is it that in 2006, when almost nobody picked against the Brazilians to win the cup, there was so much pressure on them, yet in 2010, the pressure seems to be on some other teams? (Again, this is different from what you may be hearing down in Sampa, but here in the United States much of the talk is about Spain, Argentina, and England)

    Good point mike, also think that this squad is almost identical to the side of 1994 where the squad didnt seem as gifted as in 2002, and 2006! repeat performance on the cards?

    Is it true that Andre Reberio from Santos has gone to Dyamo Kiev. if true this is really side as i was hoping he would find his way to a western europe club like a Sporting Clube or Getafe

    • 10. pitacodogringo  |  June 25, 2010 at 07:59

      he went for around 8 million euros and signed a five year contract

    Portugal-brazil. most boring game of the world cup so far?
    i would be happy if england could play like that but for the neutral supporter its terrible.

  • 12. Daniel Powell  |  June 25, 2010 at 15:10

    Definitely up there as most boring! disappointing really they where both through could portugal not have a go at brasil to try to win the group rather than sit back all game! basically showed that with no robinho and kaka the selecao cant break a stubborn defensive side down.
    anyway job done second round….
