    Pulling out some big guns there. I’m surprised that Danilo made it. He never looked that impressive to me.

    hmm not many well-known names for me. (But yeah, I’m not brazilian)… By the by, where are Man United twins? And also, does anybody know what happened to that “wonderkid” Kerlon? U+Haven’t heard about him in ages! XD

      he’s had an injury plagued career going from Cruzeiro to Chievo, Inter Milan, Ajax, and back to Inter but has hardly kicked (or juggled) a ball in this period

    I’m happy 4 Coutinho because they call him in the squad. He’s really need our help. He’s a future Kaka.

    If neymar transferred in Europe it will be the best player in the world
