    Wow … the brazil money line just fell from -182 to +178 … has there been an unexpected change in the Brazil starting XI?

    hey, could you tell me if the old Denilson (ex Betis player, wc 2002) is still active?

    • 4. pitacodogringo  |  January 18, 2011 at 13:28

      He’s now a presenter on a sports show on Bandeirantes TV in São Paulo.

      his last club was Kavala in Greece. he signed a contract with them in January 2010 but never played for them

        thanks for your answer! So this perhaps mean Denilson’s career as an active football player is over, huh? It’s a shame, he was such a good dribbler…

        I have several more questions if you don’t mind:

        1.) who are top 3 goalkeepers in Brazil league in your opinion?

        2.) what happened to a promising goalkeeper Bruno (i think he played in flamengo)?

        3.) are there any other brazilian keepers (other than R.Ceni) that can score goals from penalties or FK?

        4.) are veterans Edilson and Luizao (from WC 2002) still active?

        5.) what’s your opinion on yougsters Giuliano Victor de Paula and Alex Sandro?

        6.) do you know anything about Leandro Luz? I think he was playing in Vietnam with Denilson in the past.

        7.) is Bruno Ferreira Bonfim (dentinho) really that good as people are saying? Like that he’s the next Robinho.

        8.) Where does the “old” blonde Marcelinho play? He was one of my fav brazilian players in his best years…

        Love your blog, btw. Keep up the good work!

        adding to what Rógerio said:

        3. Ceni’s actually on 94 according FIFA and 96 according to São Paulo who’ve just added two more goals from a friendly played in 1998 – other scoring keepers are Vitória’s Viáfara who’s got three i think, and Tiago Antônio Campagnaro ex portuguesa, vasco and now at Bahia who’s scored a few

        5. we did a video feature on Giuliano and other potential stars here

    wow i’m so happy to find this blog. I love Brazilian and Argentinian football. What do you think are Brazil’s chances in this under 20 Copa?

  • 8. Rogério Penna  |  January 18, 2011 at 22:03


    – Victor (Grêmio), also called INVictor by the fans
    – Fábio (Cruzeiro)
    – Jefferson (Botafogo) is pretty good too

    – So you have not heard about Bruno? He is in jail. He had an affair and the woman got pregnant and had a kid. She started blackmailing him for money, rights, etc, so Bruno killed her with the help of some friends. It seems they threw parts of her body for rottweillers to eat. Gruesome. A huge scandal. He will never again play football, thats sure.

    3) a few others, but none as Ceni. Btw, he scored his 100th goal this weekend.

    4) Luizão last clubs were Guaratinguetá and Rio Branco (small clubs from the paulista league). He didnt play any match for them. In 2010, he start a career as an agent, being directly involved in the transfer of Deco to Fluminense.

    Edilson still works with football (probably agent of some young players), has a band and a studio.

    7) Dentinho has quite a different style from Robinho imho.

    8) old blonde Marcelinho? You mean the “died” blond Marcelinho Paraíba? He is playing in São Paulo. If I am not mistaken, scored a goal last weekend.
