Mano Menezes

Brazil take on Holland in the estádio Serra Dourada in Goiânia on Saturday. The starting line-up is yet to be confirmed but in Brazil’s last training session, Mano Menezes set up his team with Robinho, Neymar, Fred all up front.

Brazil are unbeaten in 20 games on their own turf (14 wins, 6 draws). Paraguay were the last team to beat Brazil when they pulled off a 1-0 win in August 2002 in  Fortaleza.

Mano Menezes has been in the Brazil job for twenty months but remarkably this is the first time he’ll be leading his squad out in his own country.

Brazil (confirmed): Julio César, Daniel Alves, Lúcio, Thiago Silva, André Santos, Lucas Leiva, Ramires, Elano, Robinho, Neymar, Fred
Coach: Mano Menezes
Netherlands (probable) Krul, Van der Wiel, Heitinga, Mathijsen, Pieters, De Jong, Affellay, Kuyt, Van Persie, Robben, Huntelaar
Coach: Bert van Marwijk
Officials: Carlos Amarilla (Paraguay), Rodney Aquino (Brazil), César Franco (Brazil)
Date: 4 June 2011
Kick off: 16:10 Brasília 20:10 London

    Dispite the selection of the national team (Brazil) am certain that the coach should have selected HULK because of his current form. Thats wrong for him not to ignor him.
