Is Mano Menezes waving goodbye to Brazil's chances of success in the Copa?

Brazil go into their final Group game in the Copa America in Argentina with just two points after with Venezuela and Paraguay. Coach Mano Menezes is expected to make at least two changes from the side that drew 2-2 with Paraguay. At right back, Maicon could replace Daniel Alves and further up field, Robinho should come in for Jadson. Menezes, though, has kept his cards close to his chest and may spring a few surprises before kick off. Brazil need at least a point to qualify for the next stage.
Brazil (possible): Julio César, Maicon, Lúcio, Thiago Silva, André Santos, Lucas Leiva, Ramires, Paulo Henrique Ganso, Robinho, Neymar, Alexandre Pato.
Coach: Mano Menezes
Ecuador (possible): Elizaga, Reasco, Araujo, Erazo, Ayoví, Noboa, Castillo, Arroyo, Mendez, Benitez, Caicedo
Coach: Reinaldo Rueda
Venue: Mario Alberto Kempes, Córdoba, Argentina
Referee: Roberto Silveira (Uruguay)
Date: 13 July 2011
