    Nice to see Jonas given another shot, I prefer him to Fred…although it looks as though Hulk isn’t going to be given a chance since Menezes thinks he can’t be a center-forward.

      HUlks goal scoring record speaks for itself, the kid needs to be given a chance especially considered what he did in Portugal and Europe last season

    The coach must be guided by the following facts;
    1) there must be a prolific striker in Brasil national team before they can win any match, the present strikers are not good enough
    2) there must be a free kick specialist presently none is in the team
    3) a good goal keeper must be available but now ceaser (inter goal keeper) is not good enough.
    consider the likes of RonaldInho ,Ronaldo, Cafu Bebeto,Romario etc
    if Brasil cannot replicate such stars they should forget winning 2014 world cup which they are hosting thanks

    why is ronaldinho not part of this squad? Is this present coacha trying to say that lucas leiva,a player lacking creativity in mid-field, better than ronaldinho?
