      Magnus – you’ll have no problem getting a ticket for the Palmeiras x Atlético game – there might be more demand for the SP x Flamengo match, though i doubt it will sell out – you can just turn up at the stadium for both games or take a look here (though tickets for the matches you want are not on sale yet)

    i hope the coach is aware that he is preparing his squad for world cup2014 and so he should start narrowing down his selections. He should learn from dunga who used the whole time he has to scan but at the end he could not deliver. The present coach can not afford to loose the world cup2014 the brazilians will not forgive him. He should remember 1958 world cup final, how many life was lost when brazil lost.A word is enough for the wise

    I hope this is the last time Mano changes the squad. I would rather prefer he sticks with the squad that beat Ghana,then just add Kaká to that squad,and then Brazil will be sorted. But its probably because the other overseas-based players are playing in the UEFA champions league.

    I like this idea, ALL Brazilian clubs! You play in Europe? Stay there!
