    I have been watching a lot of Brazilian soccer especially in 2011 and the best rightback in brazil right now is Bruno of fregueirense he wears the #2 jersey and I would say he is as good as dani Alves right now and I am looking at him both defensively and going forward.but I haven’t seen my favorite central midfielder in renan oliveira who played for brazil at the south American u20 tournament in 2009 that’s the closest player I have seen to compare zidane he has amazing close control and a first touch under pressure what do you think.

    I am writing this a bit after the fact, but I still feel the same way about this. I want Ronaldinho to start playing for Brazil again! Come on ‘Dinho…start playing better haha!
