    Oscar deserve to wear no10! very intelligent kid. He is the future of brazil. When I saw him play he remind me old days of Ronaldinho and Kaka.

    Oscar is the heart of young Brazil team. If he can controlled the Brazil midfield-Neymar, Damiao etc will shine. Kaka carry on injury, Brazil need one pure attacking mieldfielder and they got perfect no 10 Oscar now.

    Oscar is Brazil hope. Everybody hype up Neymar but in my opinion Oscar is much better then him. Oscar is that kind of midfielder who can change the face of game. Hopefully Brazil get their first Olympic trophy. Good luck all the samba boys 🙂

    Oscar is a right player to wear no 10 jersey. he deserve the respect. Brazil young team is so talented, i’m confused who’s their best player.

    Brazil is the factory of the talent. I’m happy with the Oscar performence. He really did well for Brazil. After Ronaldinh and Kaka, he is the right person to replace them and wear no 10. I wish very best luck for him. I want see him at Chelsea.
