    Mano Menezes is he select a team like this and what he is trying to prove.There only 2 years left for world cup and even now he couldn’t able to settle a team with consistence performance.There is no need of Fabiano because much more good strikers left that he need to bring back like Robinho.Brazil have some talented and bright youth players but need some experience players to lead them to the right path that should be the midfield position not striking zone while there is Neymar, damiao, pato,hulk and Robinho.but its time to work with the midfield and Ronaldinho and kaka will will be the best choice.Brazil now have some great defenders so no tension now we have the best quality defense.

    hi, I’m Jhepson at this moment I think there is no need to fabiano in the team, but usually we assisted at a big and better attack with neymar, robinho, damhiawo, hulk. we’ve two years until the world cup, it’s not time for try but take a decision. and kaka ronaldinho need to make those return in that team.

    I’m so proud of M.Menez for calling Fabiano in the team because He works hard to make his return in the team and he make it. He also one of the best forward in the Brasileiro Série A. I believe that he will give his best in the field like he used to do.
    Keep up Menez because you are doing a good job so far and i think that you will give brazil a sixth world cup.

    M.menez had no way out since champions cup is going on…the star rated players are playing both their league games and champion’s cup matches…Oscar, dani Alves had their match last night, marcelo, hulk, maicon ect had their match the day b4…look at argenting they havent got any star rated player too…I think Menez chose a good line up for the match, However Neymar, Lucas and Fabiano is there on the attack..lets see wht hapens 😀

    Has Menez lost his mind bcoz he has selected an entierly new and inexperienced squad players and only for the brazillian league rather he must have had choosen some experienced players like Nene who had been outstanding. he must choose the likes of experienced players like Kaka, Ronaldinho, Marcelo.
