The horror

The horror

Brazil’s Olympic side take on Denmark in a crunch match in Salvador. The Brazilians were woeful in the scoreless draws with South Africa and Iraq but a win against Denmark will see them through. If Brazil draw, they’ll need Iraq and South Africa to draw their game and then hope to qualify on number of goals scored.
Thiago Maia is suspended. Rodrigo Dourado or Wallace should come in. Luan may start in place of Felipe Anderson.
