  1. It’s incredible how much gusto the fans and players sing the Brazilian national anthem. You’d never see that with the England national anthem.

    The Gaffer

  2. This Brazilian side is poor by this country’s lofty standards…but, they are hosting next summer so they are a lock in to get at least to the semi-final…

    Heck: if they don’t get to the semis, who would?

    We all remember the most criminal enterprise in the modern history of the World Cups whereby South Korea was catapulted to the semis in 2002 thanks to shocking refereeing v. both Spain and Italy in the elimination rounds…

    I am sure the refs would come big for Selesao when it matters next year…
