From the Coach

Analysis from the coach: “To play in the Brazilian team is not a matter of just skill, it is a matter of commitment. And it’s not me who say so, it is the group.”
Brazil coach Dunga


Brazil, who has qualified for 19 consecutive World Cups and has the most tournament wins with five, once again will be poised to make a deep run in South Africa, especially after having already experienced success on the same grounds last summer by winning the Confederations Cup final against the United States.

The Samba Kings has amassed a total of 64 victories, 14 draws and 14 defeats in 92 games played, including a 19 game unbeaten streak between June 2008 and October 2009.

Selecao head coach and 1994 World Cup winner, Carlos Caetano Bledorn Verri, better known as Dunga, played for Brazil side in three editions of the global showpiece, and is fully aware that any outcome other than a sixth world crown will likely be considered a failure. The 46-year old Brazilian had already experienced the pressure and emotion that come with playing for Brazil before he took over the helm in August 2006.

Being on the losing side in Italy 1990 and then captaining the side to a victory on US soil in 1994. However, this will be Dunga’s first coaching role in the World Cup.

Many critics attacked his lack of experience, but after victories in the 2007 Copa America and the FIFA Confederations Cup 2009, along with an impressive qualifying run to South Africa, many of those criticisms have been quelled.

A lot of the focus on Brazil’s 2010 World Cup squad fell on the absences of Ronaldinho and Alexandre Pato. Although no one expected Pato to be in, a few held out hope for Ronaldinho. But as his form dipped so he did his chances of making the side. After the excess of the stars undermined Brazil’s Germany 2006 campaign, Dunga took over with the following philosophy – big names might win matches, but groups win titles.

He has worked on that basis ever since. Every decision has been taken with the collective good in mind. Still the Brazilians are stacked at every position and have a ton of superior talent, starting with Real Madrid superstar Kaka in the midfield and deadly attackers such as Luis Fabiano and Robinho at striker.

Providing steady hands in between the pipes should Brazil’s tireless defense shut off for a second, will be Inter Milan goalkeeper Julio Cesar. Bet on Soccer at Sportsbook.com

Brazil finished their qualifying campaign on top of their group, after recording nine wins, seven draws and two defeats, clinching their South Africa berth with three match days to spare.

The Samba Kings started a little soft with successive goalless home draws against Argentina, Bolivia and Colombia, but got on the rails tallying up five wins in a row including and a 3-1 defeat of arch-rivals Argentina in Rosario.

As always the Brazilians will be the overall favorite, living up to the common quip about football –“The English invented it, the Brazilians perfected it.”

The last time Brazil did not win their Group outright was back in the 1978 World Cup. That year they finished the first round tied with Austria at four points apiece, with the Austrians given the edge because of more goals scored.

But since that time the Brazilians have been unstoppable, posting an incredible 20-1-3 in Cup play.

I expect that trend to continue as the Selecao march their way into this year’s finals.

    despite ma being a great supporter ov da samba boys, the 2010 world cup might prove a menance and we might not disregard the likes of the elephants since they are also big as their name suggests and also the portuguese who assume dat brazil is like their son due to the colonial factor
