My Brazil Starting 11 into 2013

December 28, 2012



Let’s be honest, these are grim times for the Selecao.

Currently positioned at 18 in FIFA’s ranking, Brazil have never, ever, sunk this low before.

Sure, FIFA’s ranking system is something of an insignificant puzzle (are Brazil really worse than Greece? Ecuador?), but the truth is that such low placement still hurts – I mean, the English are placed at 6th! C’mon!

And Brazilians cannot avoid the fact that the beautiful game belongs very much to the Spaniards these days.

Felipe Scolari is back in charge (God, Menezes was awful), and he’ll indeed need a great deal of ingenuity and innovation in order to pull the squad back together and escape sheer embarrassment on home soil in 2014.

Thus, without further ado, here are the lads I’d call up right now if I were in Felipao’s shoes – it’s a mix of experience and energetic youth =

GK: Cassio (Corinthians)

RB: Maicon (Man City) // Danilo (Porto)

CB: Thiago Silva (PSG)

CB: David Luiz (Chelsea)

LB: Marcelo (Real Madrid)

DM: Paulinho (Corinthians)

DM: Hernanes (Lazio)

RAM: Ramires (Chelsea) // Lucas Moura (PSG)

LAM: Oscar (Chelsea)

RF: Leandro Damiao (Internacional)

LF: Neymar (Santos)


And there you have it.

May the Gods help us.



PS – I miss Dunga…
