World Cup Football Boots: Brazil

Fifa Ranking: 1

Group: G

Path Ahead of the World Cup

Brazil didn’t exactly ‘Joga Bonito’ their way into the 2010 World Cup. The Samba Boys endured 7 draws, many of which were goaless. However, when the Seleção got going – they proved themselves unstoppable! Putting 5 past Ecuador and 4 past Uruguay and Venezuela the Brazilians regained their stride to qualify as leaders of the group with a goal difference of +22.

Key Players

Kaka and Luis Fabiano

What can we say about Kaka that hasn’t been said already? The Brazilian’s reputation precedes him as one of the greats of the modern game. Despite a tricky, injury-riddled first season with Real Madrid, Kaka is capable of creating goals out of nothing, as well as scoring them – the Galactico is the highest scorer in the 23, with 27 in 78.

Luis Fabiano is a name that has roared to the fore of world football. A good outside bet for the golden boot, Fabiano is capable of magic in the famous Yellow Shirt, scoring 2 to secure a win over the United States in 2009, to give Brazil the Confederations Cup.

The Gaffer

Dunga is a man with a vision of what he feels a Brazil team should be, and isn’t afraid of making unpopular decisions to fulill that vision. Decisions such a axing Ronaldinho from the squad sent a message to this generation of Brazilians; that he wants a more functional, tough to break down, less showboating Brazil to win the World Cup in South Africa.
