Brazil opened their Olympic campaign by stuttering to a disappointing 0-0 draw against South Africa in Brasília last night.
Brazil tumbled out of the Copa América last night, their first group stage elimination in the tournament since 1987. The Seleção only needed a draw against Peru to top the group, but conspired to lose the game in controversial circumstances, as they fell 1-0 to Ricardo Gareca’s young side. The result surely leaves Dunga’s job hanging by a thread. During his second reign at the helm of the Brazil side, they have struggled in their World Cup qualifying group and been consigned to embarrassing exits at consecutive Copa Américas.

Whether Brazil would defeat Haiti was not the question for Dunga and the Seleção in Orlando. The barometer for a satisfactory evening would always be set by the margin of victory and the panache with which it was achieved. In both respects, the manager and his team passed this examination with flying colours. It is true that Haiti are among the weakest sides in the competition, but they had only conceded six goals in their last 5 outings.

Dunga is also correct to say this might be the toughest CONMEBOL qualifying round yet.
Gabriel Paulista has been in England for over a year now. Since the New Year, he has forced his way into the Gunners starting eleven ahead of Per Mertesacker.

Paris Saint Germain’s Brazilian captain Thiago Silva thinks his ex Milan teammate Alexandre Pato can be a good signing for Chelsea. Pato joined Chelsea on loan from Corinthians in January and has yet to make his debut, as he still searches for fitness.
In 2014, Brazil, who were the favourites to win the competition for the fifth time in their history, fell short of the football world’s expectations.
After an 18 month campaign trail of auctioning Alexandre Pato to European clubs, it looks as though Corinthians are edging closer to shedding the 26 year old forward from their wage bill. Having been hawked to the likes of West Ham, Sunderland, Liverpool, Spurs and Arsenal without avail, it looks, astonishingly, as though Chelsea will be the club to bite on Timão’s bait. But can this transfer work?
