Fans attending Brazil - Denmark lament absence of stars
Brazil have arrived in Germany without the Santos trio of Neymar, Ganso and Rafael, Barcelona's injured star Dani Alves or any of the older, more recognisable names of the Brazilian game.
"My son wanted to see Neymar," one fan told Globo Esporte. "He hasn't travelled, right?"
The response to Ganso's absence was fairly similar: "Does he ever play? What's the matter with him? I've seen his goals on the internet, but I read he is always getting injured."
The fans are out in force, though, with many supporters coming out for both sides in the German city.
