Juninho Paulista: More mobility means more chances for Brazil

The former international identified some positives after the World Cup hosts' disappointing 0-0 draw with Mexico yesterday.

Juninho told Lance!Net what he wanted to see more of - and less of - from Brazil in this tournament.

He said: "When Scolari's team plays with more mobility, they tend to create more chances. Subs Bernard and Jô in the second half made the Brazilian team faster and offered alternatives."

Juninho added: "Now, for the next games, the Brazilian players have to correct one thing: the tendency to fall in the area and ask [for a] penalty. Yesterday, Marcelo was pushed, but it was not enough for him to lose the ball. It was a golden chance. In details like these, we lose the chance to win or we miss a [group qualification] spot."
