Thiago Silva wants Brazil to play a "great game" against Cameroon
Brazil captain Thiago Silva has issued a rallying call to his troops ahead of the final Group A fixture against Cameroon this evening, telling them that winning is simply the most important thing, no matter how it may be achieved.
The AC Milan defender told a pre-match press conference: "We want to show that we are a cohesive, united team. We had some difficulties, but this is normal. We want to show that we don't fear commitment."
"We have much respect for Cameroon, but we need to make a great game in order to reach the next stage. We can not let them surprise us."
A win for Brazil would take them into the second round, almost certainly as group winners, where they would face the runners-up in Group B, either Chile or Netherlands; that section will be decided four hours prior to the end of tonght's game in Brasilia.
