‘We’ve Learned from 2014’ Insists Paulinho
Brazil midfielder Paulinho says that the team have learned from their ill-fated 2014 World Cup campaign, which saw them humiliated by Germany in the semi-final on home soil.
Paulinho is one of a handful of surviving players from that campaign, but he says the players left over have learned their lessons.
“What we have done is put the past to one side. We have greater confidence. From the way things are going for the Brazil team at the moment, it is clear that confidence is better.
"Brazil are better prepared in a number of ways. That is just part of football. In four years you learn a lot of things."
