June 25: Portugal 0 v 0 Brazil – the biggest sheit.
My goodness! What a huge sheits of a match. I probably spent a lot of dollars texting my brother all my curse vocabulary.
Our midfield was plain boring and numb. Julio Batista, Felipe Melo, Gilberto Silva and Dani Alves (Brazil’s surprise card) left the ability to create decent plays somewhere very far from the pitch. Nilmar did a great job up front and Luis Fabiano, isolated, was a dim light. I had to pay attention to realize Maicon was also playing. It is amazing how a weak midfield crashes the entire team – today was a perfect example of that.
Yeah yeah yeah, both teams had already qualified, it was much of a friendly match, yada yada. No excuses. I felt a bit ashamed and angry. And Portugal was not far from Brazil’s level as well – except with some good counter attacks. C. Ronaldo was a charmer (on the negative side of the word), doing a lot of nothing and trying to look good.
The bottom line is: Brazil does not have a bench – whatsoever! With Kaká and Elano out, the creativity part was left to Lucio (!!!), the amazing defender who was also saving Brazil’s ass n the back all the time.
Brazil now plays Chile on Monday back in Johannesburg for the Round of 16. Maybe they will weak up.
Meu Jesus que merda de jogo!
