He said that the players now play better as a team and that it is harder for opposition to stop them. Continue reading “Brazil can win world cup”

Carlos Tevez has managed to secure a £ 30 million per year contract with Chinese super league clubs if rumours are to be believed.


He will be making the move from Boca Juniors, leaving Brazilian Robinho as the most prominent asset in South American football. Robinho’s contract comes to an end in just over a year. However, Santos have revealed that they are optimistic about signing their former player.The former Manchester City, Real Madrid, and AC Milan forward currently represents AtléticoMineiro.

Keen to change this element, the club are expected to make some significant investment in the transfer window. Continue reading “Robinho on the WishList of Santos for 2017”

Neymar to give up captaincy

Brazil and Barcelona forward Neymar has reportedly told his coach Tite that he will be surrendering the captaincy of the team.


He said that it was a pleasure for him to having led the team, but he feels that it will be better for the team that another player is given the role.

Neymar has successfully led Brazil to a first gold medal at the Olympic Football tournament where they managed to beat Germany in the penalty shootout. This was the first gold medal that Brazil has won at the Olympics, and it was a very important one especially after their disappointment at the last World Cup.

Neymar and his teammates were keen to erase the hurtful memories that the Brazilian fans have experienced at the last World Cup, and they did it in brilliant fashion by beating a German team that humiliated them at the last World Cup.

However, Neymar has stated after the tournament that he does not wish to remain as the captain of the team and that it will be better for him that he is replaced. Continue reading “Neymar to give up captaincy”

Dunga will stay as Brazil coach despite poor form

After a meeting with the Brazilian football confederation, it has been decided that Dunga will remain in charge of the Brazilian sides for both the Copa America and the Olympics.

A poor run of form has suggested that Dunga might be replaced at the head of the Olympics team so that he can devote himself entirely to the senior team.

Brazil’s technical director GilmarRinaldo has stated that the meeting was just a routine one and that there has been nothing new that has been discussed. He added that Dunga will go to the end of his contract with the Brazil national team. Continue reading “Dunga will stay as Brazil coach despite poor form”

Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud believe they should have signed an attacker

Arsene Wenger right now is shaving a love-hate relationship with the supporters of Arsenal as the French manager managed to sign Petr Cech. Even at his 33 years of age, Petr Cech is one of the highest rated goal-keepers in the world and the defensive department of the Premier League club has benefited from signing this top notch player.

Petr Cech made a disastrous mistake during his opening match as a player of Arsenal when facing off with West Ham United on August 9 but the Czech shot-stopper has been trying to bounce back and indeed has done it. Cech made an unbelievable performance against Liverpool which helped Arsenal keep a clean sheet and collect 1 point.

The veteran player is expected to continue improving and helping out Arsenal. Even with the awful debut performance that Petr Cech made, it hard to deny the fact that he still continues being one of the best players in his position in the world of football and that Arsene Wenger made a superb signing. Continue reading “Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud believe they should have signed an attacker”

Brazil have always been required to play beautiful and attractive football

Brazil have always been required to play beautiful and attractive football, but national team boss Dunga had his hands tied for the recent knockout match against Venezuela in the Copa America.

Without the team’s star striker Neymar, the coach decided to opt for a pragmatic approach to the game. Brazil managed to please a lot of fans after reaching the quarter-finals by beating the opposition 2-1 with goals from Thiago Silva and Roberto Firmino. Brazil looked to be comfortably reaching the next stage of the competition before Fedor’s late goal raised to some hopes for Venezuela but they disappear quickly.

Dunga has claimed that winning is more important than playing attractive football. Neymar will miss the rest of the tournament – even if Brazil reached the final – after being given a four match suspension for his inability to control himself in the 1-0 defeat against Colombia. Brazil qualified for the knockout stages despite this defeat. After having overcome Venezuela in the first knockout round, they will take on Paraguay in the quarter-finals. Brazil are amongst the favourites to win the tournament, but the lack of Neymar has brought back memories of the painful exit in the World Cup 2014. Brazil lost back-to-back matches without their talisman striker in this competition. Continue reading “Brazil have always been required to play beautiful and attractive football”

Neymar alone is carrying the weight of the current Brazilian team

The experts and analysts are saying that Neymar alone is carrying the weight of the current Brazilian team and his exclusion would weaken the team to a significant extent, but, Ze Roberto thinks on different lines.

According to the 40-year old Footballer, who is not active in the international circuit now, Neymar is very popular all over the world and thus, he would always be in the sight of everyone. People would follow him and talk about him all the time and it’s also a fact that he has been performing wonderfully well for Brazil, but, apart from him, the Selecao possess some other good players as well and there is no reason why the team can’t win at a big stage even in his absence.

Ze Roberto reckons Brazil has found a good balance following the World Cup and it has got to do with the way Dunga has worked. There must have been a temptation to make the wholesale changes after that thrashing that the team received at the hands of Germany in WC, but, the incoming manager remains very sensible. He did not fire everyone. He knew he needed a bit of experience as well in his ranks to be able to build a new team.

Felipe Scolari as best replacement of Dunga

When Dunga was chosen as the successor for Felipe Scolari after a very poor World Cup, many eyebrows were raised at this decision largely because Dunga is a manager who favours pragmatic football more than attacking football.

The football style of the former World Cup winning captain was heavily criticised before he was replaced by Mano Menezes. Dunga has worked extremely hard in order to overcome this reputation when he took over after the World Cup. Since he had especially come in at a difficult time for Brazilian football, Dunga says that the pressure was extreme as well. Continue reading “Felipe Scolari as best replacement of Dunga”
