Brazil wins back fans

Brazil has managed to win back their fans by winning the gold medal at the Olympic football tournament.


This comes after their disastrous campaign at the last World Cup where they were humiliated by the German team on their home ground. This time, they managed to beat the same country in the Olympic final and win their first ever gold medal at the Olympic tournament.

Although the Olympic football tournament does not have the same prestige as the World Cup, it will be a boost to the fans morale after their poor World Cup campaign. In a country where people breathe football, it is important to win a football tournament, and this is what the national side did in the Olympics.

Now fans will be hoping that the good form will be translated to the senior team and that they can have a good World Cup qualifier. There are currently trailing the leaders in the table, and they will want things to change in the next round of matches. They will be looking again towards Neymar to inspire them on the pitch, and they will be hoping that they can get a good run of form. Read more »

Hulk is looking to make an impression on his national manager Dunga

Hulk is looking to make an impression on his national manager Dunga with a good show in the games versus the Costa Rican and the American team for which he has been included in the squad.

It’s the first time in his career that Hulk will be playing under Dunga.

Hulk was in Brazil’s World Cup squad too last year and although he was not at his best in the tournament as many of his teammates, he had managed to retain his place in the first squad that Dunga announced after taking charge.

But, he had to pull out from that squad due to injury and was being overlooked after that.

He has received the call up again and this time around, he is keen to establish himself.

Post a gruelling practice session last evening, the 29-year old was quoted as saying, “You have to grab your opportunities especially when you are from a country like Brazil where so many wonderful talents keep popping up.”

“I believe this is my time and I need to make sure I make the most of it and show what I have got to offer.” Read more »

Brazilian football has provided yet another export to the European league

Brazilian football has provided yet another export to the European league after teenager Nathan Allan de Souzahas, or simply Nathan, has joined Chelsea from Atletico Paranaense.

It has been reported that a number of top European clubs like Barcelona and Manchester City were also interested in signing the 19-year-old. However, it is the Premier League champions who have managed to win the race for the highly rated youngster. Nathan has not yet proved himself at the top level, but it has not prevented Atletico Paranaense from claiming a £ 4.5 million transfer fee for the youngster.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho claimed that they then will not be joining up with the Chelsea team immediately next season. Instead, he will be sent out on a couple of loans spells in order to help his improvement. Only a few players have managed to establish themselves in the Chelsea team after moving on loan, but the examples set by the likes of Courtois will be a source of huge inspiration for Nathan. He said that it was a huge delight to join a big club like Chelsea, who already have a number of Brazilian players in their ranks. The likes of Oscar and Ramires will help Nathan settle at Stamford Bridge. Read more »

Gremio lost their third match

Gremio lost their third match in four and it has raised the pressure on manager Luiz Felipe Scolari, who had just returned to the team after a forgettable spell with the national team.

Scolari has come under a lot of criticism from the club’s supporters, but Marcelo Oliveira says that he is confident that results will turn positive in the coming weeks. Given their quality in the squad, Gremio were expected to be in with a shout to win the title. As it is, the club will fail to make it to the next round if the league finishes right now. Gremio are 10th in the table after having taken just six points from the opening five matches.

The club has lost some crucial players like Marcelo Moreno recently, and Oliveira reckons that this is starting to take a toll on the team. Aside from losing strikers, the club also does not have a strong complement of defenders. Scolari is expected to get the team playing with a back three formation for the next match against Passo Fundo in order to compensate for the lack of top-quality defenders. There is hope for stopping this rot with a win against Passo Fundo. The opposition have not won in the last three matches and will be lacking in confidence just as Gremio. Read more »
