I think Neymar and Hulk are deadly on the wings and pretty much the best wing play in the world(Hulk is a bull) but I wouldn't call them the favorites. The new crop of players are new and inexperienced and I don't think they have the mental strength or willpower(as cheesy as it sounds) to beat Spain, Italy or Germany.

A well disciplined team with a very good midfield can get by them easily I think.

Mexico looked like shit. No possession or build up play whatsoever. They need to find some playmakers.

Maybe I'm alone on this, but I think this is one of the worst Brazilian teams I've ever seen.

The only chances Mexico were able to create was through the counter attack. The penalty won by Gio was a bit lucky and Pirlo should have won the penalty in the first half.

Hernandez looked like a scrub for the most part and the dude has no game other than finishing in the box. I've been exposing the player for what he is for years now. There was a play(i think in the 1st half) on the counter where he had a wide open teammate striding to the box but instead hernandez takes a long shot which softly ends up in the hands of buffon..

Gio Dos Santos looks like a playmaker but of course we all know he's a bust.

Heurelho GomesTottenham (ENG)
Alexander Doni Roma (ITA)

Defenders
Maicon Inter (ITA)
Daniel Alves
Barcelona (ESP)
Gilberto Cruzeiro
Michel Bastos
Olympique Lyonnais (FRA)
Lucio Inter (ITA)
Juan Roma (ITA)
Luisao Benfica (POR)
Thiago Silva
AC Milan (ITA)

Midfielders
Gilberto Silva
Panathinaikos (GRE)
Felipe Melo
Juventus (ITA)
Kaka Real Madrid (ESP)
Julio Baptista
Roma (ITA)
Josue Wolfsburg (GER)
Kleberson Flamengo
Elano Galatasaray (TUR)
Ramires Benfica (POR)

Forwards
Robinho Santos
Luis Fabiano
Sevilla (ESP)
Nilmar Villarreal (ESP)
Grafite Wolfsburg (GER)

Yep, that was probably an all-time low, especially when factoring in the coach. This current one is not much better, though.

2-0. Easy match so far. Excellent play by Fabregas and Soldado with the nice strike.

Man some shameful theatrics going on in this game. Stop the crap and just play already.
Edit: 78% first half posession? Wow.
