I disagree not because his royal laziness, because like I said before this is a team where only Neymar is supposed to shine. Just imagine Felipao telling Rivaldo in wc2002 to just play as a winger and GTFO from Ronaldo's way; that is what he is doing with Oscar.

I don't think you can blame Scolari for building the team around Neymar. Even, when Neymar was wide the offense was going through him. This tactic which I happen to dislike of Neymar central and Oscar wide seems to be because he wants Neymar to have a free role with less defensive responsibility. Carlos kinda of did the same thing with C. Ronaldo.

I was discussing this over the match. What happened with the 2009 U20 team.

Actually in attack (and creative midfield) there's almost 10 years of failed brazilian projects. In this WC Adriano should be in his farewell WC but still being dangerous, Pato should be on his prime as best CF in the world, and Neymar should be the new upcoming talent not the biggest hope.

Oscar and Neymar are great players, but they're kids, they shouldn't be carrying the burden.

Aránguiz pk is the best pk ever. And Sánchez was a beast in this game, perhaps best game I've seen of his. Vidal was also great till he was too tired. Its just a shame we lost Chile so early.

Bielsa wouldn't defend a game to the end like that.
Bielsa would've lost this one 3-0. He's too stubborn. I think he's great, but he lacks flexibility in tactics. Sampaoli knows how to adapt to his rival's game perfectly.

Don't even need to go that far

It's a very different starting 11 from Copa America

I can't remember how penalties in a shootout work.... Pretty sure they don't count towards your "official goal tally" right? They just go towards the determination of the result right? Forgive my stupidity

Brazil staff 'punched Pinilla'

Quote:
Media claim Chile and Cagliari forward Mauricio Pinilla was punched in the face by a member of the Brazil staff.

The incident is said to have happened during the half-time break of Saturday’s 1-1 draw, which the Seleçao eventually won on penalties.

Brazilian paper Globoesporte insists the director of communications of the Brazilian Federation Rodrigo Paiva punched Pinilla.

Chile director Maria Jose claims it was caught on camera by FIFA crews and demanded an investigation.

Globoesporte also questioned Paiva, who said he was really trying to reach Chile assistant manager Sebastian Beccacece and the punch on Pinilla was an accident.
