Confidence or stupidity. Time will tell. At least he knows his starting eleven has been playing together anyway. He has a lot of options on the bench. Hopefully, we will see the young players still playing in Brazil in the team. My team of choice for the world cup this one.

Brazil will always be Brazil this country play's for nothing but a win,so maybe they can win it unless they come up with the attitude of telling themselves that they will win it.Coz the minute you tell your self that something is yours then kubakhona iqembu okanye I country ezothi ngeke kwenzeke njengokuzitshela kwenu bese kujika izinto.
