Many,like the Brazilian soccer legend,Pele,is worried that the young Brazilian team may be negatively affected by the overwhelming pressure put on them to win the World Cup.
I happen to disagree with this. Since the commencement of the FIFA Confederations Cup, these youngsters have been under pressure to beat every team in the competition.
During the Confederations Cup, the team’s average age was only 22years. During the competition they showed the World that they do not easily succumb to pressure by winning all their matches and humiliating the current World Champions, Spain, by 3 goals to nothing.
From where I stand, Brazil is ready for this World Cup and they have the material needed to go all the way to the finals. They have hyped-up the fans that are behind them all the way, and these fans will serve as the 12th player for Brazil.
Do you think Brazil will lose due to overwhelming pressure?
