    Oh and Pato = not as good as Fred. And Damião = definitely not as good as Fred. People think he should be in the team just cos spurs thought about buying him once, even if they've never seen him play! Next people will be asking why Ganso didn't make the squad :rolleyes:

    What? Ganso's brilliant and seems to be getting over his injury problems, he still has every chance of becoming one of the best players around

    He's doing alright so far this year. He's still nowhere near the wonderkid he was hailed as, and still nowhere near the squad this year, which was my point.

    Maybe if he stays injury free and can get back to his best, he could make the 2018 squad.

    Maicon started the quarter final, the semi final and the 3rd place playoff.

    Brazil don't have a problem with experienced players, we have a problem with lack of talent. It's easy to include experienced players in your squad when they're as good as Schweinsteiger and Klose. The players you mentioned for Brazil would just be a complete waste of a squad place. Ronaldinho is nowhere near good enough - nowhere near -, Robinho sucks and Kaka is on his way to chilling away his twilight years at his hometown club.

    People in Europe have this tendency to remember the names that WERE good a few years back and wonder why they're not in the team, without looking at present performances. Fred plays well in the league. He played well at the confed cup. But most of all, it's simply that Brazil has no better options!!
    That's the problem. You can't simply select all the players that perform well in the league. Someone like Klose was nominated for his experience rather than performance in the league. Players like Kiessling and Lasogga were far better in the Bundesliga, but the experience is more important here.

    Yeah, it's a balance (and one that is made much easier when your experienced players are as good as Klose is). I don't believe that Brazil's poor performance at the world cup had much to do with that balance though.

    The thought of Damiao in the Premier League is very funny but makes me wince a bit.
