    Germany are the current world champions.

    But suppose we could have a rematch of the 2002 world cup final replacing the 2002 German side with this one. Who would win?

    This was Brazil team from 2002:
    GK 1 Marcos
    CB 3 Lúcio
    CB 5 Edmílson
    CB 4 Roque Júnior
    RM 2 Cafu (c)
    CM 8 Gilberto Silva
    CM 15 Kléberson
    LM 6 Roberto Carlos
    AM 11 Ronaldinho
    CF 10 Rivaldo
    CF 9 Ronaldo

    I think the front three would cause real problems from germany defence and I could see them exploiting the high line Germany play. However, I think they could exploit Lucio and Edmilson relative inexperience( I think they both started playing for Brazil in 2000) but I think Cafu and Carlos would be crucial to their success in both departments and they will be needed to be solid defensively but also provide an attacking threat.

    However, I am not sure how Brazil central midfield will cope with the three in midfield from Germany so that could be a deciding factor.

    I concur, for Brazil I do worry that Cafu and Roberto Carlos would be so far forward, they'd leave gaping holes for Germany to exploit. But with that Brazilian front 3, it could be over in the opening few minutes.

    The problem is if Roque Junior plays then its over so we'll assume he's on the bench (worse defender than David Luiz if that is even possible).

    Would they get past Neuer though?

    The three legendary Rs at front will finish the Germans off by half time.
