USA vs Brazil by Dajkula
Still, the presence of Hope Solo, Rachel Buehler, Christie Rampone, Heather O’Reilly, Sydney Leroux , Alex Morgan , Abby Wambach should be enough to deal with the very young and unexperienced Brazilian side. Brazil has a couple of familiar faces like midfielder Rosana and attacker Cristiane while most of the other players have less then 10 caps to their name. Almost all the players come from the Brazilian league and most of them from the club Ferroviaria. That could be an advantage in a way but I just can`t see them dealing with the quality USA has. The Brazilian coach is building a new team and in the future they could be on top but that shouldn`t happen today.
The odds are not great but are realistic for a home win.
