Brazil vs Croatia by Tullamore
Brazil had a successful preparation period and so did Croatia, but i cannot say i was impressed by any of these teams. I was actually disappointed watching Brazil against Serbia. That was the last friendly game for the Brazilian side and i was shocked of the lack of creativity of the team. I mean, that noone seemed capable to play box-to-box or even cut the Serbian defending line, using his skills.
Serbia has not the best defense in the world and i guess that Croatia is somewhere close to their neighbors' status, regarding their style and their approach to the game.
In my eyes, i feel like Brazil will have problems at the opening game. There were no many times, watching one-two or more than 2 players co-operating during the game.
I guess that Brazil will have to raise its chemistry game by game at this tournament, if it wants to meet the expectations.
I think that the refs are going to favourite the hosts in general. Of course i have no indication, it is just my thought. So, following this scenario, i think that Brazil might need a "push" tomorrow. Maybe a penalty, maybe a red card.
Plus the fact that FIFA's urges the refs not to hesitate at all and show cards, in order to control the game.
Pick red card at the game.
