Brazil Team for World Cup 2010

The five-time world champions and the most popular team all over the world, Brazil goes into every tournament expecting to add another star to their famous yellow and green jersey. Coached by former Brazilian defender Dunga, the Samba Kings, the only team to qualify for every single world cup finals will looking to take home their sixth trophy as anything lesser than that will be considered a failure, back home in Brazil.

Brazil qualified for the FIFA World Cup on top of the Group, with nine wins, seven draws and two defeats. The Brazilian team has been known to have the most voracious supporters, and have been subjected to a torrent of abuses for failing to perform as per expectations against Argentina, Bolivia and Columbia all of which ended in draws at home. Brazil was back to what they did best from April 2009, winning five games in a row including a 4-0 thrashing of Uruguay and a 3-1 defeat of Argentina in Rosario which confirmed their berth at the FIFA World Cup 2010.

With a team filled with players from the best clubs around the world, none of the players need special mention as they all hail from football’s favorite nation. Between the posts are the safe hands of Julio Cesar who more than makes up for the poor defense that has been Brazil’s Achilles’ heel for a while. Real Madrid’s Kaka is the man to watch out for in the Brazilian team known for his uncanny ability in being at the right place at the right time to score for the Samba Kings. Striker Luis Fabiano and Robinho are at the extremely popular Brazilian front line with the former scoring five goals in the qualifiers.

A Seleção is coached by the 1994 World Cup winning Brazilian Captain Dunga who is one of the most experienced, having been blamed for Brazil’s exit from the World Cup in 1990 and then being lauded for his efforts in steering the team to victory in 1994. Despite critics doubting the abilities of the former Brazilian skipper, Dunga has proved his worth guiding the team to a victory at the 2007 Copa America, the FIFA Confederations Cup 2009 and taking the Brazilian national team to the top of the table qualifying for the 2010 World Cup to be held at South Africa.

Brazil has played 92 games at the world cup of which they won 64, drew 14 and lost 14, winning the tournament five times.
