Áfter their first match I didn't think Brazil could be stopped. Obviuosly, I was wrong. This result gives new hope to teams like Spain and Ghana. If the czechs could tie Brazil, these two teams with superior firepower could, perhaps, beat Brazil.

czechs were lucky a goalie tackle was not called for penalty...other than that, brazilian played an indoor soccer style at the offense and still able to prove it can penetrate defenses if it wants to.

"I thought we played very well, but the match was 0-0 for a reason: we just couldn't get through the Czech defence. What I will say is that we came here to play good football and can come away from this game with our heads held high," Rogerio Lourenco, Brazil coach.
