Dunga's side have built a reputation for their speed on the counter-attack, a strength they were unable to demonstrate in their opening Group G match against Korea DPR, who set out to defend in numbers and keep the five-time champions at bay.
On paper, Brazil now face tougher group matches against Côte d'Ivoire and Portugal, but Gilberto feels that could allow his team to play with greater freedom. "There is a difference when you play against the biggest teams, they go for the game, they want to win also and then that opens the game up," he said.
"That creates more chances to score. Some small teams play all behind the ball. But I'm not sure if North Korea will play against the other teams in the group in the same way that they played against Brazil."
