Brazil has a stellar team. With Oscar, Hulk, Neymar and Damiao they have a great chance for the gold. But they have problems in defence, and when Egypt understood that, they took advantage. Now Egypt, I'm really proud of. Especially Hegazi, I think he has great potential to be one of the elite defenders. I think he was doing an excellent job holding Neymar in the 2nd half. I hope Egypt gets a medal, they have the skill and the spirit to do so.
