Ask Braazil, how important is the Olympic Gold? I am a Braazil fan and it doesn't affect me in the slightest that Braazil has never won an Olympic Gold. Water off a ducks back. Brazil should concentrate on the WC in Brazil 2014 otherwise teams like Italy could catch up, they are only 1 behind. Would Braazil like that? GET SERIOUS BRAZIL, OR YOUR 5 STAR STATUS WILL GO VERY SOON. SORRY TO SAY THAT BUT NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE. Brazil too casual, may live to regret it. 11th in the rankings. Very sad to see.

Hope Mexico makes it past Japan although I think Japan is a great team and can definitely defeat Mexico. But I think that Japan is a tougher game than Brasil. I’m not saying that Mexico will beat Brasil either, all I’m saying is that Mexico has to play better to beat Japan, than they do to beat Brasil.
