Brazil 3 - Ghana 0 - Brazil don't look very fluent

Brazil defeated Ghana 3 goals to nothing in their 2nd round match and Ronaldo became the leading scorer in World Cup competitions - his tally now reads 15 goals. That is the only positive that came out yesterday's game against Ghana. Ghana, who were the undergods, played like champions but were really unlucky to score any goals - some of them were wonderfully saved by the Brazilian goalkeeper Dida, some were hit wide from close range etc. In short, the conversion ability of the Brazilians saved them on this day but it won't be enough because they now face France, who are on a upswing after their come-from-behind victory against Spain.

My take on the game:

  1. Brazil completely missed Robinho, out due to a thigh injury sustained during practice. He was a dynamite in the field in the last match, setting up many goal-scoring opportunities in the last match. His replacement Adriano was a pale shadow of him.
  2. Brazil was completely playing in one zone - in the center. They were not passing the ball around as they normally do - i guess, the fact they were a goal ahead and soon 2 goals ahead, caused them to relax and hence, went into a defensive mode. But this won't work against stronger opponents such as France or Germany.
  3. Their star for the day was indeed Dida, who brought up some wonderful saves and saved some purely by luck - but then thats what goal-keeping is all about.
  4. Ronaldinho needs to strike some form - he does show some glimpses on and off but he needs to do that for the full 90 minutes - he is the game maker and Brazil depend a lot on him.
  5. Brazil players need to be a little less-selfish - there were a couple of easy chances yesterday that could have been converted had the player passed it to another player instead of taking a shot at the goal. Again, this could have been as a result of being ahead in the goals against Ghana - nevertheless, this could prove costly against a stronger team.
Brazil now face France in the Quarter Finals and going by what I have seen so far, they have a tough battle ahead !

Go Brazil :).
