Brazil coach Parreira bars the 'magic' word

RIO DE JANEIRO, Oct 13 (Reuters) - Brazil coach Carlos Alberto Parreira says he does not want to hear the word magic again in the run-up to the World Cup.

After the world champions completed the qualifiers with a 3-0 win over Venezuela on Wednesday, Parreira said he would keep his ultra-attacking line-up with four out of Robinho, Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, Kaka and Adriano.

But he said he would not be calling it the 'Magic Quartet', the name favoured by the Brazilian media.

'The word magic is not part of our vocabulary,' Parreira told reporters after the game in Belem.

'We're not getting involved in this sort of talk. I want to hear words like efficiency, productivity, winning well, sweat, perspiration and talent.'

Brazil, who finished top of the 10-nation South American group with 34 points, ahead of Argentina on goal difference, will arrive in Germany as hot favourites.

As well as reigning world champions, they are holders of the Copa America and Confederations Cup while a Brazilian club, Sao Paulo, are holders of the South American Libertadores Cup.

Even with seven months to go to kickoff, Parreira has virtually settled on his line-up which is likely to be the one which started Wednesday's game: Dida; Cafu, Juan, Lucio, Roberto Carlos; Emerson, Ze Roberto, Kaka, Ronaldinho; Adriano, Ronaldo.

This means that, for the time being, Real Madrid's Robinho will have to sit on the bench along with other players such as Juninho Pernambucano, who would walk into any other national team.

'Other teams have problems deciding who will be picked, we have problems deciding who will be left out,' said Parreira. 'Some very good players will miss out because we can only take 23.'

He added: 'There's not much to do. We've got two games in November, which means two training sessions, one game in March and 15 days of preparation, which we will use as usefully as possible.'

Parreira said his final choice for Germany would be based on an assessment of Brazil's 18-match campaign which lasted two years and one month and began when Rivaldo was still a regular and Kaka a mere hopeful.

'For me, the qualifiers were great, I claimed my place in the team,' said Kaka.

Among the players on the fringe of a place in the final 23 are Fenerbahce midfielder Alex, who was recalled for the final two matches against Bolivia and Venezuela after nine months out of the squad.

Others uncertainties include midfielders Gilberto Silva and Renato, Real Madrid's Julio Baptista, plus Gustavo Nery and Gilberto, the two candidates to be Roberto Carlos's reserve.

'I think I played well, I did what Parreira asked and I was satisfied with my performance,' said Alex, a substitute in both games. 'I've taken part since the start and I think I deserve to be included.'
