Duarte: Reasons to cheer, jeer Brazil


Duarte: Five key questions for Brazil

CONCACAF presenting challenge to CONMEBOL on eve of Copa

Pele admits his son almost saw him cry after Brazil's 7-1 defeat to Germany in the 2014 FIFA World Cup semifinals.

Before Brazil's warm up friendly against Panama, Brazilian TVs pundits, former stars Junior and Casagrande, agreed that Dunga's team took the field with the obligation of winning by a big margin. A second minute goal hinted that this might be the case. But Brazil had to be satisfied with a 2-0 goal victory in a pleasing match which whetted the appetite for the Copa America Centenario.

The match in Denver ended up being of interest for two reasons:

One is the way in which Brazil approached the game....

Copa America Group B: Brazil, Ecuador aim for top spot, Peru looks to surprise

The ESPN FC crew respond to Jurgen Klinsmann's comments that the Copa America Centenario has more quality than the 'diluted' Euro 2016 field.

The Copa America is set to kick off, and while Group B might not boast the most marquee matchups, Brazil, Ecuador, Haiti and Peru will all be eager to earn a spot in the knockout stages. Here is what to expect over the next week-and-a-half in Group B.


It probably isn't fair to Ecuador, or even Peru, to say that Group B is simply "the group of Brazil" but there's no denying that a majority expects the Selecao to come out on top. Brazil, Ecuador and Peru will be joined by Haiti, the weakest...

Brazil face summer of tough questions: Copa without Neymar, Dunga's future

The ESPN FC crew respond to Jurgen Klinsmann's comments that the Copa America Centenario has more quality than the 'diluted' Euro 2016 field.
Dunga is under immense pressure this summer as Brazil boss. Can he bring home the Copa America title?

It sounds dramatic to say, but this summer will be one of reckoning for the Brazilian national team. Just a year on from their mediocre showing at the 2015 Copa América in Chile, the Seleção will attempt to redeem themselves at the special centenary edition of the competition. It's an opportunity to restore some much-needed belief at a major tournament after recent disappointments and to build momentum ahead of crucial World Cup qualifiers in September.

Yet circumstances have...

CONMEBOL sides largely bringing top players to 2016 Copa America

Which country will take home the Copa America this summer? The top nations are bringing strong teams to compete.

The countdown is on, all the final 23-man squads are in and the news is good.

Quite apart from its speedy organisation, there was always an element of risk about the 2016 Copa Centenario. The timing of the tournament is somewhat inconvenient for the South American sides; they all played a Copa America last year, the best six were at the World Cup 12 months previously and they are a third of the way through the marathon Russia 2018 qualifiers, with another third coming up later this year. There...
