Marcotti: Can Brazil be fixed?

Copa America
 By Tim Vickery

Lucas Lima could be the all-action midfielder Brazil have been missing

Lucas Lima, right, has emerged as a beacon in the Santos midfield, and there are hopes that he can replicate that form for Brazil.

Brazil coach Dunga made some controversial decisions when he named his squad to face Costa Rica and the USA in the coming warm-up friendlies. Some of the controversy has since died down, especially since Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho, the most surprising omission, was given another chance after Chelsea's Oscar pulled out injured. Marcelo of Real Madrid is another late inclusion, recalled at left-back following an injury to Filipe Luis of neighbours Atletico.

Thiago Silva, though, remains out....

Coutinho, Silva absences mark Dunga's latest Brazil roster

Orlando City head coach Adrian Heath admits he'd rather have Kaka in his side, but is delighted that the Brazilian has been recalled to play for Brazil.

The road to Russia starts here. After the laboratory of the Copa America, the September friendlies are the last chance for fine tuning for South American countries before the 2018 World Cup qualifiers get going a month later.

And Brazil, fresh from the failure of the Copa, are first out of the blocks, with Coach Dunga naming a fascinating squad for the matches against Costa Rica and the United States.

Unsurprisingly, there are several changes from the group that he took to Chile in June. Two...

Ronaldinho debuts for Fluminense and shows a glimpse of his former genius

Ronaldinho's much-anticipated debut for Fluminense passed with little fanfare but a key contribution.

RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil -- "How many today, Joao? Thirty thousand?"

"They said 40 on the radio. Fifty, even. Everyone will want to be there."

Two metro stops from the Maracana and there is an energy in the train carriage that cannot merely be put down to it being game day. The Fluminense fans are out in more force than usual ahead of the battle of the Tricolors against Gremio. Indeed, it's not just any match, for there is to be a special guest; a royal visit in footballing terms. Ronaldinho...

Rivaldo and son Rivaldinho keep it in the family in Brazil second division

Brazil legend Rivaldo created history when he first lined up with his son back in 2014.

Rivaldo scoring in the same match as his son for the club that helped launch his career may not have mattered as much as that overhead kick for Barcelona in 2001, his double in the 1999 Copa America final or scoring at the 2002 World Cup, but it was certainly special.

The former World Player of the Year recently decided to come out of retirement at the age of 43 to aid the ailing Mogi Mirim -- the club where it all began and the team he has been president of since 2008. It's also the place where...

An open letter to Luiz Felipe Scolari a year after Brazil's defeat vs. Germany

Luiz Felipe Scolari is still in football management but hasn't quite resolved what happened to Brazil in the World Cup.

It's been just over a year since Brazil crashed out of the World Cup in humiliating fashion but despite the Selecao having failed in another tournament since then, Fernando Duarte can't get July 2014 out of his mind. Nor can he get beyond the long-lasting repercussions of Luiz Felipe Scolari's tenure.

Dear Big Phil,

How the heck are you?

It has been ages since I last wrote to you. In fact it was exactly a year ago, when after being awake for almost 24 hours and after a journey that included...

Sergio Ramos' situation, U-21 lessons, Marseille misery, Inter spending

The ESPN FC crew discuss the continued Sergio Ramos rumours to Manchester United, but Steve Nicol does not feel Ramos is worth the cost.
The ESPN FC panel respond to your tweets on Arsenal's chances of winning the Premier League if they sign Morgan Schneiderlin and Petr Cech and whether Sergio Ramos is worth the cash.

Whenever a deal gets made, both sides walk away thinking they got a bargain. It's the whole point behind free markets. We trade, so we both can benefit.

Obviously, in the medium-term, we find out that this is often not the case -- that $40 million striker seemed like such a good idea at the time, before he scored two goals in 21 games and sulked his way through the season -- but what's crucial is that at the moment of transaction you can plausibly see how both sides think they are benefitting from...
