Ganso motivated to fulfill his potential at Sao Paulo

Dunga has selected six players who ply their trade in Brazil in his first Selecao squad since returning to the helm of the national team.

It was not long ago that Neymar and Paulo Henrique Ganso, the two artists at the heart of the Santos Meninos da Vila ("the Boys from the Vila Belmiro") side that won the Copa do Brasil in 2010 and the Copa Libertadores in 2011, seemed joined at the hip. Ganso, just 21, was the midfield schemer, strolling moodily around the pitch in the style of a languorous Zinedine Zidane, conjuring up the bullets for his partner in crime, that Artful Dodger of the footballing jeitinho Brasileiro, Neymar, to fi...

Scolari's mixed return to the Mineirao

New manager Dunga named his first squad since replacing Luiz Felipe Scolari after Brazil's disappointing World Cup.

Just over six weeks later, Luiz Felipe Scolari returned to the scene of the slaughter.

On July 8 he was in charge of Brazil as they fell to that astonishing, humiliating, historic 7-1 defeat to Germany in the World Cup semi final in the Mineirao stadium in Belo Horizonte. On Thursday night he was back, this time as coach of Brazilian side Gremio on their visit to take on Cruzeiro, who play their home matches in the Mineirao.

Scolari was welcomed back with open arms by the fans of Gremio, a c...

Belo-based trio define Dunga's Selecao

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol and Shaka Hislop discuss Dunga's squad selection for Brazil's upcoming friendlies.

Following the dispiriting hiring of former player agent Gilmar Rinaldi as technical director and the underwhelming return of Dunga as national team coach, Brazil's brave new dawn has so far shone as brightly as a 40-watt bulb. Given such straitened footballing circumstances, the announcement of the first "Dunga Redux" squad yesterday was met with general, if somewhat lukewarm, approval among the Brazilian media.

If the exclusion of 13 players from the squad that turned everybody else's "Cop...

Could Coutinho boost Brazil?

ESPN FC's Stuart Holden, Paul Mariner and Alexi Lalas preview the upcoming season for the Reds and debate whether they can be title contenders.

Like millions of other Brazilians, Philippe Coutinho must have felt horrible while watching the Seleção get blown to smithereens by Germany in the last World Cup.

The irony here is that the drubbing at the Mineirão may have contributed to a change in Coutinho's fortunes for his national team: Since that horrendous night in Belo Horizonte, supporters and the media in Brazil have invariably mentioned the Liverpool man as somebody manager Dunga cannot overlook in this time of picking...

Brazilian football's refusal to evolve

The ESPN FC crew are joined by Sporting KC's Matt Besler to discuss the success of preseason friendlies and continued growth of the MLS.

An article in Sunday's version of Lance! -- Brazil's sports daily -- examines a potential problem for the long-term growth of Major League Soccer: the salary cap system and the consequent difficulties of producing and retaining high-level homegrown talent.

The mere existence of the article is in itself significant. It was the column dedicated to international football; normally one might imagine that it would deal with the kickoff in the French league or the Community Shield curtain raiser to th...

Paulinho still an enigma for Spurs

If I had a wish for this past World Cup, it wouldn't have been to see England's Steven Gerrard lifting the trophy at the end of the tournament (it was a mere wish, remember, not a full-blown miracle).

No, what I wanted to happen was just for the benefit of Tottenham, rather than that of my fellow countrymen. I simply wanted Paulinho to have a great tournament for Brazil.

As we all know my wish came nowhere close to coming true, but back at the start of the competition it didn't sound so unre...
