Brazilian championship set to suffer again due to a crowded calendar

Cruzeiro won their fourth title last season but Brazil's calendar means they, and the fans, could suffer in 2015.

The Brazilian Championship kicks off in just over a week's time, on May 9. With the best 20 teams in this giant land playing each other home and away until early December, it is the country's most important club competition.

But if the reader of Lance!, Brazil's sports daily, sifts through the paper in search of the opening day fixtures, he or she will not find them. This is not a criticism of the paper; after all, they have just 24 pages to cover the world of sports. Rather, it is a condemnation...

The performance of Memo Ochoa on Tuesday versus Brazil will have likely caught the attention of many top European clubs.

Pele acknowledges that last year's World Cup was a "disaster" for Brazil but is not surprised how quickly the likes of Oscar and Ramires have bounced back in the Premier League this season.

Brazil were humiliated by Germany in a 7-1 semifinal defeat and the hosts were then thrashed 3-0 by Netherlands in the third-place play-off.

Pele scored 77 goals in 92 games for Brazil and won the World Cup three times, but the former Santos striker still finds last year's capitulation difficult to understand.

Ze Maria hits out after being sacked twice by Ceahlaul Piatra Neamt

Ze Maria celebrates after scoring for Inter 10 years ago this week.

Former Brazil and Inter Milan full-back Ze Maria says he had been "taken for a ride" by Romanian club Ceahlaul Piatra Neamt, accusing their president of branding the players "slaves" and threatening not to pay their wages before sacking him, twice, last week.

Ze Maria knew that his second dismissal in a matter of days was definite when the club's Italian president, Angelo Massone, presented him with an airline ticket back to Italy.

"There had been talk of a long-term project and wanting to build...
