Brazilians look at future prospects in US friendly

August 10th, 2010

Brazil coach Mano Menzes

New Brazil coach Mano brings back only four World Cup players for a Tuesday friendly against the United States, his debut in the job after taking over from Dunga.

Santos striker Robinho, AC Milan defender Thiago Silva, Barcelona defender Daniel Alves and Benfica midfielder Ramires will be joined by 10 new players as the South Americans look to the 2012 London Olympics and 2014 World Cup.

AC Milan forward Alexandre Pato, Santos playmaker Neymar, Liverpool midfielder Lucas and defenders Rafael da Silva of Manchester United and Marcelo of Real Madrid are among the newcomers being touted as the top of the next generation of superstar talent for the five-time World Cup champions.

The Netherlands ousted Brazil in last month’s World Cup quarter-finals, sparking Dunga’s exit and a call for more flair from the Brazilians. (more…)

Brazil planning sober samba party with alcohol set to be banned for 2014 World Cup

August 8th, 2010

Sobering thoughts: There will be a party in Brazil - but will it may be a dry one

Brazil 2014 is set to be the first alcohol-free World Cup after organisers confirmed sales will be banned at games under anti-hooligan laws.

None of the 12 stadia which will host matches will be allowed to sell drinks because of violence which cost 42 lives in 10 years to 2008.

The ban was imposed in April 2008 by the Public Ministry, which represents Brazil’s magistrates.

World Cup organising committee director Rodrigo Paiva said a law change, which magistrates have pledged to fight, would be needed if stadia asked to sell alcohol.

State governments in Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Pernambuco, where games will be played, also have local rules stopping sales, and minimum jail terms for offences were added last week.

Budweiser has paid £32million to be an event partner, though their beer will still be advertised at stadia and sold at fan zones.

Despite the ban, trouble still occurs, and a fan died in February as 14 were shot when Sao Paulo and Palmeiras fans clashed.

A fan was reported to have had his hand blown off as he tried to detonate a home-made bomb at the game.
