Brazil Walk It (Well Ronaldo Does)

Brazil: 1 Croatia: 0 - not exactly a scoreline to strike fear into the hearts of Brazil's future World Cup opponents.

However, Brazil did walk it. Well, Ronaldo walked it until his substitution. Fearing the possible consequences of breaking into a light jog, Big Ron walked around a bit, had one shot (off target), walked around a bit more and then was replaced by Robinho.

In sympathy, Adriano tried the same approach but was forced to run - even sprint ! - on a couple of occasions so he managed to stay on the pitch a little longer.

Still, it was better than the France v Switzerland game. Not saying much, I know.

Not the game we expected, but still Brazil is the favorite team to win the Cup. Parreira is going to make the magic square work :p

I thought Brazil were quite awful, personally and they're going to have to improve considerably if they are to rival the likes of Argentina and possibly, even Italy.

It was a lazy performance, you can say more of a warm up game attitide. Ronaldo was definitely not that keen to push himself in the first game .Confidence personified!
