Did He Really Mean it? Maicon and the Joga Bonito

Sometimes experience is more important than knowledge or ability. And this Brazilian team definitely lacks experience especially in the opponent territory. Neymar is Neymar but his sidekicks are not the best in the business.

From the Brazilian squad only two players scored in a World Cup game before. Fred in 2006 and Maicon in 2010 but the latter was a huge one. The full-back destroyed the North Korean goalkeeper with a stunning shot or the keeper destroyed himself with one of the bigger errors of his life, it depends on how you approach it. The goal made it to the Top10 list of the last World Cup, anyway.


Fred’s goal in 2006 wasn’t a masterpiece, but Fred would probably start for Brazil this summer. Just like Hulk and Oscar. Or Jo.
