The difference between the two teams was the GoalKeeper. Sebastian Viera had a dreadful game with a crucial mistake that gave the game to Brasil.
Julio Cesar had a sensational game and stopped everything pushing him close to the best goalkeeper in the world.
Brasil were too good and deserved to win and could have easily scored more than 4 gols. On the other hand Uruguay had some chances to turn the game around but Julio Cesar was always there to block, stop and provide confidence to the Brasilian Team.
When you have no foundation (Viera) the house will fall down and Uruguay certainly came crashing down in a historic loss for El Maestro.
The outstanding player for Uruguay was El Malaka Martinez who was brilliant and it makes you wonder why he hasn’t been played more often.
Why el Maestro made Forlan Captain is beyond belief as his only responsibility should be to score not lead. Tactically Dunga destroyed Tabarez and showed all at the AUF that it’s time for a change in direction. Now we head to Venezuela and need a win, can Tabarez lift the squads morale in time and bring home 3 points. To be honest I see it as highly unlikely but achievable.
South Africa is slippin’ away and no matter what happens in this round we will be in 5th place. Are we the 5th place specialists? Is it our destiny to playoff again? Somehow I don’t think so. We have Colombia and Argentina at home which we got 6 points from the 2006 campaign and I can’t see that happening this time round.
Can we beat Venezuela, Peru and Ecuador away??????
This is the response to my question, and it looks like we need some magic and we need it now.
