Team profile

While it is wrong to suggest that Brazil are completely lacking the flair associated with some of their previous World Cup teams, the omission of Ronaldinho is a statement of intent by manager Dunga, who won the 1994 World Cup as a player. The former defensive midfielder has sculpted a side with more steel than teams of yesteryear but he can still call upon the likes of Kaka, Robinho and their marauding full-backs for attacking verve.

With just one defeat in 24 games, they look well set for a sixth World Cup victory, with Dunga selecting several players who failed to make a long-term impact in the Premier League such as former Arsenal man Julio Baptista, Kleberson (at Manchester United), and Elano and Robinho (Manchester City).
