Did this yesterday, but I can see either Brazil or Spain finishing second in their group, meaning they have to face off much earlier in the tournament. I think Spain had the most difficult path having to beat teams like Germany, Argentina, Brazil and Holland. That's off the top of my head tho, feel free to have a look :D

Ronaldinho has been left out of Brazil's squad, not sure what to make of that.

Is he not? He used to be didn't he? Wasn't he considered the world's best player not so long ago?

He's only 30, I don't see how he could have fallen to the point where he no longer makes Brazi's squad so quickly.

Same happened with Ronaldo, really. Ronaldinho's been on the slide for some time now, really.

I guess it surprises me because I'm not aware of any Brazilian players are at the forefront of world football.

Don't recognise the first name, second one rings a bell and isn't Kaka who Man City tried and failed to buy?

Lucio is centre half for Inter, Dani Alves plays for Barcelona and yes, Man City tried to sign Kaka, but he went to Madrid instead. They're all pretty damn good, to be honest...

You're forgetting Maicon, Pato, Ronaldinho is still kicking around, Lucas, Nilmar, Robinho

I'm gonna weigh in with arguably the best keeper at the moment, Julio Cesar, and also one of Brazil's most prolific goalscorers, Luis Fabiano
