Analysis

Like an earlier reader said, the Brazil-Mexico match was a thrilling match. Nothing but pride was at stake but players played as if a cup awaited.

I took a look at some of the more pertinent points for SI.com.

Following up on my earlier post about the match. I was very frustrated Gio and Vela did not debut earlier. The match was pulsating and was ripe for a change right at the half.

Also, Hugo needs to ditch the predictable tactics and 4-4-2. I ask anybody that knows anything about tactics to figure out how to put Guardado, Vela, Gio, Nery, Villaluz, Landin, Cacho in a 4-4-2.

However, my hats off to Brazil, football is their world and everybody else is just visiting it.


BBSC.

Great summary Luis. I hope that the retirement honors keep happening so Hugo doesn't have the pressure of bringing back Borgetti, Blanco, Oswaldo for the qualifiers. Let youth be served.

After attending the USA-Brazil match and watching Mexico v Brazil on tv, I think Mexico & the US need to find ways of playing more matches against teams from outside CONCACAF.

The youngsters from both countries need to test themselves against the very best. For the American youngsters, they also need to be exposed to big enthusiastic crowds (be it in Europe, Asia or So. America).
