So Brazil begin to look the side we know they can be. What did you make of the performance? And Japan, how to do you rate their World Cup?

Give your thoughts here.

i can see the improvements within the team and enjoyed the movement and the fluency of their play could be a little tighter at the back though

what's going on with Ronaldo? He didn't move! A number of tmes the ball went straight past him and he made no effort to get it.

Brazil looked orinary, few sides will fear them.

Dutch pundits rightly called 'an embarrasment' an 'painfull to watch'. After the match.

Brazil are limbering up, they can still winit but despite his goals I would drop ronaldo and play Juninho in a 4-3-3

Brazil showed why they are the favourites for this World Cup. Argentina may have the more balanced team but Brazil's explosive firepower gives them the edge over every other team.

Japan go home with a lot of credit. They play good, positive football which I enjoyed watching.

im devastated


they work well thew ball in the midifeld going forward and they're fairly organised at the back and this time they even had a decent goalkeeper to rely on

what they lack is composure in front of goal, they just couldn't convert their chances. or else they would have won the first two matches and gone through easy with Brazil

Awesome football at times - samba style :)

If Brazil can play the way they did at times in the 2nd half and Ronaldo can lose half a stone they may even be able to give Super Ghana a game.

Much better than the other games but we still got to improve our team but I think Parreira is on the right direction. Putting Juninho and Robinho the entire game, giving brazil the real brazilian way of playing soccer! Cafu and Roberto Carlos should be on the bench from now on!

So great to follow the match thread. People saying Ronaldo was past it. Hes so past it that now hes history! The top WC striker along with Gerd Muller. And guess what, hes only 29! If everything runs ok he still has one more world cup to go.

Hope you all realize that Brazil wont start playing their best football until theyre asked to. That means being surprised by a better side or conceding a goal! Now the cup really starts for us and I hope we can come up with better performances. Anyway, so far weve got three new records. Luiz Felipe Scolari is the only coach to win 10 straight WC matches(7 for Brazil and 3 for Portugal); Brazil is the only team to win 10 straight matches and Ronaldo is now WC top striker alonge with GM. Not bad for a slow start.

I didn't watch it, I watched the Aussies. Heard Ronaldo is about as mobile as a Beached whale, but still scored twice didn't he!

it was refreshing to see them play without the likes of Cafu and Carlos. I dont think I can face much more of Roberto Carlos lining up to take another farcical 35 yarder free-kick. At some point they have to take the hard decision to move on with a new line up so well done for the changes. Having said that you could see times when the defence didnt click as a unit.

Attacking, Ronaldo is off the pace still but mixed in some poor touches with some good stuff. Robinho gives them a hell of a lot more up front and Ronaldhino's pass for Gilberto's goal was just wonderful.

'Getting there' would be the school report. Had they put away a couple of chances in the first half (the Japanese keeper made some big saves) it could have been 5 or 6.

Brazil showed how well they work as a Team.
We can see that game with Japan, the samba boys meant that game for ronaldo, the team wanted to give ronaldo the boost he needs rather than being seen as a has been Star.
Sure it can be clearly seen, ronaldo is by far not as he once was.
Brazil always have lots and lots of new rising talents every year, like robinho just for one example.
Still, with Ghana and the rest of the top european team to play for in reaching the 6th WC trophy, it's not easy for brazil.
The only thing that eases brazil, is that they won 5 times already, if this time they fail to get 6th WC champ, really not much of a loss perhaps.

Its boring to see brazil wins World cup again, moreover :)

Brazil have great players and Ronaldo once was the best striker in the world. Now he is fat, slow and past it.

Great coverage. Excellent analysis but...... how could all 4 people on the panel talk such stupefying crap about Ronaldinho? I have no axe to grind but the guy made 3 goals, hardly missed a pass all night, and displayed several pieces of artistry few could match (which sadly we didn't get to see again).
The panel - "only adequate", "got to do better", "Isn't there yet". Give me break - the guy by any standards was brilliant on the night and generous. And no one on the panel has yet remarked on his almost unique 'no backswing' style - gives him speed of pass and disguises direction - as in tennis.

Come on guys - you werelooking for something to say - even surprisingly Leonardo.

Zettel.

Ronaldo: had 2, coulda/woulda/shoulda had 2 more (one he latches onto the ball, then misses a wide open net; the other he could have tapped in, had he been running instead of jogging).

I'd love to know how Brazil seem to manage to consistently progress their form throughout the tournament each time. It's a trick I'm sure a lot of teams would kill for..
