It doesn't feel right that we're talking about a World Cup without Brasil! I know we have many South American members here and a few from Brasil as well. How's the press and people feeling?? I'm a ravid Brasil supporter and want them to win on their home soil, but while on paper they do seem to be favourites, I think the pressure will get to them and crush them. The original plan for these youngsters were to peak at the 2018 World Cup (as the exiles from 2010 were forgotten and they needed a "fresh" start instead, thus Robinho, Ronaldinho, Kaka, Luis Fabiano, Pato et al were never really used or considered), and it would've helped them relieve some of the pressure off. But with winning the Confederations Cup unexpectedly last year, it has given all the spot light back on le selecao and with these new expectations, I'm afraid they'll fail and all be exiled once more. What do you guys think? I see in the prediction thread, many think that they will win, but will they?
