Brazil in the Olympics - Football

On paper they have the best team of the tournament, hands down! No argue possible. 

But that alone is not enough. You need to be able to prove it on the pitch. Spain can easily testify to that, as they were considered to be one of the favorites for the podium, but were eliminated by -what we would call - average teams.

Nonetheless, Brazil has been able to show a bit of their "Samba flair" by winning their first two matches in great style. Neymar is obviously on the spotlight and as expected, he is dealing well with the pressures of being one of the finest footballers on the planet - and probably the best of the tournament - and a leader for his country. But like I said, in paper they have a great team... with names that reach out to the likes of Oscar, Hulk, Marcelo... and of course Alexandre Pato.

I recently spoke to him in London (check out the scenery in this venue called "The Cube") and he told me about his expectations for London 2012 and Brazil's quest for gold, a medal that is still to be conquered by the 5-time World Cup Champions.
