Brazil Defeats South Korea 2-0 Thanks to Goals by Neymar and Oscar
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
Brazil marched to a decisive 2-0 victory against South Korea on Saturday thanks to goals by Neymar and Oscar. Confronted with a pacy, skilled South Korean side playing at home in Seoul, Brazil struggled to break down the South Korean defense in the opening stages despite owning the lion's share of possession. Luiz Felipe Scolari fielded his trademark 4-3-3 formation marked by David Luiz and Dante in central defense, and first choice fullbacks Dani Alves and Marcelo on the right and left wing, respectively. Dante started alongside Luiz given the recent injury to captain Thiago Silva. With the exception of goalkeeper Jefferson, the rest of the Brazil squad remained the same as the one used for the recent friendly against Portugal with Neymar, Jo and Hulk leading the attack in front of Luiz Gustavo, Paulinho and Oscar. Scolari substituted Ramires for Hulk in the second half as the Zenit striker lacked a quality first touch on the ball and failed to find his rhythm. Brazil attacked effect ...

In Celebration of Latin Troubadours...
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Diego Garcia is releasing his sophomore album "Paradise" on October 8th via Concord Records. Following a recent tour to play with Alicia Keys in Argentina, Garcia wrote about what it means to celebrate the music of early Latin troubadours during Hispanic Heritage Month: When you're growing up, you never think the music that your parents listen to is cool. But it still seeps deep into your soul. And like wine, you learn to appreciate it as you get older. For me, this was the case with the early Latin troubadours of the 1970s. Classic artists like Favio, Piero, Roberto Carlos and even Julio Iglesias were men who sang about love and heartbreak in a way that has been lost over the years. The romantic Latin artist has become known as the guy on the beach with a linen shirt, cocktail in hand and girl in bikini by his side. I don't know if it's because of a proximity to the Caribbean and Mexico, or the dominating Latino demographics in the U.S.--but when people hear the word "Latino," the ...

Arnal Dayaratna: 5 Things to Expect From Brazil's New Coach Luiz Felipe Scolari
Huffington Post Sports - about 4 years
As the debate about the correctness of the CBF's decision to fire Mano Menezes continues, Menezes' successor, Luiz Felipe Scolari, has remained tight-lipped about his tactical plan for the future of the Brazilian national football team. Meanwhile, speculation proliferates about the kind of team that Scolari will field on the pitch in light of his work with Gremio, Palmeiras, the Brazilian national team from 2001-2002, Chelsea, Portugal and Bunyodkor. Predicting the strategy and tactics of any coach of the Brazilian national team at the World Cup itself is invariably a difficult exercise, but we can say how Scolari is likely to commence his tenure as coach of Brazil, particularly if we operate on the premise that he is likely to begin with a tactical strategy that is familiar to him qua Brazil 2002, and then adapt that strategy based on the performance of the team. Whether Scolari ultimately chooses the formation he deployed in Korea and Japan for World Cup 2002 for World Cup ...

Fans turn threatening as Brazilian team struggles
Fox News - over 4 years
(AP) — Players are hiring bodyguards. Death threats are painted on walls. The anonymous phone calls send a chill. The country's sports minister says this is all "unacceptable." The shadow of violence darkens around Palmeiras, the Brazilian soccer club with the most national titles. But Palmeiras is struggling — nearing relegation in the Brazilian league for the second time in 10 years — and threats grow from agitated and angry fans. Coach Gilson Kleina talks about a tragedy waiting to happen. Argentina striker Hernan Barcos, the team's top player, wonders if it's worth staying with the club if he starts fearing for his safety. Palmeiras won this year's Brazilian Cup under coach Luiz Felipe Scolari, but now it is seven points from dropping to a lower division with only four games left. After a disappointing 2-2 home draw against Botafogo last Sunday, some fans tried to storm the field. They fought with police, injuring ...

LONDON -- Brazil hasn't been this close to the gold medal in men's soccer since Romario was a promising young star in the late 1980s. Many great players have tried and failed after him, including Rivaldo, Roberto Carlos, Ronaldo and Ronaldinho. Now it will be up to Neymar, the future of Brazilian soccer, to end decades of frustration and give the nation its first Olympic gold, the only trophy missing for the five-time World Cup champions. Brazil is the favorite in Saturday's final at Wembley Stadium against Mexico, a team which will also be looking for its first Olympic gold. "It's our third chance to win this gold and hopefully we will learn the lessons from the other finals we played and didn't win," Brazil coach Mano Menezes said. Anything but the gold will be considered a failure for Brazil, which established the London Games as the team's priority this year and brought most of its top players for the competition.

Northampton Town: Langmead’s confident of achieving next year
Northampton Chronicle & Echo - almost 5 years
Kelvin Langmead believes the Cobblers should be looking to ‘achieve something’ next season and put the disappointment of the current campaign behind them. The defender has experienced all the highs and lows of what has been a generally bad season for the Cobblers. He had some moments to forget in the dark days of the autumn but rose to prominence in the second half of the year, to the point where he actually featured quite heavily in the player-of-the-year voting. Langmead finished third in the poll, and it’s not a case of onwards and upwards for the former Peterborough man. “It (next season) has got to be better than this one, for a start,” he said. “We’ve got to be looking to progress. With the manager being here, the players he has been able to attract to the club and the way we’ve finished the season I think we can look to achieve something next year. “I’m looking forward to getting a good pre-season under me because I didn’t get one last summer so I think that will help. “W ...
