I don't think it's an American thing, so much as an ESPN thing. They do well in the loud, manic, sportscenter type shows and the in-depth 30 for 30 type shows, but they seem to have trouble with live sports.

The NBA coverage on ESPN is soporific at times and the NFL works because Tirico keeps it simple and Jaws provides real insight.

All the other live sports coverage tends to be either overwrought or boring

I agree. I also think they chose the wrong people to cover/represent football when they have the rights to these tournaments. The feel they can just plug in anybody associated with success in US football or whatever sport they covering and that will mean they have instant credibility.

Ganso was poor in this game, lucus brought nothing. In the next game Sandro and Elano should start.

For me, Fred hadda start de next game...if dis small man ting couldnt work against Venezuela, it surely not gonna work against a stonewall defence like Paraguay.

I agree that Elano is more effective than Ganso, but if this tournament is about blooding the next generation (which is what Mano claims) then they might as well give Ganso a sweat. But the hype surrounding him is ridiculous.

Pato and especially Ganso has been injured so match fitness is an issue for them. mano building team for 2014 so those guys playing regardless of the situation.

lol like d brazil men team rusty too


The best today might turn out to be the under 17 side who playing later today. We getting a triple dose of Brazilain national sides today!

 Yeah, but unfortunately the U-17 side go be short on either 2 or 3 of their starters.  I worried dat dis game against Japan go be tricky.


Not because a man ears long and he teet' long dat it make him a Jackass!

Any time Brasil have two defensive midfileders like Ramires and Lucas in their mildfield you know they will be short on creativity in that area of the field. I don't think they need two of the same on the field.

Ent! Seriously does Brazil really need two holding MF players against Venezuela?????? Worst none of the two can pass any further than 5 yards.
