Brazil’s Copa America Rests On The Knife Edge

Brazil’s agonizing 2-1 win against Perú demonstrated that Dunga’s team only agreed to be too dependent on Neymar’s play, but a minimum of they earned the 3 points within their Copa América debut. Things didn’t exercise that well against Colombia, though.

Neymar and the teammates couldn’t get anything going and lost 1- to some Colombia side which had lots of flaws by themselves throughout their defeat to Venezuela. In addition, Neymar saw a red card following the game and can face a 2-match suspension, and therefore his team will have to find other offensive weapons if they would like to possess a shot in the 2015 Copa América title.

Dunga does not have a pure poacher to depend on in the squad. Regardless of how well his wingers are accomplishing – William is within good form to date –, South america do not have the aerial presence within the box to complete the plays, so that they need Neymar to mix using the wingers and also the striker to create good scoring possibilities.

Furthermore, their midfield isn’t able to manipulating the game even against an inadequate Colombian midfield line which battled a great deal within their debut game versus Venezuela. It is true that Carlos Sánchez improved so much from that game and really completed a great performance against South america, but La Canarinha should be able to always control a match against Colombia.

South america must find some solutions for their struggles within the midfield to be able to replace Neymar and be a harmful team without him. Fernandinho continues to be utilized as a defensive midfielder despite showing 2 yrs consecutively for Manchester City that he’s not suitable for play there and the man loves to convey more freedom.
