Given the bright and confident game of the Brazilian national team in the selection, many expect the “Selesao” good results and at the World Championships. At first, the “Pentakampeons” did not justify the hopes placed on them. They played a draw with Switzerland, and also barely squeezed Costa Rica – 2: 0. But in the end, Brazil was the first in the group. In the third fight, the South American grandee calmly dealt with Serbia – 2: 0, sending her home.
If we consider all the matches, we can say with confidence that Brazil is in a remarkable form. The missed goal from Switzerland for the Brazilians is the only one in the last eight meetings.
Mexicans such indicators can not boast. Someone will call it a curse, but the “three-color” is again very close to flying out in the first round of the playoffs. For the eighth time in a row. Exit to the quarterfinals will be a real holiday for the country. Let Juan Carlos Osorio and said that Mexico came to Russia to win the World Cup, but in the current realities and with such an opponent it will probably be evaluated in a different way.
