Menezes immediately began the rebuilding of the New Brazilian National team with players that average only 23 years old. Most will be unknown to those accustomed to hearing Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Kaka, Julio Cesar and others. The most famous player that will continue is Robinho, world ranked #1 goalie Julio Cesar did not make the cut, nor did Kaka or Ronaldinho who’s best days are probably behind them. A couple of new players and favorites of Brazilian fans who wished they had been on this year’s World Cup team are Neymar da Silva Santos, and Paulo Ganso who are expected to do big things on the national team.
The new Brazil National Team will take on the United States in their first match on August 10, 2010, so if you’re in New Jersey, check it out and send us some footage.
