Brazil are still the team to beat
Going into the season that will end with the World Cup there is one team that stands out above all others - Brazil. Having won the Confederations Cup yesterday with a demolition of Argentina, Brazil are also the Copa America Champions and the reigning World Champions. They have a new generation of players who look almost as frightening as the last generation. We were mesmerised by the likes of Romario, Rivaldo, Leonardo and Ronaldo and we are now being mesmerised by the likes of Kaka, Ronaldinho, Robinho and Adriano.
I remember seeing these new players win the Copa America last year and thought to myself this would be the team that Brazil would send to the World Cup. With the likes of Cafu, Carlos, Emerson and Ronaldo still in the mix, Brazil now have a great mix of experience and freshness.
I know its too early to be making predictions about who will win next year's World Cup, but some people will already believe that Brazil have one hand on the trophy.
