Má é claaaaro que eu vim aqui falar da convocação... Vou falar em inglês, até. Pera aí.
(Outra coisa: porra, sempre que alguém fala em Ricky eu penso no Kaká, né, e não no fucking Richarlyson...)

Dunga released today the 23 (+7) players that will be part of our squad on the World Cup. Here it goes (a pause for ctrl c ctrl v):

(thanks, globo.com)

I don't have much to say, except what everyone else is saying already: the lack of Victor and Adriano surprises me. I wished Victor was there, but I agree with Grafite instead of Adriano. I never liked him, that's true, but he also wasn't doing much with all the chances he was having so far with the team. It surprised me, but in a good way.
What I like the most about this NT is that you don't have a big star. I was gonna say "Of course, there are names like..." but I was saying too much, and that's exactly my point. It's not about one, it's about the team. You can't point only one player out of these that will be the best. They will work together to reach that title, and I (being a good Brazilian ;P) believe they will.
Also, I have always trusted Dunga and always will. He did lots of great things so far, even if not everyone noticed. I trust Jorginho by his side, too. I loved their press conference today haha some journalists said too much but were put back in their places. ;)

That's it, I guess. I'm looking forward to that sixth star in our kit.



Eleven. Onze. That's the number of games we've won in a row.

Ha, my boys don't disappoint me ♥ I was a bit worried when Chile made 2 x 2, but then things changed and we went back to being awesome :D
And NILMAR SCORED 3 TIMES! ♥♥♥♥ OMG I miss him so much at Inter! And I'm so so so happy that he's been doing well on the NT, he deserves it *-* Everyone said Adriano would be the one to shine yesterday, but instead it was him who did! Also, I think that we played beautifully. I missed that! :) But tricks can only be made in appropriate times (DO YOU HEAR ME, FELIPE/ANDRÉ? Argh, I never liked André).
Well, Brasil 4 x 2 Chile. We have 2 more games to go, and if we win them, we'll end 2009 without losing a single game! :D I couldn't imagine a better way to get ready for the hexa! ♥
Salve a seleção! ;D

You finally have an excuse to use it—what userpic do you not get to use very often but can't delete because it's just that awesome?

Wiiincest :D


Brazil is playing Ecuador today. Honestly? They provoked so much that now winning is a matter of honor. Go, canarinhos

Edit: "Canarinhos" my ass - just found out they're using the blue kit. ¬¬


Forget it - I deleted the icon so I could use my new NT one. :)
