"It was a very complicated game, a very physical game I might add. There were many fouls committed and all of us, who love football and desire beautiful football, always ask that the beautiful game is controlled. We have to know what is good football and what is not. So when the referee allows certain fouls or certain incidents to go unpunished that is not right, as happened today."
As said, this was a strong Brazil performance, clinical and inventive. The main worry is that the defence can lose concentration at times (usually when the team had made the game safe). Lucio once again looked imperious bringing the ball out from defence - he has the brawn of Jamie Carragher with the ball skills of Rio Ferdinand.
O Fabuloso is off the mark! Am now looking forward to a potentially explosive Brazil-Portugal final group match.
