Brazil fails in its debut and proves Ronaldinho right

A poor goalless draw Brazil against Costa Rica, reveals what the former star criticized so much, Ronaldinho.

A week before the start of the Copa América, the former player and World Cup winner with Brazil expressed his discontent with his country’s team.

He said that “there is no star. All the players are average, for today.”

That was before the competition began in the United States, without knowing for sure if the canarinha’s performance would really be disastrous.

The day has come for Brazil to make its Copa America debut in the Group D match against Costa Rica and it has become clear that they are not having a good time in football.

The Real Madrid winger, who is expected to be one of the leaders of the Brazilian national team, did not have his night: He did not complete any dribbles, lost a total of 18 balls and was substituted in the 71st minute, when he left his place in the starting eleven to Endrick. The sensations, beyond the statistics, reflect that the 7 of the Canarinha he found himself uncomfortable, neutralized perfectly by Jeyland Mitchel, and unable to find solutions that would unblock the game. Even in mixed zone He complained about the state of the playing field and its dimensions (NFL fields adapted for the Copa América). Costa Rica’s plan worked out like a charm.

The Ticos took advantage of every opportunity to defend their area and move the ball away.

Brazil suffered from an offside play that prevented a goal. But beyond the lack of effectiveness of the Brazilian kickers.

Unlike Ronaldinho, who with few words caused more damage to the Brazilian team.

Brazil will have another chance to regain its form on Saturday against Paraguay in its second Copa America match.
