Fußball wrote:2002 was the lowest quality World Cup of all time though. France out in the group stages. Portugal out in the group stages. Netherlands out in the group stages. Argentina out in the group stages. Italy and Spain cheated out by South Korea. One of the worst Germany teams of all time where Oliver Kahn had to bail us out several times. Quarter finals with the likes of Senegal, Turkey, South Korea and USA in it. Brazil was pretty much the only big futbol nation that didn't inexplicably self-destruct or got destructed by refs. Plus just about everything went their way. The first time they went behind Ronaldinho scores that freekick goal which was intended to be a cross. Turkey red card Rivaldo playacting. Kahn pulling a Ballon d'Or performance the entire tournament and then in the final making that one howler. Brazil weren't great in 2002 but everything went their way. Can happen again this year but it won't. The 3 Rs deserved some heavenly luck. Hulk, Fred, Paulinho and Co. don't. :coffee:


Plus they got lucky as Oliver Neuville missed scoring the goal of the millenium by half an inch.

The other thing that was funny though, that Germany were just embarrassing the whole tounament, performances that made you want to go to the next room and hang yourself immediately, a Ballack goal somehow every tie kept them progressing, but in the final we were pretty pretty good for a change and lost lol.

people weren't sure that ronaldo , coming off a 3 years struggle with injury was ready to lead the brazilian attack, especially when scolari didn't take any natural number 9 as back ups .
rivaldo was coming off a terrible season with barcelona,  was deemed too old ,and not a good choice to play upfront with R9.
ronaldinho was viewed as inexperienced, hasn't played in a " top league " and just not good enough to play behind the strikers .
gilberto silva was largely an unknown quantity and  deemed not good enough to replace the injured emerson .
kleberson who ?
roque LOLior was a laughing stock .

and we know how that one ended....
Brazil were joint-third favourites for 2002, only behind Argentina and France.


odds makers will always have brazil in the top 5...after all they were the finalists in the previous one.

but people were pessimistic and highly skeptical of the team.
Yeah, that is true, especially after the struggle through qualification. But once Ronaldo was fit they were one of the favourites to win the competition.

My bad, Ganso, I was at work and thought that the M99 post was from you.
