World Cup participations: 17
Greatest World Cup achievement: 5-time World Cup winners (1958, 1962, 1970, 1994, 2002)

Like always qualification was no big problem, although Brazil always shows the really strong performances only at the world cup finals.

Stars of Brazil? You would have to name virtually the whole squad - Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Adriano, Robinho, Kaka, Emerson, Lucio, Roberto Carlos, Dida, Fred - these are only some, but they already make it clear - Brazil is favourite number 1 for the world cup title. This bunch of superstars is coached by the old warhorse Carlos Alberto Parreira who has appeared at world cups with 4 different teams already and was the father of the world cup title in 1994 for Brazil.

The strength of Brazil is certainly the offensive creativity, the tricky passing game that can put any defence of the world in big danger. Weaknesses are at most in the defensive work where the 35-year-old Cafu directs.

If everything runs according to plan Brazil takes its sixth world cup, but not always everything runs according to plan ...

The odds on Brazil as world cup winner were naturally very low
- 4.0 at Betandwin.
For a bet on group winner Brazil you get 1.20.


Brazil was always known for its creative football. The sights of skillful players like Pele, Garrincha, Leonidas, Rivelino, Zico and Socrates dancing down the field almost with a Samba rhythm were really enchanting. But Brazilís exuberant attacking players who used to scintillate past World Cups are no more there. They have been replaced by the bone-crunching tackle of a new breed of midfield hard-men.Brazilian football has become one among the most violent in the world in the last decade with an astonishing average of around 55 fouls per game in domestic matches. 

The uninterrupted supply of creative players has dried up, so much so that Romario, who spearheaded Brazil's 1994 World Cup-winning campaign, is regarded the country's most gifted player at the age of 35.It is not as if Brazil does not have representatives of the old school in the likes of Juninho Paulista and Deporitvo Coruna's Djalminha.  But they donít seem to fit in with the game plan of the Coach Scolari, just as it was with his immediate predecessors.

The only country to have taken part in all 18 World Cups, Brazi will be going into the 2006 World Cup with their confidence sky-high.The unseemly goings-on in the Brazilian Football Confedertion (CBF) have not helped the team. During the qualifiers, the CBF lost count of the number of yellow cards itsplayers had picked up, called up players who were already injured and kept getting confused over FIFA regulations on the release of players by European clubs. 

Brazilís domestic football is in a chaotic state with a plethora of incomprehensible tournaments. Attendance has plummeted and there is a study exodus of the top players abroad, to greener pastures.But the general public is aware that there is something wrong. The outcry was so great that two Congressional commissions of inquiry were set up last year to investigate suspected maladministration and corruption. 

Both of the commissions found evidence of chronic maladministration and misuse of funds, by the CBF, often for political purposes.
