Jamie Redknapp says Brazil's defence will see them through a titanic quarter-final clash with free-flowing Holland.Back to story
I think jamie got the thing about mourinho spot on and but brasil do it better than mourinho's teams. those of you who think brasil have changed their style, don't be surprised when you see a sixth star on the brasil shirt also those of you who say brasil's players haven't fired like kaka, imagine if he was on fire.

Football is not mathematics where you will predicts very easily. I think Holland will surely beat d Brazilians 2day bcos they forwards in RVP and Arjen Robben. D scoreline 2-1 in favour of d Dutch.

as always brasil are over rated . what is wrong with you people . you call their deffence solid ? did you watch the goals they concided . the backline was asleep and RVP wont give them a second chance i back the dutch 3 0 clean win

What a game we are going to see. I think Holland will win because their players are all coming good at the right time. In Scneijder, Robben and Van Persie - you have 3 players at the peak of their game and they have the ability to unlock any defence. Van Der Vaart also is a key for them. If holland can go 1-0 up, brazil will really come out at them and this will leave the door open - I see a score of 2-1 or 3-1 to Holland..... Who will then go on and beat Spain in the final

Brazil have the talent, the class and the depth of players...This team has the best mid-field, defence and goalkeeper in the world....Add to that Fabiano, Kaka and Robhino up front + Elano when he is fit (For the Final) and you also have a very lethal "Strike Force" for goals!! Dunga has been there - done that as a winning player (1994) so I'm sure he has a "Winning Strategy" to go all the way and lift the cup for a 6th time!! Prediction...Brazil winning 3-1 or 2-1!!

Holland will win as they have players which can unlock any defence plus everyone forgets that the Holland defence ain't that bad either.
Posted 22:06 1st July 2010
You have all predicted fine, the one that caught my attention was the 2-1 to Brazil Jamie mentioned. However I am going to give benefit of doubt to the Orange by sticking to 1-1 Brazil might win there after.
Posted 21:33 1st July 2010
Jamie is right about the dutch but wrong to glorify Brazil, and lets face it, he was backing England so that is an indication not to go with his absolute tendencies. Brazil are good but hey respect the dutch more, they are a formidable force and lets let the match do the talking
Posted 21:22 1st July 2010
Yes Jamie. Well said. Just like when u predicted that England will 100% beat Germany. Bravo!
Posted 20:44 1st July 2010
The Dutch can best Brazil, sure, in the same sense that USA can beat Spain. It can happen; they have the talent. But will they? No way. Jamie's spot on.
Posted 20:41 1st July 2010
Can't see it with the class in midfield and power up front Holland to win 2-0
Posted 19:45 1st July 2010
For me those two are my two favourite teams but I like Brazil abit more because of their style of play and I like The Netherlands because Robin van Persie plays for them and he is a sik player. I think Brazil will win this match 4-2. I just hope van Persie scores their goals.
Posted 19:02 1st July 2010
Brazil will play a good footbal, Robinho will get the ball running and Kaka should play better. 3x1 Brasil Fabiano should score.

jamie's right, brazil are not normally known for their strong defence but lucio and juan have been huge at the back for them. looking at the stats on picklive, the full backs really get involved in their attacks and with some of the flair players they have I think Brazils waves of attack will prove too much for holland. the two sitting players for brazil will have to make sure they cover if the centre backs do get caught upfield and even lucio likes to take it up the pitch
Posted 14:23 1st July 2010
this is too close to call ,although holland have not got the dutch masters skill and poise of the seveties they do have a solid unit and players like robben and sneiders who are good on the ball, i do think brazil will win but it could be in extra time, they have a striker who is lethal in fabiano, and he is the player the dutch should watch most.
Posted 11:51 1st July 2010
I think the Dutch have the capabilities of putting one over the much fancied Brazilians. They seem to have a much more stability and solidness in the defense and midfield and although they have not always exhibited the "Total Football" and flamboyance that we so accustomed to, that isn't the necessary ingredients required to lift the cup. Brazil are the only team to attack with flair and style with such swagger that lifts that cup. I think the Dutch are taking a page from the great German and Italian teams of the past going in to this tournament. I hope they can deliver and fufill their prophecy of lifting the Cup. I think it is about time they shrug of the Brides Maids tag as the best team not have won the World Cup.
