Brazil will face
the South American champion Uruguay in the first semifinal of Confederation Cup
which will be played on 26th June, 2013 at Belo Horizonte's Mineirao
The match will
be interesting as both sides have a strong squad.
Brazil are unbeaten
in the competition whereas, Uruguay have won two and lost one.
Brazil have a
young squad and they need a little bit experience in order to dominate world
football again. But Daniel Alves and Thaigo Silva both have a vital role to
play they are good and have a lot of experience.
is that most of their players are experienced and play regular football in
their respective clubs. And they are not too young as of Brazilian squad.
PLAYERS TO WATCH:
proving his worth in this competition. He has scored in every match and is the
top goal scorer for Brazil with 3 goals. His all 3 goals were superb. Neymar is
the player to watch in this semifinal.
Luis Suarez has been exceptional. His free kick against Spain was fabulous. He
scored 2 goals against Tahiti and that two goals made him all time top scorer
for Uruguay. Hernandez is currently the top goal scorer for Uruguay with 4
goals, all goals came in a single match against Tahiti.
Scolari should be a happy man as finally Brazil have showed some ability and flair.
His squad is perfect and has no injury worries. He will go with the same squad
as in the previous matches. He has a complete squad with all types of players,
Hulk physically strong, Neymar a packet with skills, sharpness, quickness, finishing.
Defenders like Luiz and Thaigo strong in airs. Fullbacks like Marcelo and Alves
good in both attack and defence.
Old horse Forlan
will going to start this match as he is still on fire. He showed his class
against Nigeria where he scored the winning goal. Cavani and Suarez will
definitely start. Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez is looking to use his strikers in
order to beat the host. Suarez is in brilliant form and this is the time for
him to show his class and help his country to qualify for the Final. Goalkeeper
and defence line will be the same as of first match against Spain.
Brazil are the
favourites to win this tournament, the main advantage is that they are the home
team but Uruguay will not let themselves to lose it easily. I will go for a 2-1
