Lucio is a good defender but, he will be 36 years old in 2014. I think it would be wise for Brazil find a replacement. Maybe, he will be around on the bench if he keeps in shape. Remember slow defenders can cause a lot penalties. Dani Alves makes too many mistakes. Maicon is definitely a better defender and a better crosser. Therefore, Dani Alves has no place in the starting lineup. Pato has more skills than Damiao but, he does not seem to have a killer instinct. Damiao deserves a chance because he has been a super form. Who needs all the flair up front when you have Neymar, Kaka and Hulk or Lucas Moura. The #9 striker needs to concentrate on scoring goals. With respect to Lucas Moura, I know he is going to be very important for Brazil and I had him on the original list until a couple of people made a case for Hulk. Upon further analysis, I concluded that Hulk deserves to be in the starting lineup.
