    Re: Brazilian Reinaldo to play for Australia

    Just to answer the general question of "Do we know how is he doing or do we know him?", the answer is going to be no. Most of these players came from third division teams (if even that) and left the country unnoticed. The only players we'd know about are the ones having success in a big European leagues, like Deco, Pepe, etc.

    EDIT: I merged all the threads that relates to Brazilians playing for other nations. soccer krazy, feel free to bump up other threads related to this so I can merge them to the topic as well. Also, post any new news in this thread. Thanks.

    FIFA President Sepp Blatter just issued the most bizzare warning I have ever seen about Brazilians on other teams:

    Blatter warns of risk that Brazilians will dominate all national teams

    He says that "If we don't take care about the invaders from Brazil, not only toward Europe but toward Asia and Africa, then the next World Cups in 2014 and 2018 out of the 32 teams - you will still have national teams - but we will have 16 full of Brazilian players,"
    "It is a danger, a real, real danger."

    Insane! Think about it- 16 Brazilian teams against 16 non-Brazilian teams! This would happen in a free labor market uunder current rules!

    I really wouldn't mind it, as long as the US gets to be one of the Brazilian teams!

    Amauri has stated that he would accept a call-up to Italy if Donadoni calls him up. ugh. He gets his citizenship on April 30th. i hope dunga can salvage this guy. we dont need to lose another star to another country.
