Brazil coach Dunga said Barcelona star Neymar would be taking the armband from Thiago Silva but insisted he expected his players to show leadership throughout the team.
What happened to Thiago Silva?
Stupid stupid stupid decision. I'd have thought after the Germany thrashing that everyone would open their eyes and see who the Brazilian national team's real star man was. It's the sort of thing you see smaller national squads do, not something you'd expect from a team like Brazil. Almost takes something away from Thiago Silva also who I think has been one of the best Brazil Captains that I've seen.
Strikers shouldn't be captains imo
Don't think Brazil got hammered because they were missing Neymar. They got hammered because they were missing Silva. Strange choice.
