Yeah - I can't believe how stacked the Arg. offense is this year.
With all that talent, they'd better bring home some sort of trophy over the next 4-6 years.
Neymar I've only personally watched in a few Brazil friendlies and then throughout the Libertadores this year. He seems genuinely good - above his level in Brazil, but I think he'll turn into a Saviola-type upon reaching Europe. Especially if he opts for the Premiere League where his obvious diving won't be tolerated and the likes of Nemaja Vidic & co. will have a field day pushing around all 145 lbs of the rat-haired kid.
I will, though, be very interested to monitor the progress of this young, new-look Brazil. I became more and more impressed with Ganso's play throughout the Libertadores, and think he'll be a genuinely good European import. Silva and David Luiz could be a monster pairing at the back for years to come. I think Marcelo though warrants a place at LB rather than Andre Santos.
Yeah - I'm currently in Uruguay, so the whole world it seems is throwing hope behind Forlan, Suarez and Cavani. Could be a very lethal pairing up top for the Celestes.
Alexi Sanchez, though - don't know why he's valued at 50 million. Never saw him play for Udinense last year.
Too, for anyone who cares, all the Copa America games will be live-streamed for free at univisiondeportes.com. Don't know if they'll support replays though.
