Brazil moved on to the semi-finals of the Olympic football with a goal created by Richarlison and completed by Matheus Cunha. They will face Mexico on Tuesday.
The only goal of the game came in the first half, Richarlison driving forward with the ball down the left wing before delivering an excellent pass in to Cunha on the edge of the penalty area. Cunha had time to control the ball and set himself before burying his shot into the bottom corner of the Egyptian goal.

I didn't think we should allow him to go, but it may have positive results after all.

Altogether now; "Don't you ever let a chance go by, go by..."

With Richie, DCL, Kean, Tosun, Gray,Townsend all on the payroll and a few youngsters emerging it would appear they need to move someone out before any new ''class act'' comes in.
The first month will be crucial to see who is looking good and who isn't.
There wasn't much in the way of goals from the current midfield batch but Iwobe, Doucoure and Gbamin may change that scenario especially with the wing options of Gray and Townsend.

Is that 4 or no goalkeepers?

Finding a solution to the Calvert-Lewin - Richarlison problem seems to be a nice problem to have, but it will show us how good his 1 to 1 communication skills are. He says in his interview that he likes to think that is one of his strengths; well, we shall see very soon!

Maybe that's how it would work. Or maybe playing just off Calvert-Lewin in a 5-3-2 or 5-2-2-1.
Not since Silva's penultimate season have we found a good blend (personnel and formation), so that's one of the priorities for Benitez.

So Rafa will have to really find a solution which satisfies both players' ambitions. I have a feeling that Richarliosn will never be happy until he is the #1 attacking player. He is becoming a very ambitious player. Carlo's saying a while back that he could be a candidate for the Ballon d'Or didn't help the situation.

If there was a Ballon d'Or for crying or floor rolling, Neymar would be a cert. I can't stand him or his antics. The most pathetic sight in international footy was the World Cup when he got injured and they had his empty shirt on the bench.
