“I think it’s good this (defeat) happened as it does away with the feeling that this is a marvellous team, that it’s doing fine,” opined Pele of the loss to the Mexicans in Texas.
Coach Mano Menezes hopes to lead the Brazilians to their first Olympic title in London in August.
“It is a good team, with good players but not yet ready to overcome difficulties when they arise,” said Pele, who indicated he felt Neymar “has difficulty playing against a European or latin American” defender — more so than against Brazilian league rivals. “He stays stuck out there on the left,” added Pele.
