The Brazilian enclave in Ukraine keeps getting bigger. When the naturalised Croatian Eduardo arrived from Arsenal in the summer, he became the seventh Brazil-born player at Shakhtar Donetsk.

There was an interesting diversity of opinion about Brazil's opening game and their opening goal against North Korea. Their first match at a World Cup is always eagerly awaited, and a combination of freezing weather at Ellis Park and disappointment with the preceding matches, heightened the rather desperate hope that we would see something special. Many of us were convinced in the end that we had at least seen some football well above the previous standard. Yet those who regularly follow the boys from Brazil felt it was well below par. They should be so lucky.
