The game will be played this sunday! Who do you guys will be the key to victory if we're going to win. How will Ronaldo and Adriano mesh together?

Here is the lineup that Parreira choses to start the game


It looks like Robinho will be taking Ronaldinho's place (who's suspended) as a midfielder. And we sure know the kid can set up goals, but only if the big boys Ronaldo and Adriano could convert them and avoid another "easy chances missed" we will be alright and win the game.

Starting linep:

Goal Keeper - Dida

Defenders - Cafu, Juan, Lúcio and Roberto Carlos

Midfielders - Emerson, Zé Roberto, Kaká and Robinho

Attack - Adriano and Ronaldo

GO Brasil

Chile aren't a bad side, but I hope that Brazil win, but more importantly that Adriano scores a couple .

Robinho will start against Chile, says Brazil coach

RIO DE JANEIRO, Aug 30 (Reuters) - Brazil coach Carlos Alberto Parreira has said that Robinho will start Sunday's World Cup qualifier against Chile, adding that he is worried about the hype surrounding the 21-year-old forward.

Parreira said he was naming his team early to avoid speculation over whether or not Real Madrid's new signing would play.

"I'm not going to indulge in any mystery because I want to avoid people going over the top over Robinho," he told reporters on Tuesday.

"The team has been decided upon and that's it, we can work in peace and quiet. I'm worried about the hype surrounding the players.

"There is a lot of marketing in favour of Robinho but, in life, you are remembered for what you win and Robinho is only starting out.

"I'm worried about the exaggeration of everything to do with him."

Parreira said Robinho would play behind the front pair of Ronaldo and Adriano.

"Adriano and Ronaldo will have the freedom to move around, with the support of the two behind who are Kaka and Robinho," he said.

Brazil, second in the 10-nation South American qualifying group with 27 points from 15 games, need a win in Brasilia to guarantee their place in the finals in Germany.

Parreira is without Barcelona playmaker Ronaldinho through suspension.

Team: Dida; Cafu, Juan, Lucio, Roberto Carlos; Emerson, Ze Roberto, Kaka, Robinho; Adriano, Ronaldo.

Brazil (Seleção): Parreira Spices Up Chile

Despite Brazil entering the fray labelled as clear favourites against Chile, the Conmebol WCQ clash to be held in The Mané Garrincha Stadium in Brasília (DF) is seen by Carlos Alberto Parreira as far from a walk in the park.

“We are the favourites without a shadow of a doubt, but, as anyone who’s been involved in football for a reasonable length of time knows, you don’t win matches by showing people your kit. In the last World Cup France and Argentina were favourites and were knocked out in the first phase.”

With classification for Germany in the balance, Brazil (2nd in the Conmebol table with 27 points to Argentina’s 31) will be looking for a win to avoid the last-minute heart attacks that Scolari caused before the 2002 cup.

The game will see a variation on Parreira’s usual Canarinha theme, Ronaldinho Gaúcho being suspended after clocking up three yellow cards in previous matches. The squad is currently preparing for the match in the habitual setting of the Granja Comary, Teresópolis (RJ).

With Robinho attracting the lion’s share of media attention in the Gaúcho’s absence, Parreira commented on the young gun. “Robinho is a worldwide attraction these days, basically the ‘xodó’ (favourite son) of the Brazilian fan.”

After speculation as to the line-up flipped between Robinho on the bench and the pitch, Parreira put fans out of their misery by confirming the provisional line-up for the game. "Brazil are going on with the following formation: Dida; Cafú, Lúcio, Juan and Roberto Carlos; Emerson, Zé Roberto, Kaká and Robinho; Adriano and Ronaldo".

This sidelines Ricardinho, the Santos midfielder who played the first half in the friendly against Croatia and scored the seleção goal in the one all draw. The veteran is unfazed by being benched. “The aim here is to classify ourselves for the World Cup finals: everything else – including personal feelings – is secondary.”

SANTIAGO, Aug 30 (Reuters) - Chile coach Nelson Acosta has told his team to avoid being awe-struck when they face Brazil in Sunday's World Cup qualifier.

"We have to play without a complex, if we just sit and watch (Brazil striker) Robinho we could end up asking for autographs," Acosta said on Tuesday.

"I want Chile to play with the dream of winning and not just go out thinking that Brazil are on the other side, this would be bad and dangerous."

World champions Brazil need a win in Brasilia to make sure of qualifying for the finals in 2006.

Chile are sixth in the 10-nation South American qualifying group with 20 points from 15 games and have bounced back into contention by winning their last two games.

The top four teams qualify directly for Germany and the fifth plays off against the winners of the Oceania region.
