Hey Tocadinho

I'm pretty much interested in Brazilian soccer like you but yeah like you said it's hard to get info when we are living faraway from South America. But one thing i can tell ya there's a hell of a prospect in Adriano. He plays for Parma but is co-owned with Inter. He is very big(1.89m) and has a shot which is more powerful than Roberto Carlos. He is entirely left footed and also has plenty of skills. And he is just 20 years old. Formerly played with Flamengo, scoring 6 goals in 17 appearances, one goal for Inter in 8 appearances, 6 goals in 15 apps for Fiorentina and this season is having an explosive season having scored 8 goals so far. He already has a senior Brazilian cap and was recently hailed by Brazilian legend Zico has a future national team star after Zico watched him score 2 goals against Reggina a few weeks back. And just last week he scored vs Bologna after fooling the keeper to shoot into an empty net. He is definately a player to watch!

We do not get a lot of Brazilian club football in England so the next generation I know little about. However, I do know that we will continue to produce natural footballers who can turn a game when it matters. An example would be Ron Gaucho against England in the Copa.
