Ironical

 

July 29, 2008

Talk of football and the name that springs up first is Brazil, the five-time World Cup winner. Yet it is an irony that this nation is still to win an Olympic gold. It had to settle for silver in 1984 and 1988 and in 1996 it was down to a bronze.

 

There is added pressure now on Brazil after its arch-rival and former World Cup winner Argentina picked up its first Olympic gold at Athens to end a 52-year wait. Coach Dunga stressed that Brazil’s mission this time is ‘Get gold’. “For other teams a silver or bronze medal might be okay but for Brazil it must be gold. That is what is expected,” he said.
