The U-20 Seleção won the World Cup yesterday beating Portugal 3-2 during the overtime with a stellar performance by Oscar. The players of U-20 teams don’t always carry through with the promises that they show at this stage but who knows if some of these will be future World Cup stars. In any case, this young Brazilian team is full of hope and sets the new trend. New trend? Isn’t that the literal definition of Bossa Nova? I couldn’t resist the comparison so please enjoy a must-have moment of Bossa Nova with Elis Regina and Tom Jobim.
Maracanazos are always auriverde somewhere in their hearts.
