  • Description

    Brazil drew two-all in its game against Paraguay last night (Wednesday) eliminating Brazil from the America Cup. The humiliation drew on angry response from the press the following day. It heaped criticism on the team which had earlier lost to Paraguay 2-1 in a match in Asuncion last week (??? part of cup). the daily Jornal de Brasil said the Brazilian since showed neither individual nor collective capability of breaking the defensive block mounted by their opponents. Many reports speculated that tem manager CLAUDIO COUTINHO would be forced to resign. The paper ' O Estado' de Sao Paulo headlined ??? Brazil eliminated, fans want Coutinho out'. Most writers praised Paraguay which only last May slumped to a humiliating 6-nil defeat against Brazil at the MARACANA STADIUM, where last night's game was held. Paraguay seemed intent on settling for a scoreless draw, used rigorous marking to confuse the Brazilians and disrupt their mid-field passing.
