This is an article on some of the lesser known faces of recent Brazil squads (all of them defenders or midfielders) that stand a good chance of making the final selection for the 2014 World Cup. I have tried to avoid the more obvious players such as Neymar, Lucas Moura, Oscar etc here or even the established Brazilian players that have been in Europe for quite a while (the likes of Lazio’s Hernanes and Shakhtar’s Willian being examples):
Leandro Castan (Roma)

Manchester United maintained their position at the top of the Barclays Premier League with another come-from-behind victory, this time away to Paul Lambert’s youthful Aston Villa side. The game will be remembered for Javier Hernández’s stunning second half impact from the bench while Villa will be disappointed to have finished without anything to show for their hard work and solid tactics.
First Half – Villa Hassle United
When playing a vastly superior side, two basic goals for any side would be to keep things tight defensively and look to break well while you can. In the first half, Villa achieved these goals and had a 1-0 lead at half-time to show for it.

Real Oviedo are a team based in Oviedo, which is in the Asturias region of Spain. They are a team with a proud history, having spent a total of 38 seasons in La Liga in their history, which after a succession of owners who have ran the club into the ground, find themselves in the Segunda B, which is the third tier of Spanish league football, and are on the brink of oblivion.
Real Oviedo are in deep financial trouble. They need to raise almost €2m by November 17th or they will go out of business.

What’s happened to Manchester City this season? I’m sure most of you would agree with me when I say it’s been a poor start to the season for them. I am open to arguments from people who say they are only 2 points off top spot – it’s not like they’re out of the title race – but 22 points from 10 games so far is generally a poor start compared with the standards they will have set themselves in my opinion, and you’ve got to factor in that they are still yet to play Chelsea, Man United, Tottenham and Everton. They are already out of the Carling Cup and it’s been an even worse start for them in the Champions League, there’s no disputing that, collecting just 1 point from two matches against Ajax where only maximum points would have really sufficed. They are now bottom of their group. It’s been a bad all round start for them, and here are my thoughts on what might have caused it.
