"We are only thinking about this World Cup".

"Having generations of talented footballers is a common phenomenon for us", Brazilian coach Amadeu said. "It is not about knowing the grass but to be able to feel the soul of the stadium". "I am proud of my players". The Carlos Amadeu coached Brazil has impressed with its game both in the creative and striking zones where the likes Lincoln, Paulinho and Brenner have excelled alongside the play-maker Alan. It's Brazil versus Germany after all.

"Brazil against Germany is a world classic", said Amadeu in his pre-match interaction. That is because both teams try to play.

"In the end, one thing you can not control is the result. You can control style of play", the 52-year old added.

"I'm relaxed (about playing Germany)". Brazil themselves might miss Sao Paulo's Weverson through injury, in which case they might field Luan Candido of Palmeiras at left-back. "We got more exhausted when you are trying to win matches". "You can lose a player through suspension". We conceded many shots from long and medium distance. We have played teams in Europe, Africa, North America and Asia. We receive this energy in a positive way. But each match is hard and we are not going to get ahead of ourselves.

A fan of Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, Paulinho said: "He's always looking to get better, practice and develop his quality".

"This shows what kind of opportunity we have here". "We had these moments of losing concentration, losing the focus".

'Me too': Women share painful stories as campaign's momentum continues
Milano said she has a " Me Too " story as well, but she chose not to share it at this time , hoping to put the focus on others. If that sounds insane , just look to the White House for confirmation that these attitudes are found in the highest quarters.

"We could have won the last game with a bigger margin than we did", said Wueck.

Champions in 1997, 1999 and 2003, Brazil are making their 16th appearance at the U-17 finals - a record they share with the US - and are looking to make at the semis for the sixth time. What future holds for us will be a outcome of how we performance as a group here.

Amadeu had an interesting insight into what made this team stay true to the traditions of Brazilian football.

"I can not compare the generations". Our midfield was not really good in their defensive system. Paulinho has focus in national team and club Vasco Da Gama. Whatever will happen from here is a effect of that.

After remaining unbeaten in four matches so far in Kochi, where the Samba Boys were treated like the home team, the South American country can expect more local crowd to throng the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan venue (popularly known as Salt Lake stadium) on Sunday to cheer for them. "What they get to see at this World Cup is a just a confirmation of how they know these players to be".

According to weather reports, the precipitation is expected to pass by Sunday and a rain-free match with a cloud cover is expected on the match-day.
