Edu in the First Eleven of the Brazilian National Team

Edu in the First Eleven of the Brazilian National Team
By Ozgur R. Nazilli

The Brazilian stopper of Fenerbahce took his place in the starting eleven against Mexico, the game which Brazil won 3-1. Edu had been called up to the National Team by Dunga due to his consistently successful performance this year, and he was on the field right from the start this time.

Edu gave a solid performance against Mexico, and almost got himself on the scoresheet in the second half, when he headed Ronaldinho's corner kick towards the goal, but the Mexico goalkeeper pulled off a miraculous save and swatted the ball aside.

The winning goals came from C. C. Kleber, Kaka, and Afonso for Brazil, and Cacho score Mexico's only goal. Blumer was sent off with a red card towards the end of the game.

Edu has made us all proud by representing Fenerbahce in the Brazilian National Team. I would like to congratulate him, and wish him a long and successful career for both Fenerbahce and the National Team.
