Brazil's headcoach Mano Menezes

The draw of 0-0 against Argentina at the home of the adversary, was considered a good result by Mano Menezes on Wednesday in Cordoba, the first game of the Americas Superderby. Noting that the game would lack the natural difficulties of familiarity and lack of time for training, the coach saw defensive and offensive failures that need to be corrected for the round on Sept. 28 in BethlehemIn the attack, Mano complained about the lack of moving Neymar, Leandro Damian and Ronaldinho, especially in the first half. "We were very static, with players standing on the left and right in the middle. When did the reversing Neymar to the left side, with Ronaldinho in the middle more, we can create more situations, and automatically improve," he said.Specifically on Ronaldinho, Mano said the improved performance during the game, although a first time out. The coach said the most important is the role of reference that the attacking midfielder has played and the potential to grow even more with the ball at his feet."He has improved in the last part, when he came more into. But above all this is what makes us happy is to see your commitment. We know he can become a reference and it can grow. The final selection can be leveraged from the his return to Brazil. This growth will come and the end is great to see him for that commitment, "he said.

The biggest concern for Mano was starting on defense. The trainer, normal errors occurred for a team that played together for the first time, but that must be corrected for the next game against Argentina."My concern was with the defensive system, because you put six players to play together is totally unknown complicated. We gave a lot of creative freedom that almost cost us victory," said the coach, who saw positioning errors mainly by the left, with review Kleber and undecided. Dede in the middle, the right and Daniel Ralph and Paulinho in the head area completed the defensive system.
