Tim Vickery in South America

Muricy Ramalho: Poor tactics
It was the moment when reality bit contemporary Brazilian football on the backside. Barcelona's 4-0 win over Santos - I dread to think how many they could have scored - did not only win the Club World Cup. It was also the moment when not even the most fervent Brazilian nationalist could doubt that the mantle has changed hands. Once Brazil was the spiritual home of the beautiful game. Beyond all question, that honour has crossed the Atlantic to Catalonia.
