It can be seen from the achievement where they have never reached the semi final or even final in the World Cup. It can be caused by the degradation of Brazilian players. We do not see the players like Pele, Ronaldo or Ronaldinho anymore in today’s Brazilian squad. Besides that, it may also be caused by the tactic applied by Brazil national football team. If they want to prove to the world that they still become one of the best, they must improve their quality soon.
