Brazil have plenty of reasons to be optimistic as they head into the opening game of their bid to finally win the World Cup on home soil. Technical co-cordinator Carlos Alberto Parreira has said that he is so confident Brazil can win the 'hexacampeonato', a sixth World Cup, because "we have the best defence in the world", marshalled by Paris Saint-Germain duo Thiago Silva and David Luiz. Their presence, along with full-backs Dani Alves and Marcelo, masks any doubts surrounding the...
