Borussia Dortmund won the Bundesliga today, thanks to a second half goal by Ewerthon assisted by Dede. The other two title contenders, Bayer Leverkusen and Bayern München, also have a Brazilian presence with the likes of Elber, Paulo Sergio, Lucio, and Ze Roberto.

Amoroso finished joint-top scorer in the league with 18 league goals, Elber was tied for third place with 17 goals, and Ailton tied for fifth with 16. Marcelinho tied for eigth with 13 league goals, and Ewerthon tied for 17th with 10 goals.

Amoroso and Ze Roberto are excellent!

Most Brazilians mention Romario as a player who should go to the WC, but I O Amoroso and Ze Roberto should have been tested more carefully. Ze Roberto should have gooten a chance on midfield, where Gilberto Silva is playing. And Amoroso is one of our best strikers!

But picking players for Brazil is always like that: On some positions the choices are clear, but on others the excess of options lead to injustice - or to the hard fact that not everybody can go, and some superb players will stay out. Jardel, Elber, Serginho, Felipe, França, Amoroso, Ze Roberto, Silvinho, Vagner, Adriano, Leonardo, Alex, Paulo Cesar, Roger, Mauro Silva, Zinho, Ricardinho, Marcelinho Paraiba, all these world-class players will probably be left out - and let's not forget Romario. Some of these have been tested, some haven't had a single chance. Fair? Unfair? Hey, it's impossible to use everybody.

Catanha, Paulo Rink and others have actually given up waiting for a chance and accepted invitations to play for other countries. What're you gonna do, huh? Life's tough. ;)

And let's not forget the drama on this decisive playday.

3 teams competing for the championship. League leader Dortmund is going down 0-1 and Bayern and Leverkusen score.

That's Leverkusen champion. Still the threat for the worst, as in Leverkusen conceding a goal which would turn Bayern champion.

Dortmund equalise, but Leverkusen scores a second. The Bayern threat is fended off a bit and we still have Leverkusen as champion.

Then Ewerthon comes in for Dortmund and he needs 60 seconds to turn things around again - 2-1 Ewerthon and Dortmund is champion !

A bit sad for Leverkusen, but I'm also happy for Dortmund. Most important thing was to deny Bayern the title.
