Just wanted to ask how young Wendell was getting on and if he's played any games yet? I saw that he was named in the squad.

You might remember I asked about him a couple of months ago - well I had the chance to see him play in Cruzeiro's title winning game, and I thought he was excellent every time he got the ball he caused damage, and I could not understand why he was subbed? :confused:

Anyway how is he doing so far? Has he played, and if so, is he looking like future Selecao material? :)

He did well in the game against Paraguay, when he came in for Elano. Against Uruguay he was just ok, playing most of the second half in the left-back (Paulinho, a left-mid, came in for Maxwell and he was sent back to the ld).

He is a good player, great tactically. He can cross very well and helps a lot in the marking. He isn't as brillian as Diego, Kaká or even Paulinho skills-wise, though.

Meh. Wendell is basically a useful squad player, hardworking and tactically very useful, as Gallo pointed out. Not anything brilliant, and I frankly don't see him as future Seleçao material. But he's a pretty valuable club player. :)
