Menezes wants Brazilian Olympic gold

  • Intro:

    Brazil manager Mano Menezes will field a number of younger players in Wednesday's friendly against the USA as the nation prepares for the Olympics.


    Mano Menezes will manage Brazil at the upcoming London Olympics along with the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

    So, Brazil's friendly against the USA in Washington on Wednesday will provide the 49-year-old with the perfect opportunity to field some younger talent with the future in mind.

    Brazil have never won the Olympic fiootball gold and Menezes understands that the pressure is on.

    SOUNDBITE: (Portuguese) Mano Menezes, Brazil coach
    "We talked about a philosophical transformation that needs to happen when we were talking in Brazil. It's difficult for us to assimilate and infuse that because we became accustomed to winning in a different way. When you win in a different way it's more difficult to infuse the change - harder for the defence - harder for the media. That's the impression that we have, that's our evaluation of what needs to happen. Without the change that will not bring us to the title. "

    Brazil kick off their Olympic campaign against Egypt on July 26th.

    Menezes will play the likes of Neymar and Lucas Moura during Brazil's North American tour which will also see them play Mexico in Dallas and Argentina in New Jersey.
