Ramires: Brazil are prepared

Chelsea midfielder Ramires has said Brazil are ready for the emotion of playing the World Cup on home soil, according to ESPN.

A number of Brazil players appeared close to tears during the national anthems ahead of Brazil’s win over Chile and some did cry after the penalty shootout win. Ramires was asked if there was concern that the squad couldn’t handle the mental side of the tournament.


“Everybody's talking about the psychological status of our players but I've seen more experienced players crying on the field,” he replied. “This is just normal in a match decided by pens.


“We had conversations before the World Cup, we're prepared for what comes our way. What we went through in the game against Chile will be extra motivation for us.


“If we have another penalty shootout we'll be even better prepared. We had over 200 million watching the game and supporting us. The team are prepared emotionally for what comes our way.”


Brazil play fellow South Americans Colombia in the quarter-finals on Friday, with the winners of the tie between the Netherlands and Costa Rica waiting in the semi-final.
