No way. People love brazil because Brazil don't play football, they live football. Once Pele said, "Europians play football from their brain and south americans from their heart". This itself is the answer for why people like brazil. If you see the matches you will come to know that Brazil's play is full of art. They are strong in their moves, game plan. They have clear picture in their mind about what they are going to do in field.

If you observe the carefully you will find some major differences in brazil and other teams. First thing their player will be exactly in position where they are expected to be in field. Next, the nature of pressing the ball forward instead of crawling in own court. Brazillians are good in all departments of game like short passes, long passes, free kicks, corners, goalKeeper. Only concern is their defence. they look porous in defence but then if opposite side scores two goals brazil have ability to score more than them.

So not being partial to Brazil for any other non-football reason I won't hesitate to say that Brazil is not overhyped.

Latin Americans make the futbol dance to their tunes. The mesmerise you with their skills. They attack, never defend. But I luv Argentina more than Brazil.

I love Argentina... Actually, Latin Americans play football like cricket by the Indian subcontinent or West Indies. They depend a little less on strategy and more on personal skills. Each team has a few superstars and their game plan revolves around them. Europeans play football like the cricket of Australia and SA. They don't rely on superstars. If they have stars it is enough. Their game plan and the use of technology sees to the rest.
