thumbnail Hello,

The Brazilian believes that his side showed their class against Italy at the Emirates and that all the footballing superpowers should have taken note...

Brazil forward Robinho believes that his side's victory over Italy last night will make the rest of the world take "notice" of their potential.

Robinho was the star of the show at the Emirates, where he grabbed an assist for the first goal and then scored a brilliant second, helping his side to a 2-0 win.

Speaking to Sport, he declared that his goal was "good" and that the Brazilian team have started the year in a positive fashion.

"It is always difficult to win against Italy, so everyone left the game very happy," he mused.

The former Real Madrid man wanted to emphasise the fact that Brazil had won in an impressive manner against a "great team, who are the champions of the world."

He also declared that, when the Brazilians find their best form, they are very hard to play against.

"From the start we moved the ball well and imposed our style of play [onto the Italians],” he stated. “When we do this, we make life very difficult for our opponents.”.
