The Barcelona defender Dani Alves has said that the Brazilian fans should not be criticising the team if they have a bad performance. Instead, they should at least be praising and encouraging the youngsters within the squad.
Brazil will be hosting the 2014 FIFA World Cup. As a result, there is a lot of pressure in the football crazy nation for them to lift the trophy in their own backyard. Dani Alves acknowledges that it certainly will not be easy especially given that the home support, which is expected to provide a lot of stick if something goes wrong, will not be able to motivate them.
