As though Dani Alves was saying to Maicon, “I got chyu”. Alves promptly stood a good 7-10 yards out of position leaving Wesley Sneider wide open for a near post dribbler to past Valdes in goal. A bit earlier in what some might describe as an out of body experience Maicon let fellow Brazilian Maxwell mosey his way down the left side into the six yard box before crossing a ball which was put away by Pedro. It was as though he knew Cambiasso was beaten, but failed to recognize his part once it occurred. Dropping back into the box marking the always elusive “air” and “space” Maicon watched as the ball rolled passed his feet onto Pedro’s boot. So I ask you, in this triangle of Brazilian brotherhood was there something fishy going on? No, just coincidence but that’s no fun to write about.
