Post your comment about Dunga
 We have training drills and I can tell you it's not the first goal that Maicon has scored in this fashion, so it's not so much an error by the goalkeeper but creativity on the part of Maicon. Yes, the goalkeeper could have stayed in but he anticipated that the ball was going to be crossed. All the players played well - Maicon in particular was outstanding and Robinho also played very well. He is very versatile, he can play in various positions. I'm very happy with Robinho's performance, a year ago no one wanted Robinho but I wanted him in my team. I remember far back, I don't forget.
