Neither Brazil or Portugal were exactly on top form in their first group games and tonight’s mouthwatering encounter in Johannesburg should hopefully see both Dunga’s and Sven-Goran Eriksson’s sides up their games. Didier Drogba only managed a cameo role in The Elephants match against Portugal but could well start this clash and will be looking to cause Lucio and Juan all sorts of problems.

The Ivory Coast also have their work cut out trying to shackle Luis Fabiano and Robinho but then there is the small matter of Kaka who is waiting to get into gear.
