The three-time European Footballer of the Year said the Brazilians had lost their air of superiority and are Ã¢â‚¬Ëœjust like any other squad.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Where has the Brazil team we all know disappeared to in this World Cup?,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Cruyff.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I look at this team and I remember people like Gerson, Tostao, Falcao, Zico or Socrates.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Now I only see Gilberto, Melo, Bastos, Julio Baptista.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Where is the Brazilian magic? I could understand why Dunga has picked some players but where is the playmaker or skill in midfield?
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I don’t think any spectator would pay to watch them. I would never pay for a ticket.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Holland take on Brazil on Friday in arguably the highlight of the quarter-final draw.
And though the Dutch are underdogs against the five-time champions, Cruyff insists there is little to fear from DungaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s team.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Brazil need to play with more intensity, more bite on the pitch, because they are not special,Ã¢â‚¬Â he added.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Always the fans want to enjoy Brazil, enjoy their fantasy at World Cups, but they do not have that this summer.Ã¢â‚¬Â
