Gilberto furious at Brazil's World Cup flop
font size    

Brazil defender Gilberto on Friday voiced his anger with teammate Roberto Carlos for lack of concentration in the team's World Cup quarterfinal defeat.

"Roberto definitely should not spruce up his socks while Zidane was converting a dangerous free kick," said Gilberto. "He could have left that for later."

But Gilberto denied that the five-time world champions were unmotivated, saying any player could not be motivated to play in a World Cup quarterfinal match.

Gilberto scored a goal in Brazil's 4-1 routing of Japan in the group stage, a match which was considered the best Brazil played at the tournament.

"I hope to play at the next World Cup and fight for a sixth title," said Gilberto.
