Five-time champions Brazil were expecting an open match against the Netherlands.

They start as favourites having the better record of previous meetings between the sides - and the firepower - to go all the way to victory. Dunga believes Robben is crucial to the Dutch set up and Brazil will need to be wary of the Beyern Munich winger.

Dunga, Brazil coach said, "Without a doubt he is a technical player, a big player, he makes a big difference. If we look at the games Bayern play, he had a decisive role in those games. So yes, decisive players can and do make a very big difference."

The Samba Boys will have to be at their best at the Nelson Mandela Bay stadium as the sell-out crowd expects nothing less.
