Yeah, some nice stuff there. I wonder if he'll be signed by a big European club.

Am I missing something?

It just shows a very poor defense. I'm sure the guy has talent, but he wasn't even pressured and simply dribbled right through the defense. Perhaps I'm missing something, though.

Well, many Brazilians are able to make it to Europe (well, atleast the skilled ones), but sometimes it comes out that they underachieve in Europe unlike in Brazil, where they could've became great players, one of them being Robinho.

And Ic3, dribbling through the defense and scoring is pretty much the South American style of football.

I don't think Robinho has underachieved, the level in Europe is just that much higher, especially defensively.
