Brazil coach Carlos Alberto Parreira is wary of the physical threat posed by Australia, but he is confident confident his side’s passing game will prevail when the sides meet later today.
The World Cup holders started their campaign with an unconvincing 1-0 win over Croatia.
Parrerira is expecting a brusiing encounter in Munich.
“Australia are a very physical team but we are not going to fight with them.
“Our business is to play football, put the ball on the ground and impose our style and technique.”
“It’s a decisive match because whoever wins will almost certainly qualify.”
The Brazilian coach is also aware of the credentials of his opposite number Guus Hiddink.
Hiddink led his native Netherlands to the semi-finals in France 1998 and took South Korea to the semi-finals four years ago.
“He’s a wonderful coach, one of the best in the world, and I have great respect for him,” said Parreira.
Ronaldo, who was heavily criticised for his performance in the opening game, is expected to retain his place in the starting line-up.
Team-mate Ronaldinho insists the Real Madrid striker has the players backing.
He said: “I am not worried about Ronaldo at all. He still has so much quality and all the players are very confident in him.
“In this squad, all the players help each other. Once the game starts, mentally we are fine and forget everything else that goes on.
“I am sure Ronaldo will help us to win the World Cup.”
