    Gomes managed to play most of Brazil's friendly against Zimbabwe and, unsurprisingly, kept a clean sheet! Brazil won 3-0 with goals from Elano, Robinho & Bastos, with Gomes called into action only a couple times.

    Gomes played because of a back injury to Brazil's 1st choice keeper Julio Cesar, but the physio's claim it was not serious & he will be OK for the tournament. One thing is pretty clear from this tho, Big G has now overtaken Doni, quite rightly, & is now firmly Brazil's number 2.

    Yep. Well done by Gomes. Glad to see he had some chances to make some stops as well.

    Just seen some highlights on the tv, made one well covered diving save...the first goal was an absolute screamer. Well done Gomes, hope he features for them in a couple games since Cesar might be injured.

    Good to hear it.

    On the other hand, I saw the highlights of the Portugal-Cameroon game and BAE looked pretty poor.

    Bass - do you reckon he could one day be Brazil's number 1?

    Considering that Julio Cesar and Gomes are so close in age I dont know if he could surpass him for the #1 both are brilliant GK's but he could over take him if this "injury" is a bad, but they arent suggesting that. However with a bit of good luck Gomes could become the #1. He definitely has the quality to be a #1 GK for any country.

    I agree Lumin...in some cases thats how the international game goes, someone gets injured and that back up gets a chance...by all means Gomes is no back up but is definitely class

    One of the best things i've read over my time on this forum, well done sir

    But fook me if you, 2 of the best goalkeepers in the world, Brazil ain't struggling in that department are they. Unlucky for Gomes that Cesar got in before him and established himself, aside from Brazil i can only think of the Spain team where Gomes wouldn't be the first choice keeper

    Unfortunatley for Gomes, a clean sheet in a Brazil team against Zimbabwe will not raise any eye brows. I could of played in goal and would have been expected to keep a clean sheet!

    Not while Cesar's on two feet. Coco's just unlucky Brazil are currently blessed with three gold-standard 'keepers at the mo, and, as usual with goalkeepers, it's somewhat a case of dead-men's shoes.

    I'm old enough to remember when "Brazilian Goalkeeper" was basically a punchline to a joke.
