There will be a lot of yellow in Munich as both teams feature this as their national color. Brazil gets to wear the yellow shirts and the Aussies will be in blue. Because you know, it would be hard to tell these two sides apart.
Brazil beat Croatia 1-0 in its opener and Australia rallied to beat Japan, 3-1 with three late goals. The last time these two sides met was in 2001 in the FIFA Confederations Cup in Korea and the Aussies won 1-0. But it was a third place game and it was unlikely that Brazil was sending out its first string.
Brazil has won seveneight straight World Cup matches since losing in the 1998 Final to France. Turkey, China, Costa Rica, Belgium, England, Turkey (again), Germany, and Croatia have all walked the plank. With a win here, the Brazilians can add another continent to their list. They haven't faced an African or South American side in the streak, although they do have a decent chance of facing Ghana in the second round.
