Mano Menezes laments Ronaldinho and David Luiz performances despite Brazil's victory over Bosnia & Herzegovina

Menezes laments David Luiz display

In a disjointed display, Brazil were lucky to leave Switzerland's AFG Arena with the win and have now gone an eight consecutive games unbeaten.

However, aspects of the Selecao's performance left Menezes with a bitter taste after they struggled past BiH and he was particularly displeased with Ronaldinho's role.

He told GloboEsporte: "I believe that Ronaldinho was below what Ronaldinho is.

"He failed to provide that passing quality which he usually gives."

The two-time World Player of the Year was replaced by Ganso in the second half and Menezes recognised the youngster's impact.

"Ganso came on and looked good and the improvement in that sector happened because the ball started to stay in that area.

"It is not always possible to keep the ball in front of the goal. Our rivals' system did not allow that."

Another player to put in a below-par performance was Chelsea's David Luiz but Menezes offered the defender some words of encouragement.

"We talked after the match and I told him that errors are part of a footballer's life. You cannot let that interfere with your entire game.

"As a defender, you cannot linger in that area of the pitch and let the attacker come away with the ball."

Brazil took the lead early on through Marcelo but were soon pegged back by Vedad Ibisevic. Sasa Papac then turned into his own net in the dying moments to gift Brazil the win.
