Sorry, that message does not exist!

Looking with just a quick glance, you’d think that this team picture of the Brazilian national side is just a normal team photograph, with the goalkeeper in the middle and the coach on the end, right?

Well, that is not the case at all.

The man in the green shirt is actually Bolivian striker Marcelo Martins, who was set to play against Brazil in the fixture!

Martins played for Brazil at various youth levels before switching his allegiances and playing for Bolivia, the country of his birth, at senior level, so why was he in the Brazilian team picture?

The Brazilian squad, recognising Martins’ close connections with the country he represented at youth levels, invited him to join the squad for a picture and he gladly accepted.

Massa 'relaxed' about F1 future, wants decision by Brazil

  Massa 'relaxed' about F1 future, wants decision by Brazil Felipe Massa says he is “quite keen” to drive in Formula 1 again next season but wants Williams to give him notice regarding his future by the Brazilian Grand Prix. Massa is on Williams’ shortlist of potential drivers for 2018, with reserve driver Paul di Resta and Robert Kubica also in the frame to partner Lance Stroll. Di Resta and Kubica are set to conduct tests in the 2014 Williams car between the Japanese and US Grand Prix’s, as a shootout for who will be the preferred candidate for the teams driver line-up next year. Massa believes the tests won’t be enough to evaluate the drivers potential compared to the current spec cars and insists he is happy to stay put with the Grove-based outfit for another season. “I think it doesn’t change anything for me [the di Resta and Kubica tests],” said the Brazilian. “Williams know 100 percent what I can give for the team and even if you do a test with cars that are four years before, they are completely different. You cannot evaluate too much. “I am enjoying doing the best I can in the last races this year, and I don’t know what is going to happen next year. “I am quite keen to do another season. I think I can do it in a great way, I think I can give a lot to the team like I did already. “But I don’t decide, the team decides. I have given a lot to the team, and F1 as well, and if people are happy I will stay.” Although Williams has not set a deadline to finalise their line-up, Massa says he would prefer to know his future by his home grand prix in Brazil. “We don’t have a deadline,” he added. “Definitely I think it will be good for the team, and also for myself, if we know what is going to happen before the race in Brazil. “We’ll see if that is possible, but we hope so.

In truth, it was probably the most entertaining thing that happened on the night as the two teams went on to play out a pretty dull 0-0 draw.
