Panaji, Aug 4 (IANS) Brazil has a good chance to win its first Olympic gold in football at the Rio Olympics, football legend Zico said on Thursday.

The FC Goa coach noticed that while the team has great individual talent, the challenge would be to put in good team performances at the Olympics.

He pointed out the team has hardly had time to play matches together as a unit.

“We have a great chance because individually we have a great team and when they played together they had a nice game against Japan. We can get a gold medal,” Zico told reporters after being formally unveiled as the Indian Super League team FC Goa’s head coach for the third consecutive season.

“This is the first time they are going to play together. They have only played one friendly match in Japan,” he pointed out.
