Brazil head coach Carlos Dunga is said to be leaning towards adopting a rigid 4-4-2 system for the remainder of the World Cup.
It is said that he has been swayed to the merits of the system by the success of footballing minnow England, who managed to reach the second round of the World Cup against all odds.
Developing nation England were expected to be whipping boys in Group C, a group which boasted the footballing super powers of Slovenia, USA and Algeria, but surprised everyone by only missing out on top spot in this "Group of Death" by a late USA goal in the final game.
England, who had touched the hearts of the world through their giant killing exploits in the group stages, were eventually knocked out by a hugely experienced Germany team in a close fought second round tie.
Brazilian coach Dunga has been trying out the inflexible system all this week in training, but is said to still be in two minds about adopting the system ahead of the quarter final with Netherlands after failing to find a member of his squad who can perform the Emile Heskey-role competently.
