what are the 1 on 1 soccer - Brazil cheats?

I understand what you mean is what we in Europe call "man to man marking". This is done by the defence to cut out the attackers chances of scoring. These are the forwards and any attacking midfielders. Another method that is coming in is known as "zonal marking". I believe "man to man marking" is better because you cannot be everywhere at the same time and you have only one or two men to keep an eye on. It must be remembered that all the defence have to do the same job.
