The Brazilian soccer team is currently in Singapore making a short stopover before heading for Olympics 2008. They were training at the National Stadium on Saturday. And on Monday, there will be a friendly match against the Singapore team.
I was there at the stadium on Saturday to catch some samba and star action.
These were the fans waiting outside of Gate 1, where the Brazilian stars were supposed to be entering. The police officers said that they will be arriving on bus, and that wasn't the place to see the stars. These fans really have great sources.
The media was waiting at the opposite side.
This was inside the stadium where the workers were trying to uncover the field. It had been drizzling the whole day.
There it was, the bus holding multi-millionaire soccer superstars.

I didn't know the names of these players.
This is Lucas, who's playing for Liverpool.
When Ronaldinho came forward for his interview, the crowd of reporters were just swarming to him. I was standing at the back, which explained this shot. At that time, I realised that a portable chair would be extremely helpful.
Alright, I did managed to get a close shot of Ronaldinho. I was standing on the fence beside, one head above the rest of the guys.
These were the fans, waiting eagerly for the stars in the drizzle.
When is the National Stadium supposed to be demolished? Anyway, the soccer players finally went onto the field to everyone's delight. One fan was singing a song for Anderson. Others were just shouting "Lucas" all the way.
There were playing Monkey here, with 4 monkeys.
Dunga showing he still has the moves.
They played against themselves casually and didn't display any special trademark moves, like those in compilations you can find on Youtube. This photo is also a reminder for myself to get a telephoto lens.
These were all the fans who came to watch the training session. Man, this stadium is old.
