Brazil upset over boo boy Anderson

Arsenal's attempts to style their stadium as Brazil's 'home from home' weren't helped by fans booing Manchester United midfielder Anderson during Wednesday's friendly with Sweden.

Brazil have played three times at the Emirates Stadium in 18 months and manager Dunga had to explain to confused South American reporters: "It was because there is history here. He plays in Manchester."

Anderson said: "It was odd to be the only player on the pitch being booed. But it also proves that I am doing a good job at United. I hope that the fans of Arsenal have many reasons to be angry with me."

The jeering was not the only thing that annoyed Brazil officials.

Arsenal advertised the game as a commemoration of Brazil's first World Cup win in 1958, when they beat hosts Sweden 5-2 in the final.

Spokesman Ricardo Paiva said it was a "normal game", adding: "If it was commemorative, it would be a friendly in Gothenburg or Stockholm."
