An honest mistake or not, Jonathan Pearce’s commentary in the match between Brazil and South Africa on Wednesday led to a weird mix-up involving Chelsea.
With four starters coming from Premier League leaders Chelsea, with the likes of David Luiz, Ramires, Willian, and Oscar all being fielded together, mistaking them for Chelsea sounds quite reasonable.
In addition to this, Brazil started the match wearing their yellow home kit before switching out for their blue away kit in the second half, just like Chelsea.
Watch and listen below. With the Brazil wearing blue and four Chelsea players on the pitch, Pearce had every right to think this Brazil squad is a slight reminder of the current Chelsea.
