Too good?
I don't think so.
Too good for England? Certainly, but they are not unbeatable IMO. Didn't look that great in this match, and to be fair a draw would not have been an unfair result given Croatia's 2nd half performance. They created 3 great chances they all went straight at the keeper. A better side, or perhaps a side with more class up front might have drawn, if not won that game.
I saw it when they played New Zealand last week in a friendly. Plenty of holes in the defence which even NZ opened up a few times. When they come up against one of the top teams like say Argentina or Czech Republic (probably the best 2 teams so far), I don't think a Brazil victory is a foregone conclusion.

I think Croatias disciplines style of play made it hard for the Brazilians to play flowing football. Croatia marked well and were very organised. It was a great goal by Kaka, but I still think that the Brazilians were far from their best, and will need to improve to beat the other strong teams.

In fact, with Brazil's 2nd round opponents likely to be Italy or the Czechs, its not beyond the realms of possibility that they may well be flying home early.

There's no denying that Brazil are just an absolute class act. Their passing is superior to any team out there, the skill Ronaldinhio has with the ball and the goal scoring oppertunities they create are amazing. But that being said this team DOES let the other team have possesion of the ball and they do have holes at the back. They are beatable but you do have to play like the Croatians did. You Have to attack. Brazil will always score goals against you no matter how heavily you defend, they're that good up front. The way to beat them is to exploit their weaknesses and score more goals than them. You won't beat Brazil defending heavily and playing on the break. That's why Germany never beat them.
