Why didn't Brazil's 10 panic against England's 11?

Dad just read this in a Brazilian newspaper (Globo).

You know how Brazil seemed strangely composed when Ronaldinho Gaucho was
sent offf? And how Scolari started what at first seemed an overly defensive
mid-field? And how it seemed inevitable, especially after Lucio's braincramp
in the first-half, that England would equalise given Brazil's "notorious"
defence?

Well apparently the team had been having workout training sessions regularly
with less players. 10 versus 11. Felip?o was strongly criticised by the
players, the coaches, everyone.

"O Felip?o, porque o senhor esta fazendo isso?" [Why are you doing this?]

"Deixa que voces v?o ver". [Just wait and see]

...he rasped in his slightly awkward Portuguese. Training a man down paid
off huge, Felip?o. Even if the blame is on England's shoulders for playing
lethargically, your scheme worked brilliantly too. O senhor esta de
parabens.

They were playing England. No reason to worry.

Err... isn't 5-on-6 a well-established training move everywhere in the world?

Even the Australian commentators remarked how *they* do it (yeah, yeah - and
look where it got them LOL)

Apparently they practised differently from what you mention above (a common
enough training session), else I don't think it would've elicited the
sports' writer's commentary.

I first heard about this in Scolari's post-match comments

http://fifaworldcup.yahoo.com/en/020621/2/16ae.html

(On what he said to the players after Ronaldinho's expulsion): It was just a
case of getting the three middle defenders to do their job properly. Putting two
guys on the side, the fullbacks to move freely and two guys in the midfield,
helping, pushing with Rivaldo making the bridging, the connection between them.
I must tell you they did the right job. Sometimes we have been practising with
10 players and the media, especially the Brazilians, did not understand what we
were doing. This is the moment I want to tell the players they did the job when
it was demanded.

Ha! Brazil already knew that they would have to play
a match in 10 versus 11, to falsely "compensate"
for the refereeing errors against Turkey and Belgium.
