London Olympics football: Brazil captain Silva wary of South KoreaLondon: Brazil football captain Thiago Silva said Sunday his team will ignore its status as favourites in Tuesday`s Olympic semi-final against South Korea at Old Trafford.

Brazil earned a berth in the tournament`s top four with a 3-2 victory over Honduras Saturday, reports Xinhua.

South Korea progressed by edging Britain 5-4 on penalties after the teams were locked on 1-1 after extra time.

"South Korea is a strong team that runs a lot and never gives up," said Silva, who last month joined Paris Saint Germain from AC Milan for a reported 42 million euros.

"In extra time against Britain they didn`t stop working for one another even though they had every right to be exhausted."

While South Korea`s speed is well known, Silva said it wasn`t the team`s only virtue.

"They not only have great physical training but they pass the ball well, rarely make mistakes and move with intelligence in attacks," Silva said.
