Brazil win Confed Cup

Tuesday, 30th June 2009 7:23am
Brazil won the second successive Confederations Cup after coming from behind to beat the United States 3-2.

Brazil were trailing by 2 goals at half time but three second half goals with no reply from the US meant the South American champions retained the Confederations Cup.

The US did well to reach the final after losing the first two matches and even in the final they were two up by half time.

For Brazil the semi-final against hosts South Africa was the only match they failed to score at least three goals.

In five matches Brazil scored 14 goals and conceded just five.

The team kept clean sheets in three of the matches.

The tournament gave the teams a feel of the conditions that they will experience at next year's World Cup.

Friday, 26th June 2009 7:45am

They South American champions will now meet the USA who beat Spain in a match to be played in Johannesburg.

USA stuns Spain to reach final

Thursday, 25th June 2009 7:06am
USA beat Spain 2-nil in the FIFA Confederations Cup semi-finals to reach the final where it will play the winner between Brazil and hosts South Africa.

This was the first time in this tournament that Spain had conceded any goals and they conceded at the wrong time whilst for the USA it was the second consecutive clean sheet.

Its interesting to see that when the USA played their last group match against Egypt their chances of staying in the tournament were very slim because they depended on other results but now they have reached the final.

Spain on the hand had a stroll in the group staged winning all three matches and conceding no goals at all.

Another major statistic of this match is that the USA prevented Spain from setting a new world record of 36 matches unbeaten.
