Brazil thrashed 4-2 Italy and access first to the semifinals of the Confederations Cup
Brazil defeated Italy by 4-2 in the last game of the group and qualified as the first group to face the semifinals of the Confederations Cup. The host had a very tough game against the Trasalpinos, that was resolved in a very intense second part. Neymar scored again, on this occasion of direct foul (the second after Pasarella who scores a free-kick for Italy), scoring his third goal three in this tournament. Previously, yes Dante had opened the scoreboard at the edge of the break, and Giaccherini put the tables on the scoreboard.
Neymar's goal was followed by one more from Fred and another from Chiellini, who scored a curious goal after the referee first signaled a penalty. Fred, again, closed a result that evidenced the serious Italian problems, who have conceded eight goals in a group stage for the first time in their history.
This triumph was followed by the coaching staff and the players of the Spanish National Team., who will face Nigeria in the last match of their group. A win or draw against the Africans would give them first place and thus avoid the host team or cross with Italy, which is second. All analysts point out that Brazil-Spain should be the final of the tournament but there are still matches that can alter these cabal.
