International friendly result: Brazil 3-0 France

Despite enjoying domination throughout the ninety minutes of the game in Porto Alegre, the Brazilians scored not as much as they wanted. And yet they were undoubtedly satisfied to record their first victory over Les Bleus in 21 years.

The Selecao maintained the slow tempo and dominated the opening half, but struggled to convert the chances into goals. In the second half Brazil demonstrated quite a different attitude, pressing France high up the pitch, which led to an opening goal.

Brazil have broken the deadlock nine minutes into the second half by courtesy of Oscar’s goal from Fred’s delivery. Hernanes extended Selecao’s lead with a fine strike from the edge of the area six minutes before the final whistle, while Moura rounded off Brazil’s victory from the penalty spot in the added time.
