Brazil also had their first victory against a big opponent when they defeated France 3-0 yesterday, thanks to an explosive second half.

Yesterday Brazil still did not play at the level that 200 million Brazilians expected of them.

The star mercenary for Chelsea, Oscar opened the score with a neat control and then finished in the penalty area in the 54th minute. In the 85th minute, Brazil had the second goal with a strong volley from Hernanes and a little help.

This was Brazil’s first victory in 21 years after six consecutive unbeaten matches against France.

However, the 3-0 score did not reflect the true situation on the field at the beginning of the match.

France, despite almost conceding a goal in the first minute because of captain Hloris’s clumsy handling of the match against Fred, was the side that played beautiful football and dominated the match.

France (blue shirt) started well, but couldn’t find a goal and gradually collapsed as Brazil regained its position.

By returning to the 4-2-3-1 formation by returning Neymar to the left wing with Oscar and Hulk as Fred’s defenders, Brazil gradually regained balance and created an attacking position with the away team.

It wasn’t until the 54th minute that the goal came for Brazil.

The goal opened an important turning point for both sides.

The two teams then made a series of personnel changes.

Oscar’s opening goal.

In the 85th minute, when France failed to coordinate a corner kick, Brazil’s new substitute striker Jo stole the ball from Payet’s feet and launched a quick counterattack.

The goal that sealed the 3-0 result from the 11 meter mark was also the work of a player who was reinforced by Scolari for Brazil in the second half – Lucas Moura.
