Brazil Beats Chile

An international friendly between Brazil and Chile took place at the Emirates Stadium in London with the Chileans losing yet another match to their South American rivals, 1-0 on this occasion.  The beginning of the game saw La Roja having good possession of the ball in hopes of finding an opening.  In the 11th minute Miiko Albornoz was given a yellow card.

As the 15th minute approached both goalkeepers were yet to make any serious saves as the ball was more active in the midfield area.  Thiago Silva got himself a yellow card for a scrappy tackle.  A free kick to Chile saw Alexis Sanchez take it but the ball was headed away to safety by Souza.

A free kick was awarded to the Brazilians after La Roja fouled Neymar.  The five-time world champions did not get the expected finish as the defence was on high alert.  The 45th minute saw Neymar get a yellow card for a foul on Gonzalo Jara.

The first half finally ended with no action at the posts from either side.  The second half began with Chile dominating play in their attacking half.  With their move towards the post Silva was there to make a clearing.

Miranda got a yellow card for a foul on Sanchez which saw Chile get a free kick.  Even though the free kick was taken at a good angle Sanchez could not get the shot on target.  Roberto Firmino got the opener for the Selecao in the 72nd minute which saw them take the lead.

Elias got himself a yellow card after a bad foul before the game ended with Dunga’s side getting yet another win as they beat Chile 1-0 at full time.
