Oscar inspires Brazil to 2-0 win
Brazil racked up their fourth successive victory by beating Zambia 2-0 in a friendly fixture yesterday.
Luiz Felipe Scolari’s men were far from their fluent best but, after a goalless first half, Chelsea midfielder Oscar came off the bench to open the scoring with a deflected effort.
Shortly after, the game was put beyond all doubt when Dede notched his first international goal with a close-range header.
Brazil almost got off to an electric start in the third minute when Neymar’s sublime free kick rebounded off the crossbar. Shortly after, his Barcelona teammate Daniel Alves hit a half-volley that narrowly drifted over the bar.
