FIFA U-17 World Cup: Brazil Perfection Continues

The hosts completed a clean sweep of Group A at the FIFA U-17 World Cup Brazil 2019™ on Friday night, defeating Angola 2-0 at the Estadio Olimpico in Goiania.

Brazil accessed a higher gear in the second half after a mostly methodical opening period, with attackers Talles Magno and Veron converting in the 68th and 77th minutes, respectively to seal the win.
Talles Magno's breakthrough was a result of a well-executed corner kick. Defender Henri headed down Diego's service into the path of Brazil's No11, who redirected the ball into the net. Nine minutes later Veron made a spectacular, slaloming run from midfield and scored Brazil’s second. Both sides had already clinched last-16 places prior to the match.
