Brazil demolished the Dominican Republic 6-0 this Wednesday for the second date of Group D of the U-20 World Cup, which is played in Argentina, and recovered ground in a series that had Nigeria win 2-0 against Italy.
The reigning South American champion left behind the bitter taste of a debut with a defeat against the Azzurri and took oxygen in a high-level series.
Brazil attacked the Dominican goal, that he had lost in his debut against Nigeria, from the first minute of the game. However, failures in the definition and good saves by the rival goalkeeper, Xavier Valdéz, delayed the opening of the scoring.
But the sky opened up for the Brazilians at minute 37 with a header from Sávio and two minutes later Marcos Leonardo took advantage of the goalkeeper’s first mistake to make it 2-0.
Without taking their foot off the accelerator, Brazil gave form to the win in the second half with a score by Jean (57) and with everything resolved and the Dominican delivered Giovane (82), Marlon Gomes (90+1) and Matheus Martins (90+3 ) sealed the score.
Dominican who begins to say goodbye to his World Cup adventure, suffered the expulsion of Edison Azcona.
Brazil is second in Group D with three points and a goal difference of +5, while Nigeria leads with 6 points.
