Americas Qualifier Group A: Brazil 23 - 3 Mexico |03/03/2005|



Brazil sent Mexico packing from the Americas Qualifiers for the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup 2005 with a crushing victory in the final game in Group A.

In a stunning display of ruthless finishing, Brazil managed to beat their record of goals in a single game, the previous being a 22-1 win over Monaco, to the delight of the crowd on the Copacabana Beach.

A hat-trick from Juninho inside the first five minutes set Brazil on their way, with Nenem becoming the star of the show with six goals as the home side romped to an easy victory.

QUOTE FROM JUNINHO (BRAZIL)

“No matter who the opponent is, you have to play serious until the end. That’s what we did today: even though it was already a blowout win, we never stopped seeking to score more goals and ended up breaking our record of most goals scored in a single match. Now we are prepared for our semifinal match against Argentina, which is certainly going to be a tough one.”

QUOTE FROM JOSUE RODRIGUEZ ANGELES (MEXICO)

“It’s simply the match-up between the best and most experienced team in the sport against the newcomers. Our team comes from indoor soccer and this kind of result proves that we have a huge way to go. We know we have the skills to compete, but right now, as far as physical conditions and adaptation to the court are concerned, we need to develop a lot. Unfortunately, that’s the only way there is to learn and, from here, we only move ahead.”

Brazil 2 – 0 Argentina |05/03/2005|

Brazil made the final of the Americas Qualifiers for the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup, sneaking past rivals Argentina by a narrow 2-goal margin. After the deadlock couldn’t be broken in a hard-fought first third, Brazil’s account was opened after six minutes of the second, when a mazy Benjamin dribble took him through the Argentine defence, before he coolly slotted home the finish.

Having yesterday knocked 23 past Mexico, Brazil’s golden touch was somewhat lacking, although credit has to be given to the resolute Argentines. With the teams separated by the single goal going into the final period, it took a strike from Brazilian captain Junior Negao to finish off Argentina, and send the canary-yellows into tomorrow’s final, which will take place at 10:30 am local time.

Brazil
Robertinho, Junior Negão, Jorginho, Benjamin & Buru
Subs: Chumbinho, Juninho, Bruno, Neném & Pierre
Gols: Benjamin at 6’43” in 2nd period & Jr. Negão at 5’20” in 3rd period

Argentina
Salgueiro, Paradisi, Andrade, Petrasso & Hilaire E.
Subs: Hilaire F. Corrales G. Civale & Corrales A.
