International

Brazil Smack Three Past France

Brazil completed their preparations for the Confederations Cup in perfect fashion with a 3-0 win over France in an international friendly on Sunday night.

Oscar, Hernanes and Lucas Moura provided the goals in a game where the French failed to make the most of their opportunities.

The South Americans could have taken the lead just a minute in after Hugo Lloris was robbed of the ball by Neymar but the Barcelona new boys saw the chance taken away but the foot of the French stopper.

France enjoyed the better of play in the opening stages but a change in tactics brought Brazil into the game as Hulk fired narrowly over in the 19th minute.

Mathuey Valbuena then had to make a vital block to keep Neymar from tapping in a cross from Oscar just after the half-hour mark.

After the interval France would not be able to continue frustrating their opponents though as Oscar slotted the ball past Lloris after being fed by Fred.

The Chelsea midfielder went close again moments later before Julio Cesar reacted well to stop David Luiz from scoring an own goal.

Lloris made a double save six minutes later but Hernanes would confirm the result late on when he scuffed a shot home.

There was still time for a third though as Lucas fired past the goalkeeper from the spot after Marcelo had been brought down in the area.
