Man City Star Fires Brazil Past World Champions Germany

International Friendly Report: Germany v Brazil 27 March 2018

By SL International - Mar 27, 2018 10:56 PM

International Friendly 

Result: Germany 0-1 Brazil

Date: 27 March 2018

Venue: Olympiastadion

Gabriel Jesus scored the only goal of the game to hand Brazil a 1-0 win over world champions Germany in an international friendly on Tuesday evening.

Germany and Brazil met for the first time since Die Mannschaft's famous 7-1 win over the Samba Kings at the 2014 World Cup semi-final in Rio de Janeiro.

Brazil were the ones with the early pressure this week after efforts from Jesus, Philippe Coutinho and Willian.

The Germans were the first with a shot at goal, although it went horribly wide of goal from the boot of Ikay Gundogan.

Germany looked dangerous every time they got on the ball and, as such, chances fell to them in the form of Mario Gomes, Leon Goretzka and Joshua Kimmich.

Brazil were struggling to get in their rhythm, but after breaking on the counterattack, they had the perfect opportunity to go in front through Jesus, but he embarrassingly put the ball over the top.

The Manchester City man redeemed himself with the opener with his head, despite the best efforts of Kevin Trapp to keep it out on 38 minutes, 0-1.

Brazil were keeping up their high-pressured game at the start of the second half, despite struggling to break down the German rear-guard.

The visitors almost found a second after Paulinho, who got the third in the 3-0 win over Russia last time out, found himself in the box and forced Trapp to a save.

A quick break from Marcelo set up Coutinho after the world champions were caught napping, but the latter wasted the opportunity.

Another golden opportunity went astray after Jesus failed to direct his header into an empty net following a corner, as Brazil ran out victorious.

@alizebucs1986 : Reserves to the first eleven. Goretzka, is the heir apparent to Mezut Ozil, whereas Brandt and Sane, will take over from Draxler and Muller. Scary staff......Germany will the WC again.

Two successful football nations. Brazil's defense though - Miranda(34), Silva(34) and Alves(35) have a combined age of 103 years. Will be interesting to see how their experience copes with the youthfull pace of Sane, Werner and Brandt.
