The streets of Rio de Janero will not be quiet tonight.
Brazil rolled Spain 3-0 to take the title of Confederations Cup final at Maracana Stadium. Brazil, a five-time world champion, beat the reigning world and European champion and ended Spain’s 29-game, three-year winning streak.
“We beat the world champions today, but we know that the tournament that we will be playing next year will be a lot more difficult,” Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari said. “Now we have more confidence. That’s what we needed.”
“They were superior on every way,” Spain coach Vicente Del Bosque said. “They scored early. This is not an excuse but they had pressure on us all the time.”
Congrats team Brazil!
