Brazil v Uruguay – Confederations Cup Semi Final 2013

Brazil v Uruguay – Confederations Cup Semi Final 2013……..Brazil scrape into the final of the Confederations Cup

The victory followed an emotional and highly-charged encounter at the Estadio Mineirao.

Paulinho’s late header ensured the Selecao finally saw off a resilient Uruguay to set up a clash with Spain or Italy in the Maracana in Rio de Janeiro on Sunday.

Fred had given Brazil a scarcely-deserved first-half lead, prodding home Neymar’s cross. But Uruguay hit back shortly after the interval when Edinson Cavani capitalised on an error from Brazil captain Thiago Silva to strike a low shot beyond Julio Cesar.
