Brazil scores with Paquetá in the last play of the game and is tied with Spain


Madrid (ESP) – The Brazilian team reacted, seeking a draw twice and deserving a 3-3 win against Spain, this Tuesday (26), in a great friendly played at the Santiago Bernabéu, in Madrid. Rodrygo, Endrick and Paquetá, this one in the 50th minute of the second half, scored for Brazil; Rodri, twice from the penalty spot – in controversial markings -, and Dani Olmo scored the Europeans’ goals.

The Brazilian team played with: Bento, Danilo (Yan Couto), Fabrício Bruno, Beraldo and Wendell; Bruno Guimarães (André), João Gomes (Andreas Pereira) and Paquetá; Vinícius Jr (Douglas Luiz), Rodrygo (Galeno) and Raphinha (Endrick).

Brazil returns to the field, in June, for two preparatory friendlies for the Copa América, against the United States and Mexico. It will be Dorival Júnior’s second call-up and the definitive one for the continental competition.

The game

Accredited by the 1-0 victory over England, in London, on Saturday (26), the Brazilian team played its first match at the Santiago Bernabéu. The team led by Dorival Júnior had an irregular start, under great pressure from the Spanish team, who opened the scoring in the 12th minute, with a penalty. Rodri took a good shot and deceived goalkeeper Bento.

The penalty was heavily protested by the Brazilian team. From the TV images, the impression is that João Gomes is just trying to block the opponent, without making a foul. The game did not have VAR (video referee).

Brazil’s first arrival in Spain’s area was in the 16th minute in a good individual play by Rodrygo, who passed two markers and passed the ball to Vinícius Jr. Afterwards, goalkeeper Unai Simón made the save.

The Seleção had difficulties in articulating plays and continued to be under pressure when Spain scored the second. Olmo dribbled past Beraldo, who caught the ball, and Bruno Guimarães before finishing into Bento’s corner.

The game was already approaching the end of the first half when Rodrygo received a gift from Unai Simón, who made a mistake with the ball. The Real Madrid striker didn’t waste the opportunity and also scored a great goal, covering the goalkeeper.

Range changes

Coach Dorival Júnior made four changes at half-time and replaced Bruno Guimarães with André, replaced Danilo with Yan Couto, removed João Gomes to use Andreas Pereira and brought Endrick onto the field, who replaced Raphinha.

The changes had an effect and Brazil returned with another impetus. In the 4th minute, after a corner kick, the ball fell to Endrick, who turned his body and shot from the left, undefended by Unai Simón.

It was his second goal with the Brazilian national team shirt. On Saturday, in Dorival Júnior’s debut in charge of the team, Brazil beat England 1-0 with a goal from the young 17-year-old striker.

After the equalizer, Brazil had the chance to turn things around, with Rodrygo running down the right. Unai Simón avoided the goal by stretching his arm.

Applause to Vini Júnior

Vinícius Júnior was an attraction in itself. He left the field in the 25th minute of the second half to a standing ovation from the fans who filled the Santiago Bernabéu. The campaign against racism arose because of the acts committed repeatedly against Vinícius Júnior over the last few seasons in Spain.

The friendly, which adopted the slogan “one skin; a single identity”, is part of a global campaign to combat racism promoted by the CBF and the Royal Spanish Football Federation.

Dorival removed Vinícius Jr, giving way to Douglas Luiz, at a time when the entire stadium revered the number 7 of the Brazilian team and, at 35, he replaced Galeno with Rodrygo. The game looked like the score was set, although Spain was in danger in several attacks – in at least four of them, goalkeeper Bento did very well.

At 39, Beraldo played the ball cleanly with Carvajal, who fell inside the area. The referee again awarded a penalty, to a flood of complaints from the Brazilians. Rodri charged again and made it 3-2.

Anyone who imagined that the Brazilian team would accuse the coup was wrong. The team continued fighting until the end and managed to equalize with a penalty, by the way, quite clear. Galeno was brought down in the area after a corner by Carvajal and, in the 50th minute, Paquetá struck with style and closed the score: 3-3.
