The verdict is in – Brazil defeated Spain in the 2013 Confederations Cup in Brazil. “The best in the world” eliminated “the best in history” at the legendary Maracanã, with a final score of 3-0. The happening did not live up to the hype with Brazil disposing of Spain’s storied club quite easily. Tales Azzoni of Yahoo Sports writes:

“Fred scored two goals, Neymar added another and host Brazil defeated world champion Spain 3-0 to win the Confederations Cup on Sunday night as protesters clashed with riot police outside 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 in competitive matches.

Fred put Brazil ahead in the second minute, Neymar doubled the lead in the 44th with his fourth goal of the tournament and Fred added his fifth in the 47th.

Brazil, which won its third straight Confederations Cup, has not lost a competitive home match since 1975.”

Congratulations Brazil!
