Brazil Betters New Zealand

Brazil’s march toward its first ever Olympic gold in men’s football ( that’s soccer to us American gringos) continues.

The Seleção is moving on to the quarter finals after their 3-0 win against New Zealand yesterday at St James’ Park in Newcastle.

Already through to the quarter finals, Brazil was expected to win yesterday’s game, only needing a draw to finish atop their group ( Group C). With their easy victory accomplished while Oscar rested and Alex Sandro left them a man down after second yellow card early on in the match, they played strong with no Chinese, South Korean or Indonesian badminton scandal like match throwing antics.

Brazil will next take on Honduras, Saturday at 1pm (Rio time) in their first knockout round match.

I, being in Brazil and outside of NBC’s reign of prime-time power and editing mishaps , will be watching the game live and unedited on TV.
