Brazil vs USA Final

In FIFA Confederation Cup, Football on June 26, 2009 at 20:37

By Joe,


This must be one of the most surprising lineups for the Confederations cup final. The favorites to win the tournament, Brazil have reached the finals by winning all of their games. Their opponent in the final, USA are heavily tipped as underdog. Brazil have already beaten USA in the group stages second round with 3-0. No matter what the result will be, USA have achieved the most extraordinary result in their history of football by reaching their first ever international final. Brazil could retain and win their second consecutive Confederations cup.

Brazil have already met USA in the group stages of the Confederations cup final. They led the first half with 2-0 and added another goal in the 2nd half. A repeat of this result would come very handy for the Brazilian team in the Confederations cup final. Coach Dunga has not slacked in his choices of players for his starting lineup throughout the tournament. He will again start with his strongest line up so expect players like Kaka, Robinho and Luis Fabanio to lead the front lines. The only doubtful in the squad is defender Juan as he is still recovering from his knee injury.

USA would not like a repeat of their last week’s encounter with Brazil in Tshwane/Pretoria. Although, USA have made dramatic changes after that match, they have been successful in beating Egypt with 3-0 and stopping Spain’s 35-game unbeaten streak with the impressive 2-0 result in the Confederations cup semifinals. This will be Team USA first final in the international scene and it is certainly one of their best performances up to date. Coach Bradley will go into the Brazil game with high optimistism. Their last game must have given them more confidence and higher morale after dumping the European Champions out of the tournament. Sadly, USA do hold one of the most unfortunate records of being one of the dirtiest teams in the tournament, racking up their fourth consecutive red card.

USA play a very defensive game against the big nations. If you believe in statistics then Team USA will ultimately be bombarded with an average of 25 goal attempts from their opponent during the 90 minutes. If they can avoid conceding goals on the night then they will have every chance to win the Cup. The Brazilians have that scoring factor and it is predicted that they will be attacking the Americans from the start. So Brazil to win and Ladbrokes is offering at odds 1.33 to win.

  1. I think the US can do it.

    • Every team has a chance. Brazil has beaten USA before and hasn’t lost a game in the Confederation Cup. It would be very surprising if USA beat Brazil.

      • Just saying, it was surprising to me for USA to beat Spain; it was even more surprising to me for USA to beat them 2-0. I was surprised Brazil only won 1-0 against South Africa, and that goal was scored near the end of the game. I think USA is coming into the finals stronger than Brazil.

        I have no doubt that it will be a good match.

      • You are right about USA’s form. They have really took that giant step in gaining that experience to beat the best teams in the world. Brazil might not have won big against SOuth Africa but they still played well. Brazil are on form and USA hit one of the late. Therefore, its a receipt for a great final and one that everyone will speculate.
