Brazil 2-1 Uruguay Semifinal Highlights


Paulinho-fred-brazilPaulinho headed a dramatic late winner as Brazil booked their place in the Confederations Cup final courtesy of a narrow 2-1 win over Uruguay in Belo Horizonte.
The midfielder rose majestically at the far post to power Neymar’s corner into an open net after Edinson Cavani’s low shot had cancelled out Fred’s first-half opener.

It was a bitter pill for La Celeste who thwarted the hosts for long spells and were left to lament Diego Forlan’s 13th minute penalty miss.

The result means Brazil will now compete for their third straight Confederations Cup title at the Maracana on Sunday where they will meet either Spain or Italy.
