The Brazil-Italy game served as an appetizer of what we will see in Salvador de Bahia, on June 22nd in the game where both teams will play in the group stage of the Confederations Cup.
Brazil made their thing and tried in a shy way through Oscar, which at times remembers the best of Kaká in the speed with which he seeks the forward players with his passes.
Italy continued to have possession of the ball, but Brazil struck first. In the 33rd minute Filipe Luis pulled a center to the area that after being combed by the azzurros, fell at the feet of Fred, who scored with no opposition from Buffon. A few minutes later a great tactical play by Neymar who was able to assist Oscar that scored the second goal.
The second part began with the appeal of seeing the debut of Cerci with the Italian National Team, replacing Pirlo, who put some good centers . This improvement in the game was soon reflected on the scoreboard. In the 54th minute Danielle De Rossafter scored with a head shot, after a corner, just three minutes later, Balotelli tied the match with a great long distance shot which left Julio Cesar helpless.
With the match tied, both teams knew they would have to play until the end. Italy, with possession, shaping each one of their chances. Brazil, with counterattack, that made Scolari to bring Kaka in replacement of Oscar seeking for more speed in the Brazilian counter.
