The Argentines chanted ‘Ole ole’ to Brazil, in the defeat that Italy gave them in the U-20 World Cup
In less than 15 minutes, the Italian National Team thrashed Brazil, the South American champion, in the U-20 World Cup taking place in Argentina. The European team took the lead after 11 minutes with a goal from Matteo Prati, and with an inspired Cesare Casadei, at 27′ and 35′, they were already winning 3-0 in Malvinas Argentinas.
While the assistants chanted him the ole in the stands to his eternal rival in South America, Italy had fun and made the canarinha look bad, who even starred in a blooper in one of the goals.
However, the recent champion of the continent did not lower her arms and in the complement she reacted with Marcos Leonardo. With the ‘9’, Brazil managed to get excited about scratching a point. Italy made her debut bitter by defeating her 3-2, although the scenario could have been worse.
The Brazilian cast woke up 20 minutes from the end and through Marcos Leonardo, found the way to discount. Barely 15 minutes went by from the 3-1 and the same ‘9’ was in charge of putting the final 3-2. Tough defeat for Brazil, which was counting on a debut victory against the Italians.
In this way, Italy took command of group D together with Nigeria. The Africans beat the Dominican Republic in their debut, 2-1. Brazil will have to go out and beat the Central Americans in the middle of the week to get the thorn out of the World Cup.
