Background: INTRODUCTION: Egypt provided the shock of the second round of the World Youth Soccer Championships in Australia on Tuesday (6 October) when they beat West Germany 2-1 in Adelaide. In Melbourne, Brazil virtually made sure of going through to the quarter-finals by beating Italy by a solitary goal. They now only need to avoid defeat against South Korea to go into the next round.
SYNOPSIS: The match was a stormy affair with five players being booked. Brazil in yellow shirts mounted attack after attack but were thwarted either by poor finishing or a well-marshalled Italian defence. Djalma's first time shot went straight to the Italian 'keeper.
The crowd of 17,500 admired the skilful one-off play of the Brazilians. This flowing move was typical with the forward's shot just going wide.
Yet another attack broke down - Leomir shot just wide.
Brazil's winning goal came after 57 minutes when Djalma Baia found the net from a corner by Leomir de Souza.
In Adelaide, Egypt in red and white provided the shock of the tournament so far by beating West Germany. They took an early lead when Mohamed Helmi scored this goal in the 31st minute.
Four minutes later Germany struck back. Captain Ralf Loose unleashed this powerful 25 metre (yards) drive which gave the 'keeper no chance.
Egypt notched the winning goal in the 55th minute when Taher Amer converted a penalty after he had been brought down. The Germans repeatedly attacked in the last thirty minutes but the Egyptian defence held out. The win took Egypt to the stop of Group C and they also look almost certain to qualify for the quarter-finals.
