    Background: Soccer; and Brazil turned on the pressure in the second half to cruise to a 2-0 win over Mexico in an unofficial international in Rio de Janeiro, on Sunday (8 June). The match was the first of a series of friendly internationals to mark Brazil's third World Cup title ten years ago in Mexico.

    SYNOPSIS: Mexico, the under-dogs, playing here from left to right, put up a brave fight and in a lack-lustre first half looked capable of scoring the first goal. Here Brazilian keeper, Raul, rails to clear, but the Mexican striker, Mendizaba, is unable to capitalise.

    Brazil's moments of attack in the first half were brief. Winger, Ze Sergio, sets up this attack but the ball clears the goal. The goalless first half did not please the far-from capacity stadium.

    Brazil's scored immediately after the interval when Serginho netted. But a move set up by Mendizaba again tests their defence.

    One goal up, Brazil began to take a firmer grip on the game. In the 67th minute Brazilian mid-fielder Pedrinho took the ball up the centre and placed it perfectly for Serginho to slam a magnificent goal in the net from just inside the penalty area. Brazil 2, Mexico, nil.

    Minutes later it looked like Brazil might make it three when Eder brought the ball up the wing, two Mexican defenders. Elinho gives Serginho the opportunity to score a double but the keeper saves.

    In the final quarter Mexico tried desperately to take more possession form the home side. But despite some promising breaks, they were unable to notch up a goal. Brazil held onto their two goal lead to the final whistle.. An encouraging first game for Brazil's new coach Tele Santana.
