Brazil vs Argentina Results for October 11 2014
Saturday afternoon saw Brazil beat Argentina 2 – 0 in a friendly held in Beijing thanks to two goals from Diego Tardelli.
Brazil took the lead 28 minutes into the match, Argentina had the chance to equalise with a penalty but Lionel Messi missed and Tardelli then sealed victory with a second-half header.
It was Brazil’s third straight victory after their humiliating 7 – 1 defeat by Germany in the World Cup. Since that landmark match the team has replaced Luiz Felipe Scolari as coach with Dunga. After the match Dunga said, “Brazil are the best team in the world with a great tradition.”
The game also saw the return of Kaka and Robinho to the Brazilian team and both are expected to feature in the squad while Dunga remains in charge.
Argentina will certainly be disappointed and as Messi said in regards to his penalty, “If I had converted, it could have changed the game.”
