Recap: Brazil vs Tunisia 1:4 (Round of 1) (Sport<>)
The Brazil national team is satisfied after its 1-4 victory over Tunisia in the eighth round of the World Cup on Wednesday night, which set up a meeting for the Brazilians against Israel at the FIFA U-20 World Cup in Argentina. The match will take place at the San Juan Stadium on Saturday at 20:30 Israel time (Kan11).
Brazil led 0-2 and looked in control, but lost a player who was sent off, and quite pressed back in the second half against a weakened Tunisia. Despite this, they managed to score two more excellent goals in extra time, turning a difficult game into an impressive defeat.
After the game, the Brazilian media did not refer to the next opponent, the anonymous Israel, and only wrote dryly about the identity of the opponent, and who she beat in the eighth final.

Brazil coach Ramon Menezes is pleased with the victory and full of confidence: "At first we dominated, and it is natural that after they sent us a player away, things changed. You get a little nervous backwards, and it's hard to play with that pressure anyway. But we were ready, and we showed a balanced ability."
According to him, "The highlight of this team is unity, and that is something that is very satisfying to me. You don't win a game with 11 players, you win as a team."
He played 32 years ago for Brazil at the World Cup, losing the final to Portugal on penalties in 1991. "The feelings are the same, and we're trying to convey confidence to them," he said. And what will happen to Israel? "Every game is tough, but things depend on us," the coach said ahead of the quarter-finals, "but what's encouraging is that we're progressing and improving from game to game, and connecting."
