  • fifa.noJSVideoMessage It took two minutes for the deadlock to be broken in the FIFA Confederations Cup 2013 Final between Brazil and Spain at the Maracana. Hulk lofted a ball into the box and both Neymar and Fred went to compete for it; the ball eventually dropped to the latter who struck it high beyond Iker Casillas in goal. The Seleção were buoyed by their fast start and overwhelmed the reigning world champions to win 3-0 and lift their third Confederations Cup Trophy in a row. Fred bettered Michael Laudrup’s record from 1995, when he gave Denmark the lead against Argentina in the eighth minute. The Brazilian No9 scored again in the 2013 final, increasing his personal haul at the tournament to five. Spain’s Fernando Torres also scored five but played fewer minutes, so he walked away with the adidas Golden Boot for leading goalscorer.

The pair are familiar foes, meeting twice in qualifying. Neither had conceded at Korea Republic 2017 until the last eight and, as a result, the game was a well-marshalled one. Venezuela were the tournament’s top scorers but, besides a spurned header by Nahuel Ferraresi, were largely frustrated. Marcelo Saraachi went closest at the other end, seeing his low effort beaten away by Wuilker Farinez.
