Gilette Brasil Global Tour

From the vault: Canarinho fly the nest

With 2013 having come to an end for the Selecao, Gillette Brasil Global Tour takes a look back at Brazil's 2-0 victory over Zambia at the Bird's Nest Stadium in October

Brazil made it four wins in a row after goals either side of half-time were enough to see off Zambia 2-0 at the Bird's Nest Stadium in Beijing.

Oscar fired the Selecao into a deserved lead on the hour mark when his long-range effort was deflected past Kennedy Mweene.

Dede then put the game beyond the Chipolopolo by leaping to meet Neymar’s free-kick and head the first goal of his international career.

Coach Luiz Felipe Scolari was delighted with what was his side’s 10th victory in 11, but warned the current squad that they still had lots of work to do before they can be assured of a place at next year’s World Cup.

"It was good to have a chance to watch the players who haven’t been with us since the beginning so that I can get an idea of what I can expect from them,” said Felipao.

“But it I have not yet decided who will make the cut."

He was true to his word. November’s Gillette International Soccer Series would see the Selecao welcome back some old friends and greet some new.
