Brazil took it for granted and they were over confident.

So Brazil cant even make is past the group stages? That is a shame, considering their dismal performance in the U-20 world cup final. They were supposed to redeem themselves by winning this U-17 tournament. Now they will end the year with only a Confederations cup.

"We weren't expecting that at all. After two years of hard work, it's hard to take. I feel sad and powerless. We beat Japan with a mediocre performance, we improved against Mexico, but conceded from a corner. Tonight, we had some excellent passages of play, but once again we gave away a goal from a set piece." Luiz Nizzo, Brazil coach
