Brazil book quarter-final ticket with high-octane Portugal win

The most played match in Beach Soccer World Cup history lived up to its billing and delivered high quality entertainment as Brazil edged Portugal in a 16-goal thriller to seal their place in the quarter-finals with a game to spare.

As expected, Portugal gave holders Brazil a run for their money, but ultimately the beach soccer kings had too much for their opponents on the evening.

Portugal clawed their way back into the game after being down 7-3 at one stage, coming all the way back to level things at 7-7, but a Filipe penalty and a late, long-range Datinha strike proved to be the difference.
