FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup
Brazil book quarter-final ticket with high-octane Portugal win
25 Nov 2019
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.
Oman - Portugal (17:50 local time)
Nigeria - Brazil (21:00 local time)
