Brazil down Angola to take maximum points from Group A

  • Brazil dispatch Angola 2-0 in Goiania
  • Talles Mago and Veron tally in second half
  • Hosts finish first in Group A with nine points

The hosts completed a clean sweep of Group A at the FIFA U-17 World Cup Brazil 2019™ on Friday night, defeating Angola 2-0 at the Estadio Olimpico in Goiania. Brazil accessed a higher gear in the second half after a mostly methodical opening period, with attackers Talles Magno and Veron converting in the 68th and 77th minutes, respectively to seal the win. Both sides had already clinched last-16 places prior to the match.


Talles Magno's breakthrough was a result of a well-executed corner kick. Defender Henri headed down Diego's service into the path of Brazil's No11, who redirected the ball into the net. Nine minutes later Veron made a spectacular, slaloming run from midfield and scored Brazil’s second.


Angola goalkeeper Cambila made a sensational double save on Diego in the 29th minute, first denying his right-footed shot then the follow-up attempt with his head. The Palaquinhas' formidable wingers were mostly kept in check, though Zito did break free and rip a shot into side netting in the 55th minute.
