Brazil on their way to London

A six nil thrashing of Uruguay ensured Brazil finished top of the South America qualifying group on Saturday evening. The win also confirmed Brazil’s place in the London Olympics next year.
São Paulo’s Lucas Moura was the star of the show. His blistering pace and lethal finishing helped him to a hat trick on a very poor pitch. Neymar grabbed a brace and Danilo scored the other for Brazil who finished the second phase on 12 points. Uruguay finished on ten and also qualified for London. Neymar was the competition’s top scorer with nine goals. Both teams will be in action once again in July and August in the U20 World Cup in Colombia. See the highlights here
