Austria 1-2 Brazil: Authority established in Europe

Austria 1-2 Brazil: Authority established in Europe

Full-time: Austria 1-2 Brazil
Goals: David Luiz (61′), Firmino (83′)
Match date: November 18, 2014
Stadium: Ernst-Happel-Stadion
Competition: Friendly International
Brazil line-up: Diego Alves, Danilo, Miranda, David Luiz, Filipe Luis, Fernandinho, Luiz Gustavo, Willian, Oscar, Neymar, Luiz Adriano.

Dunga decided to line up the exact same starting eleven that had played against Turkey in Istanbul 4 days ago, and he was certainly happy to see his men pulling off another win, this time with a 1-2 scoreline against Austria.

Brazil visited Vienna coming off an authoritative win against Turkey (0-4) last week, but the truth is that the “Escrete” found a tougher opposition in Austria. With a stubborn goalless draw observed at half-time and after having had to replace Miranda for Thiago Silva earlier in the first half, Dunga started changing his team’s dynamics when he introduced a couple changes around the 60th minute of the game and he would be rewarded just a couple minutes later…

Óscar took the corner kick on the left and PSG‘s centre defender, David Luiz, easily headed the ball past the Austrian goalkeeper at the far post, without even needing to lift his feet from the ground. It was David Luiz‘s 47th cap for Brazil and his 3rd goal for his country.

Austria would set things level on the scoreline 10 minutes later, after earning a precious penalty-kick following a careless sliding tackle from Óscar inside Brazil‘s box. Aleksandar Dragovic was the Austrian men stepping up to the mark and he had no trouble in beating Diego Alves by tricking him to throw himself to the wrong side.

When everyone was thinking that the 1-1 draw was most likely going to persist until the final whistle, one of Dunga‘s personal bets for the second half turned out to make all the difference. Roberto Firmino from 1899 Hoffenheim showed off all his talent in a brilliant strike from well outside the box and basically delivered Brazil the victory in a game where Neymar and company were struggling to breach into Austria‘s defensive line.
