After a slow start at the FIFA U-20 World Cup in Argentina, Brazil came back with a convincing win against the Dominican Republic. After losing the opening game against Italy, Brazil beat the Dominican Republic by 6-0.
Goals from Savio, Marcos Leonardo, Jean Pedroso, Giovane, Marlon Gomes, and Matheus Martins were enough to seal the win for the Brazilian team.
However, note that Group D has now opened up following Brazil’s big win against Dominican Republic. On the other hand, fans have praised Brazil’s fighting spirit despite starting the tournament on a losing note, but this article will focus on one Brazil player that the Flying Eagles should watch out for in round three.
The 19-year-old forward played only 66 minutes against the Dominican Republic, but his impact was felt. He registered a goal and assist during his time on the pitch, which shows how dangerous he can be.
Against the Dominican Republic, Savio was great with crumbling as he played from the right wing, but his most dangerous ability is delivering great balls into the box.
He attempted three long balls against the Dominican Republic, and they were all successful. Note that it was also his left-footed corner kick that led to Jean Pedroso’s header in the second half.
On the other hand, recall that Savio also registered an assist as a second-half substitute in Brazil’s opening game against Italy. Hence, Ladan Bosso and his boys should watch out for the PSV forward when they face each other in round three.
