The Confederations Cup finals ended in a 3-0 victory for Brazil as they notched one goal after another against Spain on Sunday at the Marcana.

Brazil took to the field with all their engines firing, scoring their first goal of the match just two minutes into play. Fred, who was on the ground as a cross from Hulk came flighted into the 18-yard-box, managed to get his right foot on the ball, sending it into the back of the net.

Neymar scored Brazil’s second goal just before halftime, after receiving a perfectly timed pass from Oscar. In the second half, Fred came on and scored the final goal for Brazil and of the match, getting on the end of another cross from Hulk.

Spain’s best chance to wage a comeback came in the 53rd minute, when a foul against Jesus Navas earned the losing side a penalty kick. Sergio Ramos stepped up to make the attempt, sending the ball just right of the goal post.

The loss for Spain was their since a their loss to Switzerland in the 2010 World Cup opener – 29 games ago. Brazil, who’s been struggling on the pitch as of late, has seen a surge of momentum as the 2014 World Cup – which they’re hosting – fast approaches.

Earlier in the day on Sunday, the third-place match between Italy and Uruguay ended in penalty kicks after a hard-fought and evenly matched 90 minutes and overtime play resulted in a two-two draw. Italy bested Uruguay in the shootout 3-2.
