Brazil edge S'gpore in friendly 3-0

Ronaldinho leads Brazil to easy win over Singapore

Led by AC Milan star Ronaldinho, Brazil’s pre-Olympics preparations were off to a smooth start as the samba kings defeated a stubborn Singapore Selection side 3-0 in a friendly match yesterday.

The Brazilians dominated possession for most of the first half of the match but failed to find the net as they missed several clear chances inside the penalty box area and faced stiff resistance from the Singapore side.

Werder Bremen midfielder Diego broke the deadlock in the 20th minute with a goal from just outside the penalty box, while newly signed AC Milan star Ronaldinho made his mark with a close range effort in the 27th minute to lift the score to 2-0.

Left-footed Brazilian forward Jo, who recently inked a four-year deal with English Premier League club Manchester City, found the net in the second-half with a close range effort to take his side up 3-0.

Brazil will head to Hanoi where they will play a friendly against Vietnam’s national side on Aug 1.

The South American giant won the World Cup a record five times but have came up short at the Olympics, finishing with a silver medal in the 1984 and 1988 Games, and bronze in 1996.

The Olympic tournament begins on Aug 6, with the final on Aug 23.
