Cruzeiro Cruise to third U20 Brasileiro

Cruzeiro CrownCruzerio have been crowned the most successful team in the seven-year history of the Campeonato Brasileiro as they won their third-ever Under 20 tournament.

A Raposa emerged from an entertaining encounter with Internacional with a hard-fought 2-1 victory.

Both sides reached the final in superb form, playing impressively throughout the tournament and the game was seen as ideal preparation for next month’s Copa Sao Paolo youth tournament – the biggest of Brazil’s youth tournaments.

Alisson opened the scoring for Cruzeiro on Saturday night with a wonderful piece of skill which concluded in a curled effort hitting the top right hand corner of the net. The no.10 has been lined up for first-team action this year following a string of match-winning performances.

Valdivia equalised for Internacional but highly-rated striker Pedro Paulo secured the win with six minutes to go when he latched on to Mayke’s cross.
