FIFA U20 World Cup: Casadei Leads Italy to victory against Brazil


Cesare Casadei inspired Italy’s victory against Brazil in their opening group match at the FIFA U20 World Cup, on Sunday.

Casadei scored a brace and Italy were rampant in a dominant first-half performance which saw them score three unreplied goals.

Brazil’s late resurgence saw Marcos Leonardo hit a fifteen-minute brace (72′ and 87′), but it wasn’t enough to earn the five-time winners a point.

The teams return to action on May 24, when Italy takes on Nigeria and Brazil will hope to get their campaign back on track with the match against Dominican Republic.
