Brazil hits Senegal for five to reach U-20 WCup final

Marcos Guilherme scored twice as Brazil rode a first half onslaught to a 5-0 demolition of 10-man Senegal and a place in the under-20 World Cup final in Christchurch on Wednesday.
Rogerio Micaleand’s team, who won two successive penalty shootouts to reach the last four, ended a 244-minute scoring drought in some style with three goals in the first 20 minutes to effectively wrap up their place in the final. Brazil were 2-0 up in the first seven minutes with Anda Correa conceding an own goal after a Joao Pedro cross deflected off his leg before Guilherme doubled the aantage. Boschilia put the game beyond any doubt in the 19th minute when Senegal goalkeeper Ibrahima Sy parried a cross into the midfielderand’s path before Flamengo defender Jorge completed the first half scoring in the 35th minute. Brazil will meet either Mali or Serbia in the final in Auckland on Saturday.
