Brazil coach Carlos Amadeu conceded that his players were a bit nervous after conceding an early goal but gave credit to his players for regrouping themselves to score two goals and beat Spain 2-1 in their Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup campaign opener here today.

That allowed Brazil to claim the lead just before the half-time whistle, as Paulinho latched on to Marcos Antonio's fine through-ball before beating Spain goalkeeper Alvaro Fernandez with a rising finish.

FIFA rules stipulate that that a player who is in the 21-member squad named by their federation can only be replaced in case of an injury sustained in the period between the naming of the squad and first day of the tournament. "Our players were a bit nervous after the goal but they remained calm and started to play their football to score two goals", Amadeu said after the match. "We have no reason to not be confident in them", Amadeu said. "We conceded within five minutes and that was bad for us".

Brazil were warmly welcomed here and responded to the affection shown by the fans by entertaining football after they went a goal down in the fifth minute.

Brazil has been one of the most-followed teams in the state, with clubs from the South American nation like Atletico Paranaense and Ferroviaria Sao Paulo, and players including Ronaldinho and Roberto Carlos, getting to know the warmth of Kerala's football fans in the recent past.

41′: U-17 World Cup us not necessarily a reflection of the senior side and this match is proving that. We could see that since warm-up, people were cheering for us.


"The crowd were behind us the moment we took to the pitch. We sent him good vibes", Brazil captain Vitao said.

A RATHER slow start to the biggest clash of the group stages, Brazil taking Spain in the opening game of Group D at the JLN Stadium in Kochi.

"We have felt like home ever since we landed in India, and more so after coming to Kochi".

As the game progressed, the Spanish team began showing their flavour attacking and snatching away the possession from Brazil making them look helpless. "So the whole country is happy with today's performance", said Tiemoko after Niger eked out a 1-0 win over North Korea last night. We played better in the second half and we could have equalised. We still have areas to improve and we will try to do that.

"Humidity played a part (in our loss). We need to work on our set pieces", Denia conceded. "We have only been here for four days".
