Brazil made it to the finals of the Confederation Cup with a rather unconvincing display. Germany could not force the issue despite having controlled the match for a long time. Interestingly, it were the Germans who had most of the possession and dominated the second half. Twice they came from behind. They just could not finish inside the box.There were two debatable penalty kicks but the referee was consistent in his approach.

Adriano scored a couple and showed how he is a very important member of this side. Robinho appeared rather subdued perhaps due to the typical German defence. It is most likely that Brazil meets Argentina in the finals. Argentina can score where Germany failed.
