Brazil yesterday finished top of Group D with ease in their final group stage match of the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup Paraguay 2019, reports the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

This was after a 12 – 2 drubbing of Nigeria, which all but sealed the fate of the Super Sand Eagles after a miserable campaign that saw them lose all their matches at the group stage.

Mauricinho and Lucao put Brazil ahead before Egan-Osi Ekujumi gave the Super Sand Eagles a glimmer of hope with his tidy finish. Rodrigo added a third with a driven left-footed finish into the far corner, but Nigeria were back to within one again when captain Azeez Abu carved out a one-on-one chance and finished confidently past Mao.

However, Lucao got his second on the night with a precise volley. Brazil pulled away completely in the third period as Rodrigo completed a hat-trick, highlighted by an impressively-high bicycle kick.While Bokinha scored a brace and Rafinha, Bruno Xavier, Catarino and Filipe all got on the score sheet.Brazil will face Russia in the quarterfinals after the Russians finished in second place in Group C.
