Paulinho header hands Samba Boys win over Uruguay.
BBC co-commentator Mark Lawrenson may have described him as ‘meh’ but Tottenham target Paulinho proved the once-moustachioed Match of the Day guru wrong with a late winner for Brazil in the Selecao’s 2-1 Confederations Cup semi-final win over Uruguay.
With extra-time looming, the Corinthians midfielder rose at the back post to head a corner home and sent the home crowd into raptures.
Uruguay missed a first half penalty before Fred gave the hosts the lead. Chelsea target Edinson Cavani equalised for Uruguay but Paulinho had the final say.
