Brazil win Confederations Cup final on home soil after Neymar and Fred put World Champs to the sword.
Brazil won the Confederations Cup for the third time in a row after a Neymar masterclass helped inflict the first competitive defeat on Spain in 28 matches.
The young Barca striker was involved in Brazil’s opener as his cross caused confusion in the Spain back-four and Fluminese forward Fred, playing in his home town of Rio, swept the ball past Iker Casillas.
Neymar added a second before half-time shortly after a wonderful goal-line clearance from David Luiz and Fred wrapped things up early in the second half with a fine low finish.
Sergio Ramos missed a second half penalty for Spain after Marcelo tripped Man City new boy Jesus Navas and Pique was sent-off late on for a profession foul on Neymar, as the hosts threatened to humiliate the reigning World Champions.
