Jonas score twice to help Brazil beat Egypt

Posted on by SoccerPunter

Valencia forward Jonas fired Brazil to a convincing 2-0 victory over Egypt in an international friendly at the packed Al Rayyan Stadium on Monday.

The 27-year-old broke his international duck in style, finding the net once in each half as the five-time world champions, fielding a second-string side, totally outplayed the ailing Africa giants on a pleasant evening in the Qatari capital.

Jonas, who last month created a sensation when he scored the second fastest Champions League goal in history by finding the net inside 10.5 seconds against Bayer Leverkusen, proved quite a handful for the Egyptians with his versatility on the pitch. Despite the absence of several stars, including Kaka, Marcelo and Neymar, Brazil were never found wanting in any department as they dominated possession throughout the match, hardly giving the Egyptians a chance at goal.

After a slow start, Brazil stepped up the pace and parked themselves in Egyptian territory to keep their goalkeeper Ahmed El Shanawi on his toes as the Selecao, led by Porto star Hulk up front, looked like scoring at every opportunity.

Hulk once again failed to break his scoring drought for the national side in what was his seventh match, but he set up the first one when he slipped in a pass from the edge of the box for the unmarked Jonas to tap the ball home in the 39th minute.

The Egyptians conceded another goal in the 59th minute when El Shanawi failed to collect the ball cleanly on a header and Jonas made no mistake with the rebound.

American Bob Bradley, who took over as Egypt coach recently, cut a forlorn figure as he watched his team get a lesson in football and the former United States handler has a task on his hands as he attempts to rebuild the team who were not long ago the kings of African football.

He is due to watch several Egyptian domestic matches over the next few weeks to select a pool of players to help the country qualify for the 2014 World Cup after agonisingly losing out to bitter rivals Algeria last year.
