Brazil Through to Beach Soccer World Cup Quarters

Brazil booked their place in the last eight of the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup after a closely fought 6-4 victory over Mexico.

The Mexicans held the lead three times during the match and were 4-2 up at one point in the second period thanks to goals from Morgan Plata, Oscar Gonzales, Ricardo Villalobes and Francisco Cati, with Buru and Andre getting the Brazilian goals.

The key to their success was the amazing form of Miguel Estrada in goal, who threw himself in front of everything that Brazil could muster towards the Mexican goal.

They couldn't hold out forever though, with Buru pulling the game back to 4-3 before goals from Junior Negao, Bruno and Benjamin in the final period saw Brazil come through and maintain their two-year unbeaten record.

Mexico now need Brazil to do them a favour in the final games of the group. If Brazil beat Russia then a Mexican victory against the Solomon Islands will see them progress to the quarter finals.

Today's games involving Latin American sides see Argentina face the United Arab Emirates at 11:00am local time with Uruguay squaring off against Senegal at 12:30pm.
