Brazil made a stunning comeback from behind to seal a 2-1 victory against Mexico to grab a win in the FIFA U-17 World Cup 2019. The match was held at Brasilia's Estadio Bezerrao stadium. The hosts conceded a goal in the starting 20 minutes of the second half but managed to slot two goals to win their fourth U-17 title. All credit should go to Lazaro who came in as a substitute to score the winner in the third minute of stoppage time. Brazil had massive support at home with 13,000-plus fans attending the game.

Brazil managed to create a lot of chances but failed to capitalise in the first half. They were missing quality in terms of finishing. Veron and Kaio Jorge got close in the first 45 minutes but their shots missed the target. Peglow’s outstanding free-kick hit the crossbar in the 17th-minute. Mexico scored the opener of the match in the 66th minute thanks to Olivan’s goal. However, Brazil made a late comeback to beat Mexico. The hosts won a penalty when Alejandro Gomez fouled Veron in the box. Kaio Jorge made no mistake to score from the spot for the equaliser. Lazaro scored a stunning volley in additional time to hand Brazil their World Cup triumph.
