Luis Fabiano & Robinho impress in Brazil’s win over Chile; Goals from Serie B and Spain’s Segunda Division

Chile 0 – Brazil 3 (2010 World Cup qualifier, September 7, 2008) Early on Brazil looked dangerous, Luis Fabiano cleverly fed Robinho but his shot was saved by Bravo. Brazil broke the deadlock soon after, Luis Fabiano’s flicked header from Ronaldinho’s free-kick sailed into the bottom corner. Ronaldinho then had the opportunity to extend the lead from the spot after Diego had been hacked down, but his spot-kick was superbly saved by Claudio Bravo. But Brazil were soon 2-up, Lucio’s long ball was collected by Luis Fabiano, who teed up Robinho, and the Manchester City forward side-footed a beauty into the net. Brazil added a third in the second half, Luis Fabiano bagging his second of the match in the 82nd minute by wriggling free in the box and firing low across the keeper. Brazil’s Kleber and Chile’s Jorge Valdivia were both sent off in the second half.

El Salvador 5 – Haiti 0 (2010 World Cup qualifier, September 6, 2008) Zelaya was the hero, striking a hat-trick with Larios and Torres adding the fourth and fifth goals.

D.R. Congo 0 – Egypt 1 (2010 World Cup qualifier, September 6, 2008) Mohamed Aboutrika chipped the ball past the home goalkeeper after good play from Amr Zaki had taken the ball away from the DR Congo defence.

Middlesbrough 0 – Liverpool 1 (FA Premiership Reserve League Northern Section, September 3, 2008) It took 17 minutes for the deadlock to be broken as Daniel Pacheco’s right-wing cross found Jordy Brouwer, his initial header was tipped onto the bar by Jason Steele, but the rebound fell kindly to the Dutch striker who nodded into an empty net to give Liverpool the lead.
