Video: Diego Souza Scores After Nine Seconds For Brazil v Australia

Diego Souza scored after nine seconds of Brazil‘s friendly against Australia this morning.

The Sport Recife attacker was thrown into the team by Selecao manager Tite and rewarded his boss with a goal straight from kick off at Melbourne Cricket Ground.

It came from an Australia mistake as Bailey Wright passed straight to Giuliano, who burst forward before laying in for Souza to hammer home beyond Mitch Langerak in the Socceroos goal:

That’s a devastating start from Brazil – and definitely not what Australia wanted in a game they hoped would show how far football in the country has advanced.

But there’s plenty of time left for Ange Postecoglou’s men to get back into the game given how early Brazil scored.

Australia have a much-changed team to the one that beat Saudi Arabia in World Cup qualifying last week so have the likes of Tom Rogic, Aaron Mooy and Tomi Juric to call on off the bench.
