Shakhtar players on international duty: Fred got on scoresheet

On 10 October, the Brazil Olympic national team played a friendly game.

Brazil 6-0 Dominican Republic

Goals: 1:0 Gabriel Jezus (12), 2:0 Maicon (27), 3:0 Luan (29), 4:0 Valdivia (66), 5:0 Fred (77), 6:0 Gabriel Barbosa (90)

Brazil: Ederson, Maicon (Rodrigo Caio, 67), Rodrigo Ely (Luke 67), Doria (Maicon, 72), Douglas Santos, Lucas Silva (Wallace, 72), Fred Felipe Anderson (Valdivia, 61), Kennedy (Gabriel Barbosa, 61), Luan (Vinicius Araujo, 67), Jesus Gabriel (Vitinho, 61)

Shakhtar’s midfielder Fred was fielded in the starting line-up.  Brazil quickly opened the scoring after a shot from Gabriel Jesus. Then Maicon scored after bearing down on goal. Soon Brazil extended their lead further: Luan slotted in a cross to make it 3-0.

Dominicans have barely had any chances to score. Brazil continued playing free-flowing football, orchestrating one attack after another. It was reflected in three more goals in the second half. Fred’s goal proved to be special: the Pitmen’s midfielder fired the ball in with a left foot from outside the penalty area!

The Brazil Olympic national team will play their next match on 13 October against Haiti.
