England Lose To Brazil In Blind Football Semi Final

August 23, 2010

If England couldn’t win, I hope they come third in the play-offs!

England’s hopes of reaching the final of the World Blind Football Championship are over after they lost 5-1 to Brazil in the semi-final.

Brazil, who are unbeaten in the tournament, outclassed England and will face the only other unbeaten side, Spain, in Sunday’s final.

The Spaniards left it late to beat China 1-0 in the second semi-final.

France beat Colombia on penalties to win the fifth place play-off, Argentina beat Japan and Greece beat South Korea.

“Brazil were superb and worthy winners and Sunday’s final ensures we have the only two unbeaten teams in it,” said tournament director Jon Dutton.

“The stage is set for a spectacular game and the third place play-off gives England a chance to sign off in style.”
