Brazil is in the final of the IBSA Grand Prix 2022, a blind soccer tournament being played in Puebla, Mexico. This Saturday (06), the team beat the hosts by 5 to 0 and qualified with the second best campaign of the qualifying phase, behind Argentina, against whom they will duel for the gold this Sunday, at 13:15 (GMT). It will be the chance for a rematch for Brazil, which on Wednesday met its first defeat in nine years in the sport when they lost to the Argentines 1-0.
The highlight of the Brazilian victory this Saturday was pivot Nonato, who scored three goals. Ricardinho and Cássio also scored.
Argentina secured the best campaign of the Grand Prix de Puebla by thrashing India 4-1 this Saturday. The team reached the third triumph in four matches played, which resulted in ten points added – one more than Brazil, which won three and lost one. Mexico and Costa Rica, third and fourth, respectively, will play for bronze at 11 am.
This is the first time that Brazil participates in the Blind Football Grand Prix. In the three editions already held, in 2021, 2019 and 2018, always in Japan, Argentina took the title. In addition to the title, the tournament will distribute a spot for the 2023 World Cup in Birmingham, England. It also counts as a preparation for the Copa América, which will take place in Cordoba, Argentina, from October 20 to 29.
