Brazil came from being a goal down to equalise (Roseli 19') but any hopes they had of getting a result soon evaporated. Meinert restored the German lead three minutes later and Wiegman scored from the penalty spot just before half-time. Germany's superior fitness became evident in the final 12 minutes when they scored three more.
