Oscar France 1-3 Brazil

Brazil record their seventh win since their 2014 World Cup humiliation as they come from behind to beat France in Paris

Baku. 27 March. REPORT.AZ/ Brazil recorded their seventh successive victory since their 2014 World Cup humiliation as they came from behind to beat France in Paris.

Report informs referring to the foreign media,Raphael Varane powerfully headed in Mathieu Valbuena's left-wing corner to put the French ahead.

But Oscar equalised when he linked up with Roberto Firmino and poked the ball past France goalkeeper Steve Mandanda.

Neymar made it 2-1 as he collected Willian's pass and shot past Mandanda before Luiz Gustavo headed in a third.

The victory maintains Dunga's 100% record since he took charge of Brazil for a second time in July.

He is helping to restore some pride to Brazilian football after the side suffered their heaviest ever World Cup defeat when they were thrashed 7-1 by Germany in the World Cup semi-final in Belo Horizonte.

Luiz Felipe Scolari resigned as coach after the tournament, which also saw Brazil lose 3-0 against the Netherlands in the third-fourth play-off.

Only two of the first XI from that Germany defeat started in Paris and Dunga will be pleased with their fightback after they fell behind to Varane's 21st-minute header.

Chelsea midfielder Oscar equalised before Neymar put the South Americans ahead with his eighth goal in seven internationals.
