Brazil beat France in friendly

5:27 pm on 11 June 2013

Brazil scored three times in the second half to beat France 3-0 in a football friendly in Brazil, ending a six-match winless run stretching back 21 years against their opponents.

Oscar, Hernanes and Lucas scored the goals to give Brazil just their second win in seven matches under coach Luiz Felipe Scolari, who took over in November.

France, beaten 1-0 in Uruguay last week, have lost four of their last five games and five out of 11 since Didier Deschamps took over following Euro 2012.

The match was Brazil's last before the Confederations Cup which they host.
