Rafael da Silva Update – Manchester United Tickets


Rafael da Silva, Brazil and Manchester United

 Rafael is delighted with Brazil’s first-half performance in their 3-2 defeat of Egypt as the Seleção make their bid for gold in the 2012 London Olympic games.

Rafael, 21, was Sambafoot Man of the Match for his goalscoring performance in the match, as an integral member of the side in both attack and defence.

In the first-half, Brazil secured a three-goal lead thanks to Rafael, Leandro Damião and Neymar, but the second-half was more disappointing.

Egypt then scored two goals bringing the final score to Brazil 3-2 Egypt.

“We dropped a bit after the first-half. We conceded silly goals and we must correct that,” said Rafael after the match.

“What is important is the result. I think everything we tried worked in the first-half. The first-half was perfect. It could have been 5-0, or even more!”

The match was played in front of 27,000 pro-Brazil fans at the Millennium stadium in Cardiff, Wales. Brazil will play its second match against Belarus on Sunday. Egypt will face New Zealand the same day.

Watch Rafael and Ryan Giggs play live at Manchester United this campaign.
