The first half of Brazil-Ivory Coast was much more like an anaconda squeezing the life out of its prey than a proper hunt, but Luis Fabiano did manage to fire a shot that might take down the Elephants. His roofed goal in the 25th minute put the Seleção up 1-0, a lead they maintained until halftime.
Oh, and stay with the video until the end. I picked it because of the celebration.
