Brazil Vs. Sweden 2012: Final Score, 3-0 To Selecao Thanks To Leandro Damiao, Pato

Brazil's magical, seemingly endless summer tour has finally come to a conclusion, and their players can return to their club teams. They washed off the disappointment of their Olympic silver medal, outplaying Sweden for 90 minutes in Stockholm and coasting to a 3-0 victory.

Leandro Damiao scored the opening goal 32 minutes in, an easy tap-in header. Neymar made the goal, beating his man down the left flank as per usual and lofting a cross towards the far post. Damiao put himself in the perfect spot and nodded the ball into the net.

The game was rather uneventful for most of the second half until Alexandre Pato came off the bench and made his presence known. The often injured AC Milan man has had a solid (and relatively healthy) summer, and Milanistas will hope what they saw today was a glimpse into the future. He scored quick back-to-back goals to end the game, netting a close-range header in the 84th minute and a penalty in the 86th minute to seal an emphatic win for Brazil.
