Sandro, Hernanes push Brazil past Gabon

BY foxsports • November 10, 2011

Brazil beat host Gabon 2-0 in a friendly to spoil celebrations marking the opening of D'Angondje Stadium on Thursday.

The party didn't kick off well because of an 18-minute delay for a power failure and the poor condition of the soaked field.

In a match Brazil dominated, Sandro scored from a cross by Bruno Cesar in the 11th minute, and Hernanes headed in a parried save in the 34th.

Gabon's best chance was two minutes earlier, when Levy Madinda's free kick hit the crossbar.

Brazil will meet Egypt in another friendly on Monday.
