Confederations Cup: Revenge for Brazil, big win for host Japan
May 31st, 2001 12AM



Brazil gained revenge for its loss to Cameroon in the Olympics, beating the Indomitable Lions, 2-0, on the second day of the Confederations Cup. The Brazilians were playing without all their big-name players. They got goals from Washington and Miguel Carlos four minutes apart in the second half. Japan trounced Canada, 3-0, in Niigata with three goals in the second half. Shinji Ono, battling back from injuries that kept him out of the Olympics last year, opened with scoring with a 30-yard free kick and set up Hiroaki Morishima for the third goal. Akinori Nishizawa had the second goal on a header off a Morishima cross. D.C. United's Mark Watson started in defense for Canada. Holger Osieck also started three U.S. college products: Paul Stalteri (Clemson), Jason Bent (Maryland) and Davide Xausa (Portland).
