[FESTIVAL INTERNATIONAL ESPOIRS] Brazil, which did not qualify for the Under-20 World Cup, won the Festival International Espoirs for the seventh time with a
1-0 win over Colombia at the Stade du Ray in Nice. Cruzeiro striker Vinicius Araujo had the game's lone goal in the 3rd minute.
Brazil swept all honors as Yuri Mamute was named the top player, Danilo finished runner-up, and captain Doria was named the best defender. Vinicius Araujo was the top goalscorer.
Brazil will stay in Europe, moving to Switzerland for a tournament against Egypt, Ghana and Kosovo.
Though Brazil did not qualify for the Under-20 World Cup that begins later this month, it kept its U-20 team together as it will be the basis for its 2016 Olympic team for the Rio de Janeiro Games.
