Brazil swept a pair of friendly games played in Sweden, defeating Chile, 4-0, on Saturday in Gothenburg and Ghana, 1-0, on Tuesday in Stockholm. Ronaldinho
scored twice against Chile, converting a controversial penalty and scoring direct from a free kick, for his first goals for Brazil in almost two years. Kaka
scored the other goals.
In Tuesday's game against Ghana, a rematch of their 2006 World Cup
second-round match Brazil won, 3-0, Vagner Love
scored the game's only goal, and Brazil held on for the win. Goalie Julio
made several key stops. Ghana had midfielder Haminu Dramani
sent off in the 77th minute.
The games marked the first time Ronaldinho, Kaka
started together since Dunga
took over as Brazil coach.
Dunga tried to downplay the presence of
Brazil's attacking stars.
"The whole team is important, not just a few individuals," said Dunga after the Chile game.
