Gabriel Jesus’s first-half header spared Brazil’s blushes as they defeated Germany 1-0 in Berlin to end the world champions’ 22-game unbeaten.
The Selecao restored some lost pride following the humiliating mismatch between the sides in their previous meeting, when Germany crushed the hosts 7-1 in a World Cup semi-final clash in 2014.
The friendly provided his side with a welcome confidence with less than three months before the World Cup starts. Brazil did not concede during the international break as they also defeated Russia 3-0 in Moscow.
However, it is important to note that the Brazilians beat a team from Germany where seven major players were missing.
