Brazil and USA gave us a spectacular ending to the Confederations Cup 2009. USA showed the world that they are a team to be fancied in any competition by their 2-0 semi-final victory over Spain and almost taking down Brazil in the finals. With a 2-0 lead from the first half, USA were unable to hold out.
Goals from Luis Fabiano in the 46 min and 74 min plus a thunderous header from Lucio in the 84 min was enough to land Brazil the Confederations Cup. Brazil picked up the tempo in the second half and dominated the field. They were truly deserved winners.
However, the ultimate winner was not Brazil but the Lord Jesus when some of the Brazilian players were seen parading in their "I love Jesus" and "I belong to Jesus" t-shirts during the celebration. The most obvious was when Lucio was lifting the Confederations Cup surrounded by his fellow teammates and official while proudly displaying to the world looking on that he loves Jesus.
These Brazilian players have been propagating the Gospel to the world at large on many occasions. They have shared their testimonies at many Christian gatherings and are great living testimonies for Jesus. This is part of sports ministries' strategy of reaching the world through sports.
