Star Sixes: Semi-finals results –  Spain beaten by France; Denmark shock Brazil

  • Brazil 2 – 4 Denmark

Denmark were suprise 4-2 winners over crowd favourites Brazil.

The Danes put Brazil to the sword when Jorgensen scored twice either side of this wonderful team move to tee up Hjalte Bo Norregaard for a tap-in.

Up by three, Denmark appeared to be cruising. However, it was to their credit that Brazil fought back and did so in style, courtesy of Elano.

The former Manchester  City forward bagged a brace, beginning with a spectacular strike.

He almost bettered it with his second.

Elano’s goals were also almost enough to peg Denmark back. Yet the Danes held on and even managed to pad their lead, courtesy of Junker, to book their place in the final.

  • Spain 25 France

France impressively swept Spain aside with a 5-2 victory. Giuly got things started with this smart finish from a tight angle. 

It became two when Vincent Candela turned in from close range after Pires had pulled the strings on the break.

Djorkaeff scored before Gaizka Mendieta and Garcia briefly got Spain back in it. However, two more from Giuly were enough to end any realistic Spanish hopes of a comeback.

Ultimately, Giuly, Pires, Djorkaeff and Co. had too much class and guile throughout what has been a thoroughly entertaining tournament. As a first attempt, this free-scoring legends format has to be considered a major success.
