Live commentary


Thanks for joining us for day four of the FIFA Confederations Cup here in Brazil. We hope you join us again tomorrow for the return of the hosts, as Felipao is set to name an unchanged Brazilian XI against Mexico. In the later game tomorrow, Andrea Pirlo will be looking to win his 101st Italian cap, and he'll be hoping it's as memorable as his 100th appearance.

We'll leave you with an image from today's Brazilian training session, with Confeds poster-boy Neymar looking to add to his sensational opening day strike tomorrow.

This could get intersting. If Spain "just" wins by four goals and Nigeria wins that puts them both at 6 points with Nigeria ahead by goal differance going into Sunday head to head.

We're a day away from Brazil's second game at this year's Confeds. Here are some head to head stats from their previous clashes with Mexico.

 - This will be the fourth Brazil-Mexico encounter in the Confeds, making it the most played fixture in the tournament's history (alongside Brazil-USA)
 - The game will be Brazil's 30th in the Confeds, the most in the tournament
 - Mexico are second behind them, with tomorrow's game their 21st
 - The pair have faced off 37 times, with A Seleção leading by 21 wins to ten
 - The most significant of those ten Mexico wins was the 1999 Confeds Final, which El Tri won in front of 110,000 spectators at the Azteca stadium
-  This game pits together the only two teams at the 2013 Confeds who have already won the tournament
 - The Mexican's last win in the Confeds was on 19 June 2005, eight years to the day tomorrow


Nigeria's first goal at this year's Confeds has now been accredited as an own goal by Nicolas Vallar. It had previously been awarded to Uwa Echiejile.
