    Brazil downs El Salvador in beach soccer finale

    Action from the Copa Pilsener Futbol Playa match between Brazil (yellow jersey) and host El Salvador on April 13, 2014.

    SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador – Brazil claimed the 2014 Copa Pilsener Futbol Playa title with a 6-3 win over host El Salvador in the last round-robin match for both on Sunday. 

    The Brazilians completed play with a perfect 3-0-0 record, scoring 24 goals and conceding seven.  Switzerland (6 points) finished in second, El Salvador in third (3 points) and England in last (0 points).

    Though the Salvadorans needed a victory to have any hope any taking the crown, it was Brazil that started quickly, taking a 4-0 lead before the match reached the midway point.  Mauricinho and Rodrigo struck for a pair of goals each to heap further pressure on the Cuscatlecos.

    Frank Velasquez made it 4-1 five minutes into second period and Agustin Ruiz sliced further into the deficit a minute later.

    Bokinha and Digo Gama added additional goals to seal the triumph for the 13-time world champion.

    Twenty-year-old Abraham Henriquez added a consolation tally for El Salvador eight minutes into the third period.

    Earlier in the day, Noel Ott scored two goals as Switzerland topped England, 4-3.
