Elano fires Brazil to glory

In a way.

He didn't start the final - Dunga continued to prefer Ramires, whom Elano replaced with Brazil 2-1 down and 23 minutes remaining. But with the scores level and six minutes remaining Ela floated in the corner which was headed home by Lucio - winning the 2009 Confederations Cup for Brazil. (Highlights HERE.)

It was the first piece of major international silverware won by City player since Lucien Mettomo picked up the 2002 African Cup of Nations.

Elano made a big difference when he came on for Brazil.

I really hope we don't get rid because I love watching him.
