Fernandinho says attitude change brought about Cameroon winFernandinho replaced Paulinho against Cameroon
Brazil midfielder Fernandinho last night scored the goal that ensured Brazil would top Group A at the World Cup, after Mexico threatened to spoil the hosts' party with a late flurry of their own against Croatia.
The Manchester City player, who came on as a substitute in the game with Cameroon, told reporters at SporTV after the full-time whistle: "Two matches and two goals. I am very happy for this."
"But the most important thing is that we secured the group's first position. Everyone in this group deserves the applause."
"I think the difference today wasn't the result itself, but the way the team played. We brought some of the same spirit we had during the Confederations Cup, its a change of attitude that led us to a good result."
