After the tough defeat in the debut against Italy by 3-2, the Brazilian team will seek to recover against the Dominican Republic on Wednesday for the second round of group D of the U20 World Cup. Both goals for Brazil were scored by Santos striker Marcos Leonardo about the end of the game.

In an interview with FIFA, the young striker was looking forward to the next game so that the team can show the best and start adding three points: “It’s a learning experience for the next game so that we can get together foot and (obtain) the victory,” said the forward.


He also showed his optimism for what is to come and that many times you can start off on the wrong foot but quickly find the path to victory: “We don’t have any more time to regret. It’s not how it starts, it’s how it ends,” added Marcos Leonardo.

The player, who was not present in the South American U20 tournament conquered by Brazil in Colombia, made his debut in a good way with two goals at the end to put Brazil in the game after conceding three goals in the first half. Although Brazil was far away at stake, they were able to cut the difference to one goal, which speaks volumes about the individual quality of their team.
