Jamshedpur:

Brazil's Sao Paulo football club asserted their supremacy by overrunning Mohammedan Sporting Club 6-0 in a Super Soccer exhibition series match. After scoring just one goal in the first half, the Brazilian club pumped in as many as five goals in the second half at the JRD Tata Sports complex. The team, led by Marco Antanio, dominated the proceedings throughout with their silken skill and kept the Kolkatan outfit under pressure right from the word go. The black and white brigade went into a defensive shell from the beginning, thus allowing Sao Paulo to have control of the mid-field. Mohammedan custodian Gopal Das displayed his skill under the bar saving several accurate shots. Sao Paulo, however, surged ahead through a 20 yarder by mid-fielder Anderson Hernanes in the 42nd minute. Failing to keep pace with the visiting team, who perfected their moves with accurate passes, Mohammedan totally surrendered in the second half. Sao Paulo's second goal came just three minutes into the second half when mid-fielder Francisco Alex, receiving a cross inside of the box, placed the ball neatly into the goal. Alex increased the tally to 3-0 in the 64th minute. And just four minutes later, striker Pablo converted another good pass on the top of the box by hitting a powerful shot past the Mohammdean custodian to make it 4-0. Andre and Hernanes scored the fifth and sixth goals for Sao Paulo in the 77th and 92nd minutes to make the final score 6-0.
