Lucio Completed Brazil's Victory Win in Confederations Cup 2009

Defending champion Brazil comes from two goals down in the Confederations Cup final to defeat the United States and retain its title.

The Brazilian squad was taken by surprise early in the match when Cling Dempsey put the US ahead just after 10 minutes.

The Americans astonished their rivals once again 17 minutes later when London Donovan doubled the lead, to show that his side's 2-0 victory over Spain in the semi finals was not just a coincidence.

Brazil's Luis Fabiano narrowed the lead one minute after the break to promise an exciting second half. Fabiano scored, stuck again to score his fifth goal in the tournament and equalized the match in the 74th minute.

Captain Lucio completed Brazil's come-from-behind 3-2 victory six minutes from time.

It was the third time Brazil won the Confederations Cup following triumphs in 1997 and 2005.

Earlier on Sunday, European champions Spain defeated host South Africa 3-2 in extra-time to clinch the third place.

Brazil's Kaka, who has recently signed with Real Madrid, was voted best player of the tournament and received the Golden Ball.

Fabiano collected the Golden Boot for being the leading scorer with five goals and US goalkeeper Tim Howard received the Golden Glove as the best in his position.
