Watch: Brazil's Under-15s Cut Through Northern Ireland Defence To Score Inside 20 Seconds

Brazil's Under-15 team are currently on a low-key tour of Ireland.

On Wednesday afternoon, the side defeated the Republic of Ireland Under-16 side in Dublin. Goals from Kaka (not that one) and Joao Peglow helped the side to a 2-1 win.

After taking their bow in Dublin, the team took the short trip north to Dungannon to play the Northern Ireland Under-16 side. It was the first time the countries had played at any level since the 1986 World Cup in Mexico.

The game in Tyrone could not have started any worse for the home side. Despite starting the game with possession, Northern Ireland conceded inside the opening 20 seconds.

Despite the early setback, Northern Ireland held their own, losing the game 2-0. Even at underage level, Brazil are still producing outstanding talents.

Hopefully we will see them back on these shores sooner rather than later.
