Brazil have a late comeback to beat Egypt

Thrilling is not a word that can really describe the game that I just witnessed.

Uber-game - yeah, that's better.

Kaka scored a last-minute penalty to give Brazil a 4-3 win over Egypt.

Brazil had looked to be heading for a disappointing draw after Egypt scored twice in a minute through Mohamed Shawky and Mohamed Zidan, but Ahmed Al Muhamadi was sent off for using his arm to block a shot on the line and Kaka smashed in the penalty for his second goal of the match.

Now where are those who say the Confed Cup is not a big deal?
