JOHANNESBURG – The United States' hope of winning its first international title were dashed Sunday when Brazil won its second straight Confederations Cup title.

Lucio scored a late goal to give Brazil a 3-2 win over the United States.

The Brazil captain headed in a corner from Elano in the 84th minute to help the five-time world champions hold off a spirited American team that had taken a 2-0 lead at halftime.

Luis Fabiano scored two goals in the second half to put Brazil back in the match after Clint Dempsey and Landon Donovan had given the Americans the lead.
