VIDEO: Tottenham target Paulinho heads winner for Brazil

Tottenham Hotspur transfer target Paulinho proved his worth to his country in the Confederations Cup semi-final against Uruguay.

Brazil took on Uruguay in the Confederations Cup semi-final on Wednesday evening, looking to set up a showdown against the winner of Spain and Italy.

They got off to a poor start after Chelsea's David Luiz gave away a penalty, but QPR's Julio Cesar saved from former Manchester United man Diego Forlan.

Rejuventated striker Fred put Brazil up just before half-time, only for Napoli frontman Edinson Cavani to reply straight after half-time.

With the game looking to be heading to extra-time, Spurs target Paulinho rose to head home a corner and hand Brazil a crucial win.
