STOCKHOLM (AP) -- Brazil returned to the site of its 1858 World Cup victory and defeated Sweden 3-0 Wednesday night in the final international match at the Rasunda Stadium as Alexandre Pato scored twice in the second half.

With Pele on hand, Leandro Damiao headed in a cross from Neymar to beat goalkeeper Andreas Isaksson in the 32nd minute.

Pato entered in the 76th, scored on a header in the 85th and converted a penalty kick two minutes later after a foul by Pontus Wernbloom.

Friends Arena, which has a retractable roof, is under construction and is scheduled to open Nov. 14 with an exhibition between Sweden and England.
