DERBY, ENGLAND (AP) - Daniel Alves and Alexandre Pato scored for the second straight game, leading Brazil over Ukraine 2-0 Monday night in an exhibition that maintained the Selecao’s perfect record under new coach Mano Menezes.

Daniel Alves scored in the 24th minute with a deflected volley and Pato scored with a shot on a turn in the 64th. Pato has scored in three consecutive exhibitions for Brazil, giving the AC Milan forward four goals in 11 international appearances.

Pato was overlooked for the World Cup roster by former coach Dunga, who was replaced by Menezes following the quarterfinal loss to the Netherlands.

Ukraine, which will co-host the 2012 European Championship with Poland, lost for the first time in four matches under interim coach Yury Kalitvintsev.
