Brazil Ease Past Australia In Friendly

A Neymar-less Brazil beat Australia 4-0 in an international friendly in Melbourne on Tuesday afternoon.

Brazil got off to an absolute flier when Diego Souza found the back of the net 15 seconds into the clash. The forward was played through by Giuliano, and finished into the far corner of the net, although goalkeeper Mitchell Langerak could perhaps have done better in his attempt to save the shot.

The hosts were unable to cause any real threat to the Brazil goal, although Tim Cahill did come close after 15 minutes when he unleashed a left-foot volley from just inside the box. However, his shot was always rising.

Souza found the back of the net again 29 minutes into the tie, but his neatly-timed finish was ruled out as he was adjudged to be offside.

Brazil seemed to have most of the possession leading up to half-time, and were perhaps deserving of the 1-0 scoreline heading into the break.

Australia began the second half the better of the sides, but found themselves 2-0 down when Paris Saint-Germain defender Thiago Silva headed home from close range to extend the Selecao's lead.

Brazil added their third goal 75 minutes into the friendly, thanks to a neat finish from Taison placed into the bottom corner, which Paulinho did well to set up for his teammate. Souza handed the away side their fourth with a header in injury time. 

Do you think Brazil can win the FIFA World Cup in Russia next year?
