Brazil continued their fine run of form as they dismantled Honduras 5-0 in a friendly at the Sun Life Stadium in Miami as they continue their preparation to host next year’s World Cup.
Luiz Felipe Scolari's men could only break the Honduras defence once in the first-half but after the restart the floodgates opened and Brazil found the back of the net a further four times.
The 2014 World Cup hosts took the lead with 22 minutes on the clock when Bernard lashed home a Paulinho cross.
Neymar could have doubled the lead in the 37th minute but the Barcelona star could not beat Honduras goalkeeper Noel Valladares and the score remained 1-0 going into the half-time break.
The Selecao though did score their second 10 minutes after the restart, with defender Dante getting on the end of a Neymar free-kick and heading home via a deflection, before trickling over the goal line.
Right-back Maicon scored Brazil’s third of the game in the 66th minute when he tapped home a rebound after Tottenham Hotspurs midfielder Paulinho’s close-range effort was initially saved.
Second-half substitute Hulk made an immediate impact and set-up Willian to score Brazil’s fourth in the 70th minute when the striker smartly cut the ball back for the winger to slot past Valladares.
The striker then grabbed a goal himself to wrap up the result for the Selecao, when he produced a well-placed finish past a helpless Valladares in the final 15 minutes of the game after some lovely foot work from both Ramires and Robinho.
Scolari will be happy with his team’s performance especially the fact that they are converting the chances the team creates, and will hope for more of the same when they face Chile, who shocked England at Wembley in their next friendly on Tuesday.
