After last week’s demolishing of Iraq (6-0), Brazil, which featured Adriano in its starting line-up, convincingly brushed aside Japan this morning in the international friendly played in Wroclaw, Poland. Paulinho, Neymar (2) and Kaká were Brazil’s goal-scorers.
2-0 before the break
It only took Brazil 12 minutes to take the lead thanks to a good strike from Paulinho, who could have doubled Brazil’s lead seconds later. Before the break, Neymar made it 2-0 from the penalty spot after Kaká was brought down in the area.
At the start of the second half, Brazil secured the win thanks to another goal from Neymar, who took advantage of a rebound in the box. Kaká scored the definitive 4-0 for the host country of the next World Cup in the dying minutes of the match.
