Early this morning, in Toronto (Canada), Brazil and Chile clashed in a friendly match that ended 2-1 in favor of the Brazilians. Neymar and Alexis were in the starting line-ups but both failed to score. The goals were scored by Hulk, after 13 minutes, Vargas, in the 71st minute, and Robinho scored the winner for Scolari’s team in the 79th minute. Alves, meanwhile, didn’t play a single minute.

Although failing to score - he did have a goal disallowed for offside- as usual, Neymar produced some spectacular moments. The Barcelona number 11 showed his class, with fantastic moves, and even tried his luck with shots at goal, especially in the first 45 minutes. Alexis, on the other hand, was well controlled by the Brazilian defence.
