Second Round : Brazil 3-0 Chile

Brazil have shrugged off the challenge of Chile - winning 3-0 to set-up a quarter-final tie against the Netherlands on the 2nd July.

Chile, playing without the suspended trio Marco Estrada, Waldo Ponce and Gary Medel, were always up against it after conceding twice in four minutes shortly after the half-hour mark.

Juan opened the scoring with a header from a corner on 34 minutes, while Luis Fabiano finished off a quality break by slotting into an empty net just 4 minutes later as Brazil took another step towards a World Cup title.

Robinho scored from the edge of the penalty area on the hour mark to complete the scoring as Brazil eased up over the final 30 minutes.
