Brazil stroll over Panama

Afp
Thursday, June 05, 2014

GOIANIA, Brazil - World Cup hosts Brazil strolled to a 4-0 win over Panama in their penultimate warm-up yesterday, goals from Neymar, Daniel Alves, Hulk and Willian securing the stroll.

Brazil barely had to break out of third gear in seeing off limited opponents as Neymar, with his 31st international goal, set the ball rolling, rifling in a free-kick for the opener on the half hour.

Alves drove in the second five minutes before the interval and a cheeky Neymar backheel was enough to pave the way for Hulk to slot in the third early in the second period before Willian put the icing on the cake 17 minutes from time.

With only Friday's friendly against Serbia to come before the Selecao meet Croatia in their World Cup opener on June 12 in Sao Paulo, 2002 title-winning coach Luiz Felipe Scolari seized the chance to use several second string players.
