It was Brazil’s 13th win in 19 games since Luiz Felipe Scolari succeeded former coach Mano Menezes and took the Selecao’s goal tally to 20 goals in their last six outings, extending their unbeaten run against Chile to 12 games.
Hulk fired Brazil into a first-half lead in what was undoubtedly Brazil’s toughest test since June’s Confederations Cup final triumph over Spain.
Eduardo Vargas pulled one back for Chile but the Selecao grabbed their sixth win on the bounce after Robinho celebrated his return to the squad by heading a winner with ten minutes remaining in Canada.
It was the AC Milan forwards eight goal against Chile, one which saw him surpass Pele’s record to become Brazil’s all-time leading scorer against La Roja.
“We could have won by more,” said Felipao. “We played well from the first minute until the last.”
It was a fantastic way to sign off for the year. The squad will return for March’s friendly.
