Goal.com's team of editors voted the defender as top performer

Goal.com Editors' Top of the Match Sponsored By Turkish Airlines: Juan (Brazil)

The team of worldwide editors at Goal.com have voted Brazilian defender Juan as the top of the match. His well-timed leap above a rising pack and strong header on target gave the Selecao the lead on 35 minutes. Chile goalkeeper Claudio Bravo stood no chance of stopping the Jabulani.

The Roma defender did not receive this accolade based solely on his goal as he also combined well with Lucio to create a wall in front of Julio Cesar. The duo combined to keep Alexis Sanchez and Humberto Suazo from creating havoc for la Roja.

Goal.com Readers' Top of the Match Sponsored By Turkish Airlines: Robinho (Brazil)

The readers have chosen striker Robinho as their top of the match. The star player capped off a great night for the Selecao, as he scored the third and final goal for the Samba Kings in the 59th minute.

Ramires made a marching run forward, creating an opening for Robinho. All the Santos player had to do was curl it past the outstretched hand of Bravo and into the corner.
