Goal rates the players on show as the Selecao give the Socceroos a mauling in Brasilia.

    Julio César

    Would have been the most bored man in Brazil this evening as he didn't have a single save to make.

  • David Luiz
    12
    0
    2.50

    David Luiz

    Confidently strutted about the back line and distributed the ball excellently. Was given little to no defensive work to contend with.

  • Maicon
    11
    1
    2.50

    Maicon

    Looked much fitter and faster than last season and was up and down the wing like his old self. Formed a lovely partnership with Bernard when they were both on the pitch.

  • Marcelo
    10
    0
    2.50

    Marcelo

    Typically linked up well with Neymar down that left side but was withdrawn early after appearing to pick up a hamstring injury.

  • Thiago Silva
    11
    0
    3.00

    Thiago Silva

    Wanted every ball so much more than Kennedy and Thompson and didn't allow them a single chance on the ground or aerially.

  • Bernard
    17
    1
    3.50

    Bernard

    Hit the post early on, which lead to Jo's opening goal, and was always dangerously buzzing around down the right side. Was a danger at all times and looks to possess electric pace and skill.

  • Luiz Gustavo
    14
    0
    3.00

    Luiz Gustavo

    Bossed the midfield as he constantly won the ball back in the center and distributed excellently. Topped off his performance with a stunning strike into the top corner.

  • Paulinho
    8
    0
    2.50

    Paulinho

    Displayed the penetrating runs that have been paramount in his performances this season. However, just didn't have as much as an impact in the final third as he would have liked.

  • Ramires
    15
    0
    3.50

    Ramires

    Didn't allow the Australia midfield any time on the ball whatsoever and was always hunting down possession. Grabbed the fourth with a superb header at the back post.

  • Jô
    11
    0
    3.50

    Opened the scoring with an accomplished finish from inside the area and grabbed his second with a predatory finish. Will give Scolari something to think about with his performance tonight.

  • Neymar
    24
    1
    3.50

    Neymar

    Beat McGowan each and every time he got the ball and should have notched more than just the one goal. Was always a massive threat and enjoyed his match displaying his skills and pace down the left.

Substitutions

  • Marcos Rocha
    5
    0
    2.50

    Marcos Rocha

    Slotted nicely into right back but didn't really affect the match after coming on.

  • Maxwell
    6
    0
    3.00

    Maxwell

    Came on just before the break for the injured Marcelo and acquitted himself well. Provided a superb assist for Ramires' header.

  • Hernanes
    8
    0
    3.00

    Hernanes

    Had a hand in Pato's goal as he played the ball through to Neymar with a delightful lofted pass over the defense.

  • Lucas
    7
    0
    2.50

    Lucas

    Showed his pace and trickery down the right at times, but didn't offer too much after coming on.

  • Alexandre Pato
    13
    0
    3.00

    Alexandre Pato

    Looked bright after his introduction and got himself on the score sheet with a brilliantly taken goal at the front post.

  • Mark Schwarzer
    4
    3
    2.00

    Mark Schwarzer

    Conceded six goals but was powerless to stop any of them. Was massively let down by his defense and prevented further goals with a couple of good saves.

  • Lucas Edward Neill
    0
    2
    2.00

    Lucas Edward Neill

    Failed to use his experience and organize the defense in any shape or form. However, did well aerially as he headed out a number of crosses into the box.

  • Ryan McGowan
    1
    2
    1.50

    Ryan McGowan

    Severely struggled with the pace, movement and skill of Neymar and gave the Barcelona man the freedom to pose danger to the goal.

  • Sasa Ognenovski
    1
    2
    1.50

    Sasa Ognenovski

    Posted missing for Jo's first goal as he was rooted to the spot as the Brazilian scored freely. Looked out of his depth dealing with the opposition front line.

  • Brett Holman
    1
    3
    1.50

    Brett Holman

    Some of his passes when Australia was on the ball were criminal as he constantly gave it away, most notably for Brazil's second. Didn't offer anything of value, really.

  • Mark Bresciano
    1
    2
    2.00

    Mark Bresciano

    Went through the motions and probably didn't break a sweat as he trotted around the pitch. However, he did show at least a glimpse of quality when he received possession in the Brazil half.

  • Mile Jedinak
    1
    2
    2.00

    Mile Jedinak

    Put in a couple of decent challenges and was one of the only Australians to put in a decent shift. However, lacked the quality with the ball at his feet to mount any attacks.

  • Matt McKay
    1
    2
    1.50

    Matt McKay

    Was given the run around by Bernard and then eventually Moura at left back and toiled when dealing with their pace. Struggled in the air too as he allowed Ramires in at the back post for the fourth goal.

  • Robbie Kruse
    0
    2
    1.50

    Robbie Kruse

    Barely had a touch of the ball and was completely outclassed by his midfield counterparts. Struggled terribly to keep possession whenever he got the ball.

  • Joshua Blake Kennedy
    1
    2
    2.00

    Joshua Blake Kennedy

    Had a thankless task up top as he couldn't have seen the ball for more than a few seconds. However, still didn't hustle the Brazil defense and failed to apply pressure on them.

  • Thomas Oar
    1
    1
    1.50

    Thomas Oar

    Was totally ineffectual in the final third and barely saw any of the ball. Didn't put in a defensive shift either as he allowed Maicon to get beyond him time and time again.

Substitutions

  • Mark Daniel Milligan
    0
    1
    2.00

    Mark Daniel Milligan

    Actually showed a bit of bite as he chased down the ball.

  • Tomas Rogic
    0
    2
    2.00

    Tomas Rogic

    Was introduced in the second period but failed to make an impact.

  • Archie Thompson
    0
    2
    2.00

    Archie Thompson

    Came on in the second half but was never going to change the game, and didn't offer much.
