Brazil 6-0 Australia: Selecao hit Aussies for six

Luiz Felipe Scolari's men put the Socceroos to the sword with a commanding display on Saturday night

Brazil continued their impressive recent form with a 6-0 thrashing of Australia.

Two goals from Jo and a strike from Neymar put the Selecao 3-0 in front at half-time and second-half efforts from Ramires, Alexandre Pato and Luiz Gustavo added gloss to a resounding victory.

After dominating the opening exchanges, it took Brazil just eight minutes to open the scoring.

Neymar found Bernard at the back post and after his volley hit the woodwork, Jo was on hand to slam home the rebound from close range.

The second arrived in the 33rd minute, when Paulinho seized on a loose pass from Brett Holman. Maicon moved the ball forward quickly to Bernard, who crossed for Jo to net again.

Less than two minutes later, Brazil made it 3-0 and put the result beyond any doubt.

Ramires' slide-rule pass in behind the Australia defence allowed Neymar to ease past Ryan McGowan and the Barcelona forward raced away to slip a cool finish beyond Mark Schwarzer.

Maxwell replaced the injured Marcelo at left-back for the second half and it was the substitute who supplied the cross for Brazil's fourth, as he picked out Ramires to head beyond Schwarzer in the 58th minute.

A beautifully crafted move involving two more substitutes then engineered Brazil's fifth on 73 minutes. Hernanes scooped the ball over Australia's backline, with Neymar cutting the ball back to Pato, who back-heeled the ball into the back of the net.

More punishment arrived with seven minutes to go, when Luiz Gustavo exchanged passes with Neymar before slamming a strike from distance beyond Schwarzer.

In a worrying subtext for the Brazilian government ahead of the World Cup, there were renewed clashes between protesters and police before the match, although not on the scale of the unrest that marked the Confederations Cup in June.
