Zimbabwe 0-3 Brazil: Brazilians Overpower Hard Working Zim

The first half of the encounter did not seem to be a true Brazil match, with few chances falling to either side, although Zimbabwe held their own and worked hard to keep the South Americans at bay.

It was only a matter of time however, and Brazil finally broke the deadlock through Michel Bastos who scored from a freekick in the 42nd minute, before Robinho made it two just before half time when he scored on the counter attack in the 45th minute.

The match in Harare meant a great deal to the hme team and fans, who savoured the opportunity to face such quality opposition, and they provided a stern test with their never say die attitude.

Brazil was using this game to prepare for the World Cup which begins next week, and they rounded up the win with a third goal in the 56th minute courtesy of Elano.

Brazil will be pleased with a comprehensive win against African opposition ahead of the tournament in which they are placed in the 'Group of Death' alongside Portugal, Ivory Coast and North Korea.
