Brazil wins group A with a 4-1 victory over Cameroon and will go to the round of 16. The win comes after a couple of thrilling goals from Neymar, who seems to be one of the few consistent goal-scorers in the 2014 World Cup tournament. In comparison, Argentina’s Lionel Messi and Portugal’s Christiano Ronaldo have not capitalized on their ability to score goals.
Neymar boosted Brazil with 2 two goals in similar fashion to his opener in the opening game between Brazil and Croatia. The 22-year old has proven himself that the future of Brazil’s international play rests partly on his shoulders.
The game against Cameroon saw more scoring opportunities after an uneventful draw with Mexico, an unpredictable team that have key players to push forward in their offensive. When Cameroon tyed Brazil’s goal in the 26th mn, the end result seemed a bit different. But Brazil thrives under pressure and Neymar seems to do well when things go wrong as well.
The next goal came from Neymar, and he was able to take some ‘sweat off’ his mates after Fred made it easier with his goal adding some buffering to Cameroon’s offensive tactics. Finally, Fernandhinho brought on the final clincher that sealed the match. There was nothing left to add from the Cameroon side.
Brazil moves on to face Chile, runners up in Group B, in the second round on Saturday featuring an exclusive S. American match.
