Neymar powers Brazil past Japan

Published Add your comment

Neymar scored twice as Brazil posted an impressive victory against Japan to ensure Mano Meneze's side ended their brief European tour with two wins from two encounters.

Following on from the 6-0 thrashing of Iraq in Sweden last week, Neymar inspired Brazil to yet another triumph on Tuesday, while Real Madrid star Kaka also got his name on the scoresheet.

Japan undoubtedly posed a greater threat than Brazil's previous opponents, particularly given their impressive win over France, but Selecao clinically dispatched of their opponents.

Paulinho gave the Brazilians the lead in the 12th minute with a strike from outside the area before Neymar, who also scored against Iraq, doubled the advantage from the penalty spot.

Neymar was fortunate to record his second goal of the afternoon after the ball deflected in off Atsuto Uchida, but the 20-year-old Santos star was credited with his 16th strike in 25 Brazil appearances.

Kaka, who had not scored for Brazil since 2010, added his second goal in five days to complete the scoring with 14 minutes left, but Neymar took the headlines once again.
