It is hard to imagine how, just a year ago, Brazil fans were extremely pessimistic about their team's chances at World Cup 2014.
A series of poor results saw Mano Menezes dropped for the safe hands of Luis Felipe Scolari and everything has changed since.
The Neymar inspired thrashing of Spain in the Confederations Cup final last year was a huge morale booster and this confidence could be seen in the thrashing of Honduras in a friendly on Sunday.
Brazil ran out 5-0 winners and the pick of the goals was the final one, scored by Hulk. Some sensational build up saw two back-heels in a row get the ball to the Zenit St Petersburg striker, who turned brilliantly before burying it in the far bottom corner.
