Chelsea star Oscar scored for Brazil as they ran out 2-0 winners over Zambia in China.

Next year's World Cup hosts beat the 2012 African Cup of Nations champions thanks to goals from the Blues' Oscar and Cruzeiro's Dede.

The win for the Samba-stars extends their run to 10 wins from 11 internationals, with England the only side to claim a draw in that period of time.

Oscar has also been in scoring form for his club this season, bagging four goals in 10 games for Chelsea thus far. The 22-year-old appears to be in favour with Jose Mourinho this season, getting the nod ahead of Juan Mata on a number of occasions.

There was also a classic 'ouch' moment in the match, when Barcelona starlet Neymar unintentionally blasted the ball into the groin of a Zambian player.

Due to the fact the whistle had already been blown before Neymar kicked the ball, an angry Zambia team surrounded the young Brazilian, but Neymar simply apologised.

Brazil's next fixture is in Miami next month, when they face Honduras - who are expected to qualify for the World Cup tonight.

As for Oscar, he will return to domestic duty with Chelsea at the weekend, when Cardiff make the trip to Stamford Bridge.
