Half-time: South Africa 0-2 Brazil

Oscar celebrates his goal with Neymar and Fred

A solid display from Brazil has seen them go in at half-time with a two goal lead.

Goals from Oscar and the ever-impressive Neymar has given the Seleção a comfortable cushion heading into the second-half.

The first goal came after just nine minutes when a defence-splitting through ball from Hulk was delicately lifted over the head and into the back of the net by the lively Oscar.

Brazil’s lead was doubled on 40 minutes when Neymar ran onto a ball that broke from midfield before drilling the ball left-footed through the goalkeeper’s legs.

In between the goals, South Africa were afforded more than their fair share of position as Fernandinho and Paulinho struggled to strike up a meaningful understanding.

Playing in his first match since 2008, however, Rafinha impressed and looked assured at right-back.
