Chelsea playmaker Oscar declared himself happy with Brazil's return to winning ways against Cameroon but warned of the dangers lying ahead in the last 16 of the World Cup, where Selecao will face continental neighbours Chile on Saturday.

The tournament hosts erased the disappointment of drawing with Mexico in Fortaleza last week by brushing aside their African opponents in Brasilia thanks to goals from Fred, Fernandinho and a double from competition top scorer Neymar.

And Oscar told SporTV after the game: "Itv was good, especially for the team. We were trying to create pressure in the other games, but it was not working."

"Today we did this, we pressed forward and stole important balls. And we got it at the right time."

On the prospect of playing Chile in the next stage of the championships, Oscar added: "At the World Cup, everyone has to face and beat everyone. They're a big, strong opponent, but we'll be prepared."

The game takes place in Belo Horizonte on Saturday afternoon at 1700 GMT.
