Brazil vs. Australia: International Friendly Live Score, Highlights, Recap

Brazil 6-0 Australia (Jo 2, Neymar, Ramires, Pato, Luiz Gustavo)

Luiz Felipe Scolari's Brazil side returned to winning ways in Brasilia on Saturday night, putting in an imperious display to hammer a lacklustre Australia.

Inspired by the energy and innovation of Bernard, Brazil were vibrant in their attacking work and quickly took an early lead as Jo turned home a rebound after Bernard had struck the post with a crisp volley.

The same combination would soon link for Jo to add a second, turning a cross home at the near post, before Neymar got in on the act a minute later from a Ramires through ball.

After half-time, Australia's inability to get into the game continued and poor defending cost them once again as Ramires rose high at the back post to head home a Maxwell cross.

Neymar would then collect a chipped Hernanes through ball to set up Pato for a front post finish, before a Luiz Gustavo rocket in the final minutes put the icing on the cake for Brazil ahead of Tuesday's clash with Portugal.
