Beijing National Stadium—Beijing, China

Brazil 2-0 Zambia

Brazil rounded off their mini-tour of East Asia with a 2-0 win over African minnows Zambia.

The Chipolopolo stood firm in the face of their illustrious opponents for long periods, and despite Neymar hitting the bar in the opening few minutes, looked happy to defend the edge of their own box for the entire first half.

Oscar broke the deadlock in the second, firing a long-range shot goalward that looped over Mweene thanks to a sizable deflection, then Dede headed home from a Neymar free kick to seal the victory.
