On Monday, the World Cup’s host nation roared with applause and shouts of joy as Cameroon fell before Brazil’s onslaught, in an action-packed 4-1 match.
The Estádio Nacional was filled with anxious fans who feared that Brazil might end up second in its group, but they began to relax once 22-year-old Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior scored two goals before half-time.
Then, Frederico Chaves Guedes knocked one in, while Fernando Luiz Roza sealed the deal with a 4th goal. Despite the rocky ups and downs that Brazil’s not-so-flawless players have faced these past few games, they’ll be taking on the Spain-conquering Chile in the Round of 16 on Saturday.
