FULL TIME IN FORTALEZA

It's been another comprehensive and rather straight-forward victory for Brazil with Neymar at the core of everything positive for the hosts. Even though Mexico came back into the game late in each half, Brazil were never really put under any great pressure and Jo's late goal gave the scoreline the more comprehensive edge it deserved.
