Brazil did not really blow out SA. Obviously Brazil was the better team but SA held up well up until that second goal. The refs seem to favor Brazil heavily plus the SA's back line didn't help with the situation either.

"The first half was very evenly matched. Saudi Arabia showed that they wanted to win the game and they had chances to score, which was something we spoke about during half-time. We came out much stronger after the break, we were more switched on and we put on another good attacking display."
Ney Franco, Brazil coach
