Brazil 4-1 Cameroon - World Cup 2014

Posted by Shanelle Weir on June 23, 2014

Neymar scored twice to help put Brazil into the last 16 of the 2014 World Cup as his side swept aside Cameroon on Monday night.

The Barcelona star was at the centre of every move and scored once either side of a Joel Matip strike to ensure the Selecao would continue their World Cup campaign on home soil.

Brazil No 9 Fred nodded home his first World Cup goal in eight years to give Luiz Felipe Scolari's a comfortable finish to the game.

The 2014 version of the Brazil national football team is so full of holes it remains distinctly possible that somebody could yet give them a hiding over the next fortnight. 

Nevertheless, in the shape of their remarkable centre forward Neymar they boast a young footballer who seems determined to make this World Cup his own.

Can one player drive a nation to the ultimate glory all by himself? No, but he can make a heck of a difference and in the capital of his country, Neymar ensured his team ended the group stages on a rapturous high.

Certainly the Barcelona forward has tapped in to the emotion and warmth of this tournament.

On Monday night he got pushed in to the photographers by one Cameroon player and slapped in the face by another. He responded with goals, though, beautiful goals, and after each he was waving his arms at the crowd, imploring them to offer more from the towering stands of the magnificent Estadio Nacional.
