Table of Contents
Brazil strolled into the quarter-finals of the World Cup after an emphatic 3-0 win over South American rivals Chile in front of nearly 55,000 fans at Ellis Park.

The five-time world champions went ahead in the 34th minute as Juan rose to meet Maicon's corner to smash a bullet-header into the top corner and past the outstretched arms of Chile goalkeeper Claudio Bravo.

It was 2-0 just three minutes later when Kaká's brilliant first-time pass split the Chile defence and left Luís Fabiano able to skip past Bravo and finish.

The result was secured just before the hour mark as Ramires picked up the ball in midfield, ran past everyone in front of him and set up Robinho who curled home from 18 yards.
