Neymar shines with brace, Fred finally scores, suber-sub Fernandinho: Best Tweets as Brazil qualify in style

After suffering serious criticim for the paucity of their play in the opening two games, Brazil finally brought their A game to the table tonight, as they beat Cameroon 4-1, to qualify in style.

The Indomitable Lions did make a game of it, though, stunning the Mane Garrincha with a deserved equalizer, but their optimism was short-lived, as Brazil replied through Neymar, and started playing some slick, relaxed football with the nerves at bay.

Neymar shone throughout, and it seems there’s a consensus finally coming around to recognize him as one of the world’s best, as he continues to produce on the greatest stage.

Fred finally got off the mark with a tap-in, and Man City man Fernandinho came off the bench to score – increasing the clamour for him to replace the ineffective Paulinho.
