Nilmar scores three against Chile

Nilmar scores three against Chile

Even without the suspended Luis Fabiano, Brazil still managed to find the net four times against a spirited Chile in Salvador on Wednesday night.

All eyes had been on Flamengo man, Adriano, but it was Villarreal’s recent acquisition, Nilmar, who put away three of Brazil’s goals.

The score was even more impressive considering that Dunga’s team played almost the entire second-half with ten men after Felipe Melo was righty sent off for a stupid challenge on Sanchez.

Júlio Baptista scored the other for Brazil. Suazo scored twice for Chile including one beautifully taken effort.

Brazil are on 33 points but have already qualified for South Africa next year. The Brazilians finish their campaign away to Bolivia 10th October and home to Venezuela four days later. Chile need three points from their remaining two matches away to Colombia and at home to Ecuador.

    Two great results, Nilmar was outstanding we don’t need to look at the past for players when we’re playing this way. Dunga just drop andre santos and elano.

    6th World cup?? roll on June!
