Robinho strikes Brazil's second against Zimbabwe

Goals from Michel Bastos, Robinho and Elano, eased Brazil to victory against a muscular Zimbabwe side in Harare. Brazil enjoyed a good pre World Cup workout on a bumpy pitch against African opposition. But first-choice keeper, Julio César, was taken off after just 19 minutes after a blow to his thorax. Tottenham player, Gomes, came in.

    Missed the game… Is the Cesar injury going to affect the World Cup?

        Even if he weren’t fine, Gomes is a world-class keeper. Brazil is in good shape with either keeper. I’m less sure about Dida, who is erratic these days.

    What is the Brazilian media saying about the game?

      something on the lines of Zimbabwe were not much of a challenge and a better oposition should have been found. also mixed views on brazil’s display. some said it was ok. others were not so happy.
      dunga said they’ll perform better in the WC
