Brazil cruise into quarters with 3-0 win vs Chile

sports Updated: Jun 29, 2010 02:31 IST

Brazil cruised into the quarterfinals of the World Cup on Monday with a convincing 3-0 victory over Chile at Ellis Park.

The five-times world champions struggled to break down the Chile defence for a little over half an hour but once central defender Juan headed in a corner in the 34th minute the die was cast.

Four minutes later striker Luis Fabiano sprung the offside trap to score a second and Robinho added a third with a great strike in the 59th minute.

Brazil will play Netherlands, 2-1 winners over Slovakia earlier in Durban, in the quarterfinals on Friday in Port Elizabeth.
