Brazil secure place in last 16

Brazil secured their place in the last 16 no matter what happens in Monday's clash between Portugal and North Korea in Cape Town and played well within themselves as they brushed aside the Ivorians.

An otherwise poor first half only came to life when Luis Fabiano lashed the ball high into the roof of the net past goalkeeper Boubacar Barry.

A smart backheel and a fortunate one-two with Kaka led to the goal while Luis Fabiano showed some nice individual skill, and got the benefit of two dubious handballs for his second 25 minutes later.
