It's handball, not once by twice'

Brazil's first three shots on target produced three goals - the first two from Luis Fabiano after 25 and 50 minutes and the third from Elano after 62 minutes.

Ivory Coast coach Sven-Goran Eriksson said Fabiano's second goal should not have been allowed.

"The first goal Brazil scored was very good," Ivory Coast coach Sven-Goran Eriksson said after the game.

"It's difficult to cope with Luis Fabiano and even more difficult if he's allowed to use his hands. Of course, it's handball, not once by twice," the Swede said.

Brazil's perfect record in Group G further sapped African hopes in the continent's first World Cup, with only Ghana now seen with any real chance of qualifying for the second round.

Ivory Coast skipper Didier Drogba headed his team's goal after 79 minutes as coach Dunga's men largely outclassed the Africans for their 18th win in their last 20 internationals.
