While Neymar’s four goals have dazzled the international scene, two team blowouts are responsible for propelling the country to where it finds itself today. Rather than creeping by with slim victories, Brazil topped three goals in their opening match against Croatia and then exceeded that with four against Cameroon earlier this week.
Despite their scoreless draw with Mexico during the second game, their offensive was able to shoot Brazil to the top of the Group A standings.
Brazil, now 10/3 to win the 2014 World Cup, will prepare for the tournament’s next stage. In the Round of 16, first on the docket will be Chile, who prevailed from Group B in addition to the formidable Netherlands.
