In Istanbul, Brazil defeated Turkey 4-0 yesterday as coach Dunga celebrated a fifth successive win since taking the hotseat following his country’s traumatic World Cup.
The match, played out in front of a packed Sukru Saracoglu, also saw Turkey suffer a sixth match without a victory.
Neymar opened the scoring after 19 minutes when he picked up a cross from Fernandinho before dribbling the ball into the area and stabbing it past a static Suleyman Demirel in the Turkish goal.
Five minutes later it was 2-0 when defender Suat Kaya put through his own goal under pressure from Luiz Adriano who was trying to reach a cross from Danilo.
Willian steered in the third just before the interval after a Neymar cross was not cleared with the Barcelona star adding his second on the hour mark after a neat one-two with Willian.
“I think I’m in the best form of my career though I can’t be satisfied. I shall keep on working hard to get even better, to keep on helping Barcelona and the Brazilian national side,” Neymar told Globo TV.
