Hulk finishes off brilliant Brazil move with great goal

The Rio Report

Brazil demonstrated why they are shaping up to be firm contenders for next summer's World Cup when scoring a quite brilliant goal on Saturday night.

Honduras were the opposition for the 2014 World Cup hosts in Miami and Brazil rattled in five goals to underline their qualities at the Sun Life Stadium.

However, it was the nature of the fifth and final goal that was so impressive.

Chelsea midfielder Ramires picked up a pass from Stamford Bridge team-mate Willian and then slipped in Robinho with a clever backheel.

The former Manchester City forward then produced a backheel of his own to find Hulk, who flicked the ball between his own legs, spun and curled his shot into the far corner.

It was a wonderful moment which proved once again that when it comes to pure style, no one can match Brazil on their day.
