    Time:90'
    • Brazil
    • Chile
    • 90'+ And that is that. Brazil entertain as usual, while Robinho stakes his claim for a World Cup place. Chile, meanwhile, can take positives out of the game, having given the Selecao a run for their money.
    • 90'+3 Ooh! Robinho goes close to a second with some sublime skill, but his effort is dragged wide of the upright!
    • 90'+3 Neymar is brought off, purely to get the undiluted acclaim of the crowd. Lucas Leiva comes on to replace him.
    • 90'+2 Bravo hares off his line again and he's caught in no-man's land with the ball at Hernanes's feet. But the Lazio man can't capitalise and his shot on goal in blocked!
    • 89' The offside flag is up as Munoz stabs a sliding effort wide of the far post.
    • 87' Munoz replaces Gutierrez for Chile.
    • 86' A Mexican wave goes round the Rogers Centre as we enter the final five minutes of the match.
    • 85' Now it's Chile's turn to break. But David Luiz shows all his class with a superb piece of defending to snuff out the danger.
    • 84' Hernanes comes on for Paulinho.
    • 83' Oh! Neymar should score here as Brazil break quickly but he gets his feet tied up and he can't convert!
    • 80' Neymar breaks forward once more now, but this time his attempted pass to Robinho doesn't reach its intended target.
    • 79' GOAL! There it is! Robinho gives Brazil the lead again! The Milan man converts a simple header from close range after Maicon's cross finds him all alone in the middle. Who started the move? Neymar.
    • 77' Neymar again teases his defender, this time it's Medel, before sending across a dangerous ball that unfortunately for him no one can reach.
    • 76' This is anyone's game now. It should be an exciting finale.
    • 75' Bravo suffers a moment of madness and Neymar nearly makes him pay as this match really takes off!
    • 74' Amidst all this action, Thiago Silva is taken off and Dante comes on.
    • 73' Brazil hit back straight away! No! Neymar's effort is ruled out for offside. The Barca man's tap in won't count!
    • 72' It seemed like Vargas used Luiz as a screen to unsight Cesar then. If that was indeed his plan, it worked a treat.
    • 70' GOAL! Vargas levels things up for Chile, against the run of play! It's a superb individual effort, firing past David Luiz from 25 yards and leaving Julio Cesar rooted to the spot!
    • 69' Alexis Sanchez, who's been very quiet this second half, is pulled up for a push on Maxwell in the Brazil box.
    • 68' Beausejour is booked for a tug on Ramires' shirt. He becomes the fourth player tonight to see yellow.
    • 67' Here goes Neymar again, teasing the Chile defence until he lets off a shot on goal which is deflected behind for a corner.
    • 66' Robinho goes into the book, much to his displeasure. He claims he tried to get out of the way of that challenge, and he may have a point.
    • 64' Here comes Ramires, and Willian, on for Oscar and Hulk.
    • 63' Fernandez tries his luck with a speculative shot that sails way over Julio Cesar's bar.
    • 62' It looks like another Chelsea man is about to enter the fray: Ramires.
    • 60' Another substitution for Chile now as Fernandez comes on to replace Valdivia, who had himself come off the bench in the first half.
    • 57' And now Paulinho sees a shot saved by Bravo before Oscar makes a hash of the follow-up! Brazil in the ascendency here!
    • 56' From the resulting corner, Hulk unleashes a fierce drive that forces Bravo into action!
    • 55' Another chance for Brazil! Neymar plays a beautiful pass through for Robinho, but the Milan man can't convert! Corner nevertheless.
    • 52' Jo, who was down during that attack, is finally forced off for good. Another former Manchester City player Robinho, only recently back in the national fold, comes on to replace him.
    • 51' Real chance for Brazil! Neymar leads the counter but as the ball comes across the face of the Chilean goal, somehow Gonzalez manages to scoop the ball up and over his bar! That goes someway to atoning for his first-half error.
    • 50' Vargas plays a one-two with Valdivia and lines up a curler with his right foot. He can't quite get it to bend back on target though and his effort bounces wide of the mark.
    • 49' Good news for Chelsea fans - David Luiz is back on.
    • 48' No changes to tell you of at the break. Although that situation is likely to change before too long.
    • 47' David Luiz takes a sore one on his ankle. The Chelsea man heads off for a spray, while play continues on the pitch.
    • 46' Here we go again. Back under way at the Rogers Center.
    • 45'+3 There goes the half-time whistle. Brazil go in a goal to the good, thanks to Hulk's lethal finish on 14 minutes.
    • 44' Jo hobbles off with a knock and Brazil will see out the rest of the half with 10 men.
    • 42' Here come Brazil again, with Neymar who tries to get around his man to get in a position to cross the ball in. But he doesn't succeed in his mission this time and Chile come away with the ball.
    • 40' Julio Cesar fluffs his lines on a kick from a back pass. That's not going to inspire confidence in his defenders.
    • 38' Paulinho goes into the book for an earlier indiscretion. Good refereeing that - he let play go on while Chile were in possession.
    • 36' A second corner is won straight away before Luiz is pulled up for climbing on the back of a Chilean defender.
    • 35' Neymar brings roars of delight from the crowd as he first brings down a lovely ball from Hulk before displaying some mesmerising trickery to win a corner.
    • 33' Now it's Carmona's turn to writhe around on the floor, this time after an aerial clash with Jo. The Chilean defender landed rather awkwardly.
    • 32' David Luiz now goes in hard on Valdivia, but the Chelsea stopper escapes a yellow card, seemingly thanks to his protestations of innocence.
    • 31' Oh, that's a poor challenge by Medel on Oscar, who totally did him for pace. The Cardiff hardman looks unperturbed as the ref brandishes a yellow card.
    • 30' Chile win a third corner in quick succession. This time Beausejour takes it from the other side, but even though he clears the first post, it still doesn't trouble the Brazil defence.
    • 29' Gutierrez again takes it, but again it's poor. Two decent chances to get the ball into the box wasted by the FC Twente man.
    • 28' Chile come again though and Vargas wins another corner soon enough.
    • 27' Gutierrez takes it, but it's a poor one and doesn't even clear the first post.
    • 26' Chile now look to play their way into the Brazil box. Sanchez is instrumental as they win a corner.
    • 24' Here goes Neymar, instigating another Brazilian attack. Nothing comes of it this time, but the Barcelona man is up for it tonight.
    • 23' Chile coach Jorge Sampaoli isn't afraid of switching things up. Let's see if his changes made any difference.
    • 22' Another change now for Chile - Valdivia on for Fuenzalida. No injury there, that's a tactical change.
    • 20' Oh, great chance goes begging for Chile! A clever free-kick fools Brazil and finds Medel around the penalty spot, but the Cardiff man swings hit boot at the ball and doesn't really connect.
    • 18' Chile have been a bit rocked by that goal and Brazil are now beginning to flex their muscles.
    • 17' Jo fires another poor Chilean clearance into the ground and watches as the ball bounces over the bar. It must have taken a deflection as the ref signals a corner.
    • 16' Hulk gets hold of the ball again on the left before he plays a beautiful ball across the face of the Chilean goal. Neymar is inches away from converting it!
    • 15' Gonzalez was under a bit of pressure there, but really it was a terrible pass. And he was duly punished.
    • 14' GOAL! Hulk blasts home after an awful ball out of defence by Marcos Gonzalez goes straight to Oscar. The Chelsea man plays it to Hulk, who makes no mistake with a fierce low drive past keeper Bravo.
    • 11' And now Sanchez is hauled to the ground by David Luiz. All a bit scrappy at the moment and we're hearing a bit too much of the referee's whistle.
    • 10' Vargas wins a free-kick after a clumsy challenge by Luiz Gustavo.
    • 9' Brazil come again but the Chilean defence hold firm.
    • 8' Marcelo Diaz is going to have to come off here. He's replaced by Wigan's Jean Beausejour. That's a blow for the Chileans.
    • 6' Six minutes gone and still goalless in Canada.
    • 5' Excitement levels in the Rogers Center reach a high for the night so far as Neymar lets off a shot. It flies wide of the mark and the noise levels return to normal.
    • 4' Brazil are in their traditional colours - yellow shirt, blue shorts and white socks - while Chile too are sporting their usual kit - red shirt, white shorts and blue socks.
    • 3' So, both teams have sent out strong sides tonight. Brazil in particular could well be boasting their strongest side.
    • 2' Already, Chile danger man Alexis Sanchez seems to have a problem. He's limping. We'll keep an eye on that one.
    • 1' Here we go then! Under way in Toronto!
    • - Chile: Bravo, Jara, Gonzalez, Medel, Carmona, Diaz, Fuenzalida, Mena, Gutiérrez, Sanchez, Vargas
    • - Brazil: Cesar, Maicon, Thiago Silva, David Luiz, Maxwell, Paulinho, Luiz Gustavo, Oscar, Neymar, Hulk, Jo.
    • - Chile are unbeaten in 10 matches and this encounter should be a lively one. Kick-off is coming right up.
    • - That result proved Chile are no slouches and that was reaffirmed in their 2-0 win over England at Wembley last Friday.
    • - This will be the second meeting between these two sides in just seven months, following a 2-2 draw last time out in April.
    • - Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the international friendly between World Cup hosts Brazil and Chile in Toronto.
