(Football) Brazil rout South Africa 5-0
(03-06 11:46)

Brazil showed their national team is in better shape than the stadiums with a 5-0 thrashing of South Africa as teams prepared for the World Cup in a series of friendly matches.
World Cup stadiums are still under construction in Brazil.
In Johannesburg, the five-time world champions were potent at Soccer City as Barcelona striker Neymar claimed his second career hat trick for the Selecao.
Neymar took his international tally to 30 goals, with Chelsea playmaker Oscar and Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho also getting on the scoresheet.
Neymar teased South Africa defenders throughout.
He scored his first goal before the interval with a low left-footed shot, made it 3-0 with a subtle chip and rounded off his team's win from close range. —AP
