VIDEO: Ropey Brazil thrown lifeline by glorious Neymar double

The Brazilian striker was on a solo mission to get his team to the last 16.

Updated 23:00

BRAZIL BEAT CAMEROON 4-1 in their Group A match at the Estadio Nacional in Brasilia and it was thanks, in the main, to Neymar.

The World Cup hosts hit the front after 16 minutes when Neymar side-footed home an in-swinging cross from the left wing.

Cameroon hit back with a Joel Matip goal and saw another chance crash off the Brazilian bar before Brazil, through the talismanic Neymar, hit the front again.

Fred headed in his first goal of the tournament after 53 minutes and a crisp Fernandinho finish made it 4-1 in the closing stages.
