BRAZILIAN FOOTBALLERS HAD some making up to do with their home fans last night as they took to the pitch to face China in Recife.

Stars such as Oscar and Hulk, who had featured in the country’s Gold-Medal Final defeat at London 2012, were on the scoresheet as Brazil trounced the visiting Chinese team 8-0.

Hulk, who has recently signed a lucrative deal with Zenit St Petersburg, scored a rebound while Neymar bagged himself a hat-trick of tap-ins.

There were also goals for Oscar and his Chelsea teammate Ramires, while Lucas Moura opened the six-goal scoring in a bleak second-half for the visitors.

Mano Menzes’ side also hit the woodwork on three occasions while a Liu Jianye own goal compounded the misery for his team.

After the match, the entire Brazilian squad gathered around the centre circle to applaud their supporters.

China, on the other hand, have a lot to work on if they are to make it back to Brazil for the World Cup in two year’s time.
