My colleagues in Goal notified me that Brazil and Fluminese striker Fred shared my cartoon on his Facebook the last August.

Germany crush Brazil’s dreams

The hopes of a nation were left in tatters on Tuesday evening as Germany crushed Brazil to reach the World Cup final.

Luiz Felipe Scolari’s men were left stunned after Joachim Low’s side picked them apart in the first half, scoring five goals in the space of 18 minutes.

Andre Schurrle netted twice after the break to complete the demolition, and to add insult to injury, Miroslav Klose broke Ronaldo’s record to become the all-time record scorer in the World Cup.

Neymar carries Brazil into last 16

Brazil and Barcelona ace Neymar has lived up to his billing as the poster boy for this summer's World Cup as his double against Cameroon helped the Selecao on their way to top spot in Group A and a place in the last 16.

Luiz Felipe Scolari's men ran out 4-1 winners over the African side, with Neymar twice putting his side ahead in the first half before they romped to victory late on.

Neymar has now scored four of Brazil's seven goals at this summer's showpiece, topping the tournament's scoring charts, and if the home nation are to claim a sixth World Cup title then they are likely to do so on the back of their star player, who has carried the side into a last-16 clash with Chile.

Fred to the lions: Brazil striker hunts World Cup place

Brazil striker Fred has vowed to "kill a lion every day" in order to ensure he plays at the World Cup next summer.

“Of course, the closer the World Cup gets, the more the anxiety rises," Fred told Goal.

"I’m very happy to have been part of this winning group at the Confeds, but I know I have to kill a lion every day and continue to prove that I deserve a spot in the Brazil team for the next 10 months."

Ruthless Brazil sink Spain

Brazil claimed the Confederations Cup on Sunday with an emphatic victory over world and European champions Spain.

Vicente del Bosque's side were fancied by many to win the competition, which served as something of a dress rehearsal for the World Cup in Brazil in 2014.

But the tournament hosts raced out of the blocks and led through a Fred goal after just two minutes.

Neymar added a second just before half time, before Fred completed the scoring shortly after the interval.

Yabba-dabba-doo! Fred sees Brazil through

Brazil made it three wins out of three at the Confederations Cup on Saturday night, seeing off Italy 4-2 to finish top of Group A.

Having already beaten Japan and Mexico, Luiz Felipe Scolari’s men kept their perfect record intact with a victory that should see them avoid Spain in the semi-finals.

Neymar has been the star for the hosts so far and once again got on the scoresheet with a superb free kick after Dante had opening the scoring.

However, it was Fred with a real show of strength who grabbed the headlines, scoring twice in the second half to send the hosts into the last four.

England's Wembley win spoils Ronaldinho's parade

It was set up perfectly for Ronaldinho. In his unofficial 100th game for Brazil (he has made five appearances in games not recognised by Fifa), he was handed a chance from the penalty spot to get his name on the score-sheet at Wembley. A penalty against England? Well that's as good as a goal isn't it?

WRONG! Joe Hart superbly denied the buck-toothed magician with not one, but two, fine stops to prevent the 32-year-old marking his return to the Selecao (he hasn't played for them since November 2011) with a goal.

It got worse too. Luis Felipe Scolari replaced him at half-time and England went on to win the friendly with goals from Wayne Rooney and the evergreen Frank Lampard - perfectly marking the Football Association's first glamour friendly in their 150th anniversary.
