International friendly: Bolivia 0 Brazil 4

Created on 07 Apr., 2013 6:45 AM GMT

Brazil have continued their preparations for next year's World Cup with a 4-0 friendly win over Bolivia in Santa Cruz.

The match was held as a benefit for the family of 14-year-old Bolivian fan Kevin Beltran Espada, killed by a flare allegedly launched by Corinthians supporters during their Copa Libertadores match against San Jose in February.

Leandro Damiao opened the scoring in just the third minute, before Santos starlet Neymar scored a quick-fire brace before half-time to put the result beyond doubt.

Substitute Leandro completed the scoring in the 92nd minute to give Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari his first win since returning to the job for a second stint in November.

Scolari led Brazil to their last World Cup win in 2002.

A loss to England at Wembley in his first game in charge had been followed by draws against Italy and Russia.
