Luis Fabiano believes Brazil are still evolving as the tournament progresses following his side’s resounding 3-0 defeat of Chile on Monday at Ellis Park in Johannesburg.
“Today the national team really showed an evolution,” the Sevilla striker said. “We managed to play comfortably, touching the ball, creating counter attacks just the way we like.”
The striker netted Brazil’s second goal on 38 minutes, latching onto a perfectly weighted Kaka pass before rounding Chile goalkeeper Claudio Bravo and stroking the ball into the empty net.
It was Fabiano’s third goal of the tournament, following a brace against the Ivory Coast, leaving him just one behind joint top scorers Gonzalo Higuain of Argentina and Slovakia’s Robert Vittek. The strike banished any thoughts that Chile could upset Brazil and cinching up what became an easy win for Carlos Dunga’s side.
“Everyone is celebrating,” Fabiano said. “It’s another step, another difficult match that we have overcome, a very good feeling for someone like me who has never played a World Cup.”
