So far things have just about been going to the script for Brazil's match against Egypt in Qatar. The favourites have dominated the match and are 1-0 up at halftime thanks to Valencia striker Jonas's first senior international goal, while Egypt have struggled to get out of their own half but looked reasonably competent whenever they did have the ball, testing Diego Alves with a very nice free kick early on.
Despite the occasional blip, the attack threat has come from Brazil, and it's mostly come from the right hand side, where Hulk and Dani Alves are combining to devastating effect. Hulk's been the best player on the pitch, routinely squirming his way through two or three defenders, and he did most of the work for the goal, breaking through to the touchline and firing in a low cross that Jonas turned home.
Could Brazil be playing better? Sure - they're being very conservative, and the left side could be doing more in the attack. But they don't need to, so hey.
