"Anything you can do, we can do better."
That might as well be what Brazil is saying to the United States. After the U.S. scores a good-looking goal, Brazil scores one of their own that is very similar, only prettier and cleaner. After all, they are Brazil. The result is a 3-1 lead for Brazil.
The U.S. scored just before halftime with a quick move down the left that saw them get the ball to the end line and cross for a finish. Their cross took a deflection and didn't come with a lot of space.
Brazil scored not long after halftime down the left, but they did it quicker and in a more stylish manner. The end result was Neymar crossing for a wide-open Marcelo and a two-goal lead for Brazil. Style may not matter, but those two extra goals do.
