Brazil briefly moved to the top of Group B on Sunday with a 3-0 win over an unlucky Chile.
Dunga’s men won comfortably in the end but the result was hardly a fair reflection of a game they only secured in the dying minutes thanks to Robinho’s brilliance.
The Real Madrid forward scored twice in the last six minutes, the last of which was a superb solo goal. He had already put way a dubious first half penalty after being bundled over in the box.
Robinho was Brazil’s lone star, threatening every time he got the ball. But his teammates failed miserably to produce even a fraction of his creativity, with the midfield unable to find the space or imagination to break down a resolute Chilean side.
After an even first half, Chile came out looking for a winner and rugged centre forward Humberto Suazo had a shot saved off the line after beating four men in the box. Suazo was always dangerous and his link up play with Liverpool reject Mark Gonzalez frequently caused Brazil problems.
However, Chile too often pumped high balls into the box that were meat and drink to giant centre backs Juan and Alex and they paid the price for their profligacy.
