Catch all the live score and updates from the Round of 16 match between Brazil and Honduras.
56` GOAL! Brenner scores again! Brazil 3-0 Honduras
Brenner with his second of the night. Wesley charges into the box and he may have been fouled by the onrushing Rivera who sends Wesley cartwheeling on the ground. The ball, however, bounces kindly for Brenner who pokes it into the net. Surely there's no way back for Honduras now.
44` GOAL! Marcos Antonio scores! Brazil 2-0 Honduras
Brazil have probed and prodded Honduras but the Central Americans had not crumbled. However, just before the interval, Paulinho found Marcos Antonio in the box who was played onside by skipper Cristian Moreira. Set free, Antonio slid home the ball and Brazil have doubled their advantage. Honduras did look a bit sprightly after the water break as Luis Palma came close to scoring but its overly defensive approach was going to take the side only so far. At half-time, Brazil has one foot in the last eight.
10` GOAL! Brenner gives Brazil the lead! Brazil 1-0 Honduras
It was only a matter of time before Brazil scored. Alan plays a delightful little one-two with Wesley. The No 10 then passes it to an unmarked Brenner who makes no mistake in tapping the ball in. Brenner may have been offside there though.
LIVE NEWS and UPDATES
Fulltime Brazil 3-0 Honduras
An understandably low-key finish to this game. Once Brazil had scored their third goal, there was little left to battle for. The three-time champions have eased their way into the quarters where they will face Germany on Sunday. As for Honduras, the side finished the World Cup with 14 goals conceded in four matches. Once again, the Central Americans could not compete with a superior opponent and their campaign comes to a tepid end.
Fulltime! Brazil 3-0 Honduras
Brazil are through to the quarter-final of the FIFA U-17 World Cup. It was always an uphill task for Honduras against this highly talented Brazil side but they had their chances only for luck to let them down.
Brazil now travel to Kolkata where they will take on Germany on Sunday in a what promises to be a thrilling match.
84` Brazil 3-0 Honduras
Brazil have opted to keep the ball deep in their own half as their back four exchange 20-25 passes among themselves. They also include Brazao into their passing routine a couple of times. Brazil's reluctance to get farther ahead on the pitch sees the Kochi crowd whistling and egging their favourite team to get on the attack. You don't often see the Kochi crowd being unhappy with Brazil.
69` Brazil 3-0 Honduras
Honduras have clearly been second best all evening but a few chances are coming their way as Brazil let the intensity up. Palma came close for the second time in this match when his curled shot from distance narrowly missed the target; Mejia follows it up with a similar effort which crashes onto the upright. Honduras have scored in every game they have played at this World Cup and they could easily have kept this record today, if not for the misfortune.
65` Brazil 3-0 Honduras
First sign that Amadeu has turned his focus towards the quarterfinal clash against Germany as Helio Junio replaces Alan. The latter had received a booking in the first match against Spain and the Brazil head coach has spoken about the midfielder’s importance to his plans. So Alan will certainly be available for his team’s last eight clash, barring any fitness issues that may arise.
62` Brazil 3-0 Honduras
Honduras coach Valladares made a tactical change at half-time. With the introduction of Kenneth Martinez and Joshua Canales, Luis Palma has moved centrally as the lone forward. Mejia switches flanks to the right while Martinez takes his position on the left. Canales, meanwhile, is part of the central midfield three but he has been given a slightly more advanced role.
Preview: Title favourites Brazil will aim to win big when they face Honduras in their Round of 16 clash of the FIFA U-17 World Cup on Wednesday.
Despite looking a bit rusty in their campaign opener, Brazil have won all three of their games in Group D, qualifying for the second round with the full nine points.
Honduras on the other hand, won only one game in Group E, qualifying as one of the best third-placed teams with three points from as many matches.
They conceded 11 goals while scoring seven and the Honduras defenders will have to toil hard to keep the Brazil forwards at bay.
Brazil have been accorded a grand reception at this venue.
The South America U-17 champions have received excellent support from the local crowd at the Jawaharlal Nehru International Stadium here and Wednesday's match should be no different.
The Brazil players have admitted that the atmosphere has made it seem like they have been playing at their home ground. They will be eager to turn on the Samba magic against Honduras and give their new found fans plenty of reasons to cheer.
