FULL TIME: Brazil 3-1 Belarus – Fantastic goals from Brazil, with Neymar inspirational. Not a top-notch performance, but the Seleção will be content.

90′ – GOAL Brazil 3-1 Belarus (Oscar) – That is incredible. Neymar picks up the ball and charges at the defence before a backheeled pass slips through Oscar to fire home.

90′ – Brazil running down the clock again. Lucas is determined to make an impact, though, but not quite coming off.

90′ – Oscar picks out Neymar, who shimmies past one defender. His pass to Lucas is underhit though.

88′ – Free-kick taken by Oscar and the ball is dipping below the bar, but Gutor saves well.

87′ – A lot of fouls from Belarus now. Lucas taken down this time.

86′ – That’s disappointing. Lovely from Neymar to skip past his marker and run into the area, he snatches at his shot though. Pulled well wide.

85′ – SUBSTITUTION – Lucas Moura replaces Alexandre Pato

83′ – Slight worry for Brazil, Neymar still feeling the effects of that crunching tackle at the end of his run a minute ago.

81′ – Almost a massive error from Juan and Marcelo. Neither player takes command and Gordeichuk races clear. Romulo, though, busts a gut to recover.

79′ – That was sublime. Neymar beats defenders for fun, past three or four with an array of tricks. Only a fine last-ditch challenge denies a fine goal.

78′ – Belarus bring on another forward to try and win a goal back.

76′ – Neymar wins a corner after some wonderful play. Pato just beaten to the cross.

74′ – Pato linking up well with Neymar, but just can’t thread the return ball through to the Santos forward.

73′ – Brazil playing keep-ball. They need to be careful not to get stung on the break.

71′ – Hulk looks to slip Neymar in down the right, but his pass is overhit.

69′ – The crowd loved that. Neymar skips infield and finds Oscar who pirouettes between two markers. Outstanding.

68′ – Terrific play from Neymar again to play in Rafael who pulls the ball back to Pato six yards out. The Milan striker can’t control.

66′ – That was simply sublime, as Neymar marks his second Olympic game with his second-goal.

65′ – GOAL Brazil 2-1 Belarus – Stunning curled free-kick from Neymar, right across the goalkeeper.

65′ – Neymar does brilliantly to leave Dragun on the floor with a brilliant change of direction. Terrific skill.

64′ – SUBSTITUTION – Ganso replaces Sandro

63′ – Taken by Hulk, but into the wall. Belarus remarkably stubborn so far.

61′ – Good play from Pato to win a free-kick 30-yards out. Hulk, Oscar, Neymar and Marcelo all want to take it.

60′ – Bressan tries to curl the ball in at the far-post with Neto slightly off his line. The keeper gets back to tip the ball round the post.

59′ – Neymar is tugged back clearly by Dragun, but the Japanede referee plays a fine advantage to allow Oscar a chance. His stinging drive well saved

58′ – Neymar getting hassled even when deep in his own half. Three around him instantly.

55′ – Great defending from Politevich. Marcelo sits the ball up to the back-post where Pato heads back for Oscar, but the Belarussian defender gets in at the last minute.

53′ – Good play from Neymar, dropping his shoulder to cut inside, but cannot curl his shot enough to trouble the goalkeeper.

52′ – Marcelo lucky not to enter the referee’s notebook after catching Bressan late.

51′ – Sandro’s chipped cross finds Pato, who cannot make a proper contact with the ball. The ball comes out to Marcelo whose stinging shot is palmed away by Gutor.

49′ – Classy bit of play from Oscar who beats two men with a terrific change of pace. Left-footed shot, though, is well over.

47′ – Brazil break as Hulk is gifted the ball, but the forward chose to ignore Pato and take on Politevich who slides in and steals possession.

46′ – Neymar takes a pot-shot at goal from near half-way. Not a bad effort, but comfortably wide.

16.02 – SECOND HALF – Belarus…
