Brazil signed off from their East Asian tour with a 2-0 victory over Zambia in Beijing.

Chelsea’s Oscar broke the deadlock on the hour mark when his effort from range was deflected beyond goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene.

And the scoring was complete just five minutes later as Neymar’s free-kick was turned home by defender Dede.

Oscar’s club-mate David Luiz played 70 minutes while Liverpool’s Lucas Leiva was withdrawn at half-time. Paulinho, of Spurs, also featured for an hour.

The World Cup hosts enjoyed a 2-0 win against South Korea on Saturday night, Oscar and Neymar on target.
