Neymar's scored two first-half goals against Cameroon who fell to their third defeat in three group games.

Joel Matip's first-time finish put the African side level, before Fred and substitute Fernandinho increased Brazil's lead.

It had more than a suspicion of offside when David Luiz curled over a cross to set up Brazil's third goal but the officials did not spot it and Fred didn't miss with the header.

Afterwards, Neymar played down the pressure on his shoulders saying: "There is no pressure. I've always said there is no pressure when you are making a dream come true and doing something you have sought after since you were a kid.

"I'm now playing in matches that I always dreamed about.

"I just want to help my fellow players not only by scoring goals but doing whatever it takes on the pitch to help us win.

"We are on the right track and the whole team is getting better and getting close to our target."
