World Cup: Brazil vs. Chile; Brazil wins, 3-0

Five-time champion Brazil beat South American rival Chile, 3-0, Monday to advance to the quarterfinals of the World Cup.

Juan opened the scoring in the 34th minute at Ellis Park Stadium with a firm header from near the penalty spot off a corner kick. Luis Fabiano added to the lead in the 38th, receiving a one-touch pass from Kaka and dribbling past goalkeeper Claudio Bravo inside the area before hitting the open net.

Robinho scored his first goal in the tournament with a shot from the top of the area in the 59th minute, a one-timer into the far corner.

Brazil will face the Netherlands, which earlier Monday defeated Slovakia, 2-1, in Durban.

Chile is the first South American team eliminated. Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay are in the final eight, and Paraguay plays Japan on Tuesday.
