Text size Aa Aa

New Barcelona signing Neymar scored his third goal in three games at the Confederations Cup to hand Brazil a thrilling 4-2 win over Italy in Salvador on Saturday.

Bayern Munich defender Dante and former Lyon striker Fred were also on target as Brazil top Group A and should now avoid world champions Spain in the semi-final.

This result sees the Azzurris finish second with 6 points, 3 ahead of Mexico after they narrowly defeated Japan 2-1 thanks to a brace of goals from Manchester United forward Javier Hernandez.
