Brazil finally exposed all their arguments on the field and crushed a weak Japan with a 4-1 score. Brazilian newspapers celebrated on Friday the victory and Ronaldo Nazario's achievements, after he scored two of the game's four goals.

The Japanese team open the score with a blast from Keiji Tamada in the first half, but the "verdeamarelha" responded with two goals by Ronaldo, and the other ones netted by Gilberto and Juninho.

The win is especially good for Ronaldo, who was attacked in the press for his poor performance and for being fat.

Ronaldinho Gaucho made a really good game, given important passes for two goals, and is starting to become imnportant in this World Cup.

During the match, Cicinho took over from Cafu, Gilberto for Roberto Carlos, Gilberto Silva for Emerson, Juninho Pernambucano for Ze Roberto and Robinho for Adriano.

"With a renewed pace and rhythm, the team had effective wingers and a midfielder who knew how to handle the ball. Robinho moved in front and Ronaldinho Guacho played better," O Globo published.
