MOST COMMENTED

Brazil put in the most dominating performance of the Women's World Cup when it crushed host China, 4-0, Friday in Wuhan.

The reigning FIFA Player of the Year Marta scored two goals -- her third and fourth of the competition -- and set up teammate Cristiane for two more.

China has its chances in the first half, but Brazil put the game away with a Cristiane goal three minutes before the end of the first half and two Marta goals in the first three minutes of the second half.

Brazil leads Group D with six points after two games and needs to only tie Denmark Wednesday in Hangzhou to win the group.

No team clinched a berth in the final eight after two games. Only Argentina and Ghana have no chance going into their third game.

Here's how the groups stand:
