MOST COMMENTED

Brazil was booed by its own fans after drawing 2-2 with Chile at the Mineirao Stadium in Belo Horizonte, one of the newly refurbished stadiums for the 2014 World Cup. The game was Coach Luiz Felipe Scolari’s last before he names his squad for the FIFA Confederations Cup, which will be held at six of Brazil’s World Cup venues in June.

Chile, which was looking for its first win in Brazil in 26 attempts, got off to a fast start, taking an eighth-minute lead through Flamengo defender Marcos Gonzalez. Midway through the first-half, Brazil centeral defenderRever headed home a Neymar corner to make it 1-1. The Seleccao then scored an excellent go-ahead goal in the 54th minute, a flowing move from Ronaldinho and Alexandre Pato that was tapped home by Neymar. However, after Chile striker Eduardo Vargas scored an unstoppable equalizer from outside the box, Brazil supporters started to boo their team, shouting ‘Ole’ when the Chileans exchanged passes.

"Obviously no one likes to be jeered and booed. I don't care about it any more, though. I get booed each game with the national team. It's getting boring," Neymar told Reuters. "We always to give our utmost for the team. All our opponents try do something extra when they meet Brazil. It's up to us do even better. One day you're booed, the next you're praised, soccer's like that," the Santos striker said.
