Jonas at the double

Brazil beat Egypt 2-0 in a friendly on Monday night to extend their winning run to five matches.

A double from Jonas did the damage in Doha, giving Mano Menezes' men another victory as they sit out qualifying for the World Cup they are hosting.

The Valencia forward's goals were his first at international level, and were the highlight of a low-key affair played in front of just under 20,000 spectators.

Egypt had started the better of the two sides, with Diego Alves keeping them at bay as early as the sixth minute when he turned an Emad Moteab free-kick behind.

Brazil soon woke up, though, and Hulk's long-range effort nearly opened the scoring, with Ahmed Fathi going close at the other end.

Hulk was Brazil's most dangerous operator, fizzing a drive over the bar in the 26th minute, before Alex Sandro forced Ahmed El-Shenawi into a smart stop.

Brazil's mounting pressure was always going to tell and it did eight minutes before the break.

Bruno Cesar started things when he won the ball in midfield and, after he fed Hulk, the forward crossed for Jonas who did the rest from close range.

Jonas beat El-Shenawi seconds after the restart and thought he had made it two, only for Ahmed Hegazi to get back and clear off the line.

He did not have to wait for too long to double his tally, though, pouncing on a loose ball to net after El-Shanawi had kept out a Bruno Cesar free-kick that had been deflected by Fernandinho.

With a two-goal cushion, Brazil started to cut loose and Hernanes went close after more good work from Fernandinho, while Kleber worked the impressive El-Shanawi with a late header.
