Goteborg:

Ronaldinho scored two goals and set up another on Saturday to lead Brazil past Chile 4-0 in a friendly.

Kaka and Juan also scored for Brazil at Ullevi Stadium.

"The team passed with flying colours," Brazil coach Dunga said. "We have to analyse each element of our adversary and put together the team according to the opponent."

Ronaldinho gave Brazil the lead in the 16th minute with a penalty after Chile defender Alex von Schwedler brought down Gilberto Silva inside the area.

Von Schwedler was booked by Norwegian referee Espen Berntsen. Ronaldinho converted the penalty, firing a low shot past Chile goalkeeper Claudio Bravo near the right post.

Kaka made it 2-0 in the 31st minute, silencing thousands of singing, flag-waving Chilean fans.

Defender Daniel Alves set up the goal with a brilliant cross from the left corner and Kaka one-timed a shot from about 10 meters (yards) that scaled past Bravo into the left hand corner of the net.

Flying colours

Ronaldinho's second goal came in the 50th minute when he curled a free kick over the Chilean wall from about 25 meters.

Juan scored the last goal nine minutes later when he tapped in the ball from close range. Ronaldinho set up the goal, steering the ball to Juan after a corner from Robinho.

Brazil blanked Chile 5-0 when the teams met the last time in a 2005 World Cup qualifier.

The teams will meet again in Copa America - the South American championship - to be played in Venezuela in June and July.
