Australia tops PHL
in brawl-marred game

It’s a powder keg of a game from the very start.

Last night’s game was an emotional and physical one that did escalate into a full-blown fracas with no less than 13 players tossed out of the game, followed by the ejection of two more players on fouls before the refs eventually called it a game.

Australia came out the winner over Gilas Pilipinas, 89-53, in the fight-shortened match and thus emerged the top finisher in Group B in the initial round of the FIBA World Cup qualifiers.

Neymar steers Brazil past Mexico

Neymar scored a stylish opener and set up substitute Roberto Firmino for a late second as Brazil cruised into the quarter-finals of the World Cup with a 2-0 win over Mexico last night.

Bidding for a record-extending sixth title in Russia, Brazil weathered an early storm at Samara Arena before Neymar turned on the style to underline their status as favorites.

Brazil will now meet the winners between Belgium and Japan, but after seeing Argentina, Spain and Portugal eliminated in the last 16, Tite's men will fancy their chances.
