1 goal, 1 assist, 2 defenders embarrassed: Chelsea star produces awe-inspiring performance


Chelsea midfielder Willian was in great form as Brazil stormed to a 4-0 win over Turkey.

Chelsea attacking midfielder Willian impressed as a strong Brazil side put Turkey to the sword in a comfortable 4-0 win.  

Two goals from Neymar, one from Willian and an own goal was enough to ensure that Brazil forgot their World Cup nightmare, allowing returning head coach Dunga to focus on building a strong squad for future competitions. 

Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho assisted the Barcelona forward for his first of his double just 20 minutes into the match. Four minutes later, Turkey were their own worst enemy as central defender Semih Kaya netted an unfortunate own goal. 

Willian made it 3-0 to the away side just minutes before half-time, sending the 2014 World Cup hosts into the break with a comfortable lead. 

In the second-half, the Chelsea attacking midfielder was at it again, this time with an assist to help Neymar complete his brace. 

However, arguably the most impressive, awe-inspiring moment of the match for the Chelsea midfielder was when he used an old trick of Ronaldinho's to slip in between two Turkish defenders who could do nothing but watch him drive on into their box. 

The Brazilian, who has played just 495 minutes for Chelsea this season, has been in indifferent form in the Premier League so far this season, with his only goal and assist in the English top flight coming in the same match in a 3-0 win over Aston Villa in late September. 

The performance against Turkey does give reason for Chelsea fans to remain optimistic over the 26-year-old stepping up his performances this season, and show the impact they know he can make. 

Willian will get the chance to impress new head coach Dunga further on Tuesday when Brazil go head-to-head with a strong Austrian side away from home.
