Brazil's World Cup players have gave Zimbabweans a rare chance to celebrate, with fans filling the National Sports Stadium to watch stars like Kaka and Robinho play in a friendly international.

Nearly 60,000 supporters, some wearing bright yellow Brazil shirts, saw the five-time world champion beat Zimbabwe 3-0 on Wednesday.

Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe and prime minister Morgan Tsvangirai were also present and watched on from brown armchairs after shaking hands with Brazil's players before kickoff.

Brazil midfielder Gilberto Silva said Zimbabwe was "a nice country" and that his squad had enjoyed the hospitality.
