Brazil beats Denmark 3-1
in friendly

Hulk scored two goals in the first half to help Brazil beat Denmark 3-1 on Saturday at the start of a four-match tour ahead of the London Olympics.

Hulk scored in the eighth and 40th minutes, either side of an own goal by Niki Zimling, as a young but polished Brazil side brushed off a team headed to next month's European Championship in Poland and Ukraine.

Nicklas Bendtner salvaged some pride for Denmark in the 71st minute.

Brazil is warming up for the Olympics, the only significant tournament it has never won.
