Brazil put on a vastly improved performance Thursday to beat the United States 3-0 and move closer to a spot in the Confederations Cup semifinals.

Felipe Melo put Brazil ahead in the seventh minute before Robinho and Maicon scored goals that typified the traditional flair and vigor that had been absent from the South American champion's narrow opening win over Egypt.
