The Selecao added their fourth during injury time when Souza broke free to head home a corner and notch his second of the game, much to the disappointment of stopper Langerak, who had enjoyed an impressive showing despite the final scoreline.

Brazil scored after 12 seconds away to Australia before completing a 4-0 rout in a friendly on Tuesday to hand the hosts a wake-up call before they leave for their opening game against world champions Germany at the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation.

The Brazilians swooped quickly in front of nearly 49,000 fans at the Melbourne Cricket Ground when Australia defender Bailey Wright gave the ball away to Giuliano, who provided the space for Souza to fire a right-foot shot in off the hands of goalkeeper Mitch Langerak.

Last week's 3-2 home win over Saudi Arabia put Australia back in the driving seat to reach the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation, where Cahill has his heart set on making a fourth appearance at the global tournament for the Asian champions.

The five-time world champions have already sealed their berth in 2018 world event.

Postecoglou will wake up to some stinging headlines but he was philosophical in defeat, and said responsibility for the second half blow-out lay with him making a raft of changes.

After losing 0-1 against Argentina, Brazilian coach Tite chose to change 8 starters for Brazil's Tuesday game against Australia.

"My end goal is to get to Russian Federation, but when 23 players are selected it starts from 20 to 60 players who have been a part of this long campaign for two and a half years with the boss", Cahill told reporters.

"From our perspective it's about preparing for that game in about a week's time".

"We did need to get some game-time in the players, that was important tonight".

But they were in a determined mood against Australia who must go back to the drawing board before leaving for Russian Federation. "I was happy because the players were supporting each other", Tite said.

Australia will open their first Confederations Cup campaign for 12 years with an outing against Germany on Monday in Sochi, before group matches against Cameroon (22 June) in Saint Petersburg and Chile (25 June) in Moscow.
