RIO DE JANEIRO, July 31 (Xinhua) -- Host to Ceara in the 13th round of the 2011 Brazilian Championship, Fluminense eased to a 4-0 victory on Sunday.

Fluminense made it 2-0 in the 48th minute when Souza took advantage of a loose ball, tapping the ball into the open goal.

Rafael Sobis then scored his first goal since his arrival last week, angling the ball across the field and into the lower left side of the Ceara goal in the 63rd minute.

Rafael Moura scored Fluminense's fourth and final goal in the 76th minute, heading Souza's free kick home.
