Neymar, Firmino lead Brazil over USA 2-0 in exhibition

Neymar, Firmino lead Brazil over USA 2-0 in exhibition”

The goal was Neymar's 58th for his country in 91 matches. The Paris St-Germain star caused controversy with his diving during the summer's World Cup in Russian Federation and the Brazilian was involved in another comical incident on Saturday. The tricky winger set up Brazil's opener with a sensational turn of pace and he nearly teed up Neymar in the second half - his range of passing on show.

In the first-half, Neymar threw himself to the ground a little too easily for DeAndre Yedlin's liking.

Neymar was back at it again on Friday night, when Brazil claimed a 2-0 victory over the United States of America in an global friendly.

Brazil put their World Cup disappointment behind them as the Selecao overpowered a youthful U.S. side 2-0.

Brazil maintained its strong tradition with an easy win on Friday, thanks to the goals by forwards Roberto Firmino at the 11th minute and Neymar converting a penalty at the 43rd. The section of American Outlaws behind one goal held up photos of Clint Dempsey before the match in honor of the USA star, who announced his retirement on August 29.

Neymar, who now plays for France's PSG, converted the penalty with a soft shot to the left as Steffen lunged to the right.

"The ability to connect passes was a difficult chore for our group early in the game", Sarachan said, "and when you concede possession against a team like Brazil, it makes it hard".

Notes: Sarachan will run the team for Tuesday's friendly against Mexico in Nashville, Tennessee, and possibly for exhibitions on October 12 against Colombia at Tampa, Florida, and versus Peru four days later at East Hartford, Connecticut.

Brazil (2): Allison; Fabinho, Marquinhos, Thiago Silva (m.80, Dedé), Felipe Luis; Fred (n.60, Arthur), Casemiro, Coutinho (m.71, Lucas Paquetá); Douglas Costa (m.61, Willian), Roberto Firmino (m.75, Richarlison) and Neymar (m.80, Everton).
