Brazil Leads USA 2-0; Firmino and Neymar Score

Brazil Leads USA 2-0; Firmino and Neymar Score Brazil Leads USA 2-0; Firmino and Neymar Score

Two goals in the first half from Roberto Firmino and Neymar gave Brazil an easy 2-0 victory over the United States in a friendly match in New Jersey on Friday.

"I probably overthought that I had to get too tight to him, and by the time I had settled my feet, he'd already made his mind to go and I didn't reallt have a chance of catching him", Robinson said.

Yedlin said to the referee, 'Did you watch the World Cup?', after Fernando Guerrero awarded Neymar a free-kick in the game. 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.

Friday's fixture was the start of an evolution, not a revolution for Brazil following their shock quarter-final exit at the World Cup, with only Neymar, Alisson, Philippe Coutinho and Thiago Silva remaining from the starting XI that faced Belgium.

Neymar will start in the attack alongside Roberto Firmino and Douglas Costa and the trio will be a handful for the U.S. backline. 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.

East Rutherford, NJ, USA; Brazil forward Neymar (10) reacts after scoring a goal on a penalty kick against the United States during the first half of an worldwide friendly soccer match at MetLife Stadium.

However, earlier this week, Neymar insisted that he's making an effort not to be so theatric in the future. The temporary grass field installed over the artificial turf had some brown patches and was immediately removed to prepare for the New York Giants' opener Sunday against Jacksonville.

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

Selecao coach Tite made a series of changes after the break, handing Arthur, Lucas Paqueta, Richarlison and Everton their first minutes in a Brazil shirt.
