Neymar Shines In Easy Win

Brazil cruised to a comfortable 4-0 friendly win over Panama thanks to a wonderful performance from Neymar at the Estadio Serra Dourada on Tuesday.

Brazil started off with most of the possession and go forward ball and Neymar looking dangerous from the first whistle.

Panama did begin to grow in confidence as the game went on as they frustrated the Brazilians in the opening exchanges.

Neymar did finally break the deadlock in the 27th minute as the Barcelona superstar curled a magnificent free-kick from the edge of the box over and around the wall past a helpless McFarlane in the Panama goal, 1-0 to Brazil.

Neymar’s club compatriot Dani Alves doubled the home side’s advantage with a clever toe-poke from the edge of the box which found the far corner and make it 2-0 with five minute left in the first-half.

Luiz Felipe Scolari’s men made it 3-0 in the first minute of the second-half as Hulk slotted the ball past McFarlane with the outside of his left-foot following a wonderful back-heel into space by Neymar.

The Barca forward was instrumental in Brazil’s fourth goal as he played in Maxwell who squared for Willian to slot home, making it 4-0 with 73 minutes played.

In the day’s other friendlies Switzerland beat Peru 2-0, Austria overcame Czech Republic 2-1 and Japan picked up a 3-1 victory over Costa Rica.
