Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar was on target as Brazil beat Japan 3-1 in an international friendly on Friday afternoon.
The Selecao enjoyed most of the possession in the opening five minutes of the match, but were unable to trouble Japan goalkeeper Eiji Kawashima.
However, it was not long before Brazil made their mark in the game as Neymar scored from the penalty spot in the 10th minute following a reckless tackle from Maya Yoshida on Fernandinho.
The Paris Saint-Germain superstar calmly slotted the ball into the bottom right-hand corner, sending the opposition shot-stopper the wrong way.
Brazil were awarded another penalty in the 15th minute when Gabriel Jesus was taken down in the box, and this time Neymar missed. Kawashima did well to dive to his right-hand side to deny the former FC Barcelona star.
Two minutes later, however, Brazil got their second goal of the match courtesy of a wonderful striker from Marcelo, whose right-footed effort from outside the box flew into the roof of the opposition's goal.
Japan defender Yoshida came close when he struck the crossbar from a free-kick outside the box in the 30th minute, their first real effort of the match.
Brazil went 3-0 up in the 36th minute through Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus, who found the back of the net after getting on the end of a Danilo cross.
Japan eventually pulled a goal back in the 68th minute after Tomoaki Makino jumped above Monaco defender Jemerson to power the ball home. Despite possession still being heavily in favour of Brazil, Japan looked threatening.
The Asian side thought they had reduced the deficit once more in the 87th minute but the goal was ruled offside, while Brazil could have added a fourth through Alex Sandro in injury time, but his header in the box went just wide.
