Richarlison scores twice in Brazil win

Richarlison scored either side of halftime as Brazil romped to a 5-0 victory over El Salvador in their international friendly on Tuesday (Sep 11).

Richarlison scored twice on his first start for Brazil as they beat El Salvador 5-0 at FedEx Field in Maryland. The 21-year-old won a penalty in the second minute, which was scored by Neymar for his 59th Brazil goal.

Richarlison doubled the lead with a curling strike, before Philippe Coutinho added a third. Richarlison swept home his second in the 50th minute, with Marquinhos heading home a fifth late on.

Victory was Brazil's second in succession as they rebuild after exiting the World Cup at the quarter-final stage with defeat by Belgium.

Richarlison, who made his debut as a second-half substitute in Saturday's 2-0 win over the USA, has scored three Premier League goals this season after moving to Everton in the summer in a £50m deal.

Elsewhere, Argentina - who were without Lionel Messi - drew 0-0 with Colombia in New Jersey. Both sides had stand-in coaches for the game, with Argentina yet to replace Jorge Sampaoli, and Jose Pekerman having resigned as Colombia boss.

A second-half goal from 19-year old midfielder Tyler Adam gave the USA a 1-0 win against 10-man Mexico in Nashville. Four minutes before Adam's winner - his first international goal - Angel Zaldivar was shown a red card for a two-footed challenge on US captain Wil Trapp.

In other friendlies on Tuesday night, Ecuador beat Guatemala 2-0 in Chicago, and Venezuela overcame Panama 2-0 in Panama City.
