Brazil beat Saudi Arabia 2-0 in friendly

International Friendly Report: Saudi Arabia v Brazil 12 October 2018

Jesus ended his worldwide goal drought as Brazil defeated 10-man Saudi Arabia 2-0 in an global friendly in Riyadh on Friday.

The hosts could not score, however, and Sandro gave the scoreline a more realistic look when he headed home Neymar's corner in the sixth minute of stoppage time.

An entertaining first half, which was full of flamboyancy from both teams, culminated in Neymar setting the Manchester City star up for his 11th senior worldwide goal in the 43rd minute.

Jesus finally broke the deadlock for the Seleção two minutes before the break with a clever finish from close range over Al-Owais following a through ball from Neymar.

Brazil will be the more concerned team ahead of Tuesday's showdown in Jeddah as they failed to spark against the game Saudis, who nearly found themselves a goal up after six minutes, before Casemiro hacked clear.

It would be fair to say Neymar is a somewhat polarising figure but fair play to him for getting the Saudi Arabia fans on his side in his last night's friendly.

Saudi Arabia goalkeeper Al-Owais was red carded five minutes before time after the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) adjudged the shot-stopper of handling outside of the box.

"We were also hampered because when you change the basic structure of the team and start putting in new players, they do not have that understanding, the movement, the organised triangulation of different parts of the team, but the match was worthwhile to be able to make those observations", Tite continued.

Brazil's next game is against Argentina in Jeddah on Tuesday. The Argentines beat Iraq 4-0 on Thursday to extend their unbeaten run since the World Cup to three games.
