Neymar, Gabriel Jesus Power Brazil to Easy Friendly Win vs. Japan

A fantastic first-half display saw Brazil to a comfortable 3-1 win over Japan in Friday's friendly at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy in Lille, France.  Neymar netted the opener after 10 minutes from the penalty spot, and Marcelo doubled Brazil's lead with a stunning strike seven minutes later. Gabriel Jesus made it 3-0 from close range before the break and, although Tomoaki Makino pulled one back for a much-improved Japan after half-time, Tite's side ran out easy winners. Brazilian
