Richarlison goals: Attacking is in Brazil's DNA, says manager Tite

Richarlison goals: Attacking is in Brazil's DNA, says manager Tite

But it was Richarlison that made the most of his opportunity, scoring twice in a 5-0 win against El Salvador in Washington.

Brazil ran out with a new-look side, with coach Tite giving debuts to goalkeeper Neto and full-back Eder Militao as well as first starts to Richarlison at centre forward and Arthur in midfield.

He made his worldwide debut against the United States last week and scored twice against El Salvador on Tuesday.

It was a "dream come true" for Richarlison as the Brazil forward marked his starting debut with two goals against El Salvador.

After joining for big money from Watford, Richarlison impressed in his first handful of Everton appearances and worked his way into the Brazilian national team.

Phillipe Coutinho made it 3-0 before the Everton attacker grabbed another after the break, pouncing onto a loose ball to rifle home a low shot from inside the box.

Richarlison earned a second-minute penalty, albeit harshly on El Salvador as Roberto Dominguez appeared to get a foot on the ball, before captain Neymar converted. "I have to work hard at my club to come back more often".

Brazil's next games will be friendlies in Saudi Arabia against the host nation on October 12 and then Argentina four days later.

Both sides had stand-in coaches for the game, with Argentina yet to replace Jorge Sampaoli, and Jose Pekerman having resigned as Colombia boss. 'These lads now know what it is like to wear the Argentina shirt.

Philippe Coutinho and Marquinhos also found the net as Brazil coasted to victory at FedEx Field, following on from a 2-0 triumph over the United States on Friday.
