Richarlison scored twice as Brazil ran riot in a 5-0 friendly win over El Salvador.

The Everton forward was handed his first full debut after coming off the bench against the United States at the weekend and added to Neymar’s early spot-kick, with Philippe Coutinho and Marquinhos also scoring.

Brazil took the lead after just four minutes with Roberto Dominguez bringing down Richarlison and Neymar converting the penalty low to the right of Derby Carrillo.

Richarlison then opened his international account in the 16th minute with an excellent curling effort from the edge of the box.

Coutinho scored from similar range on the half-hour after some excellent passing with Neymar on the left and Brazil went into the break 3-0 up.

Richarlison had his brace five minutes into the second-half, hammering a shot inside the near post after the ball had fallen nicely to him 12 yards out.

Marquinhos then headed home a corner in the 90th minute to complete the rout.
