Fred almost helped put Brazil 3-0 ahead two minutes into the second half but his pass to Firmino was cut out by US goalkeeper Zack Steffen, while Neymar's shot was cleared off the line four minutes later.

Neymar converted a penalty kick after the questionable call by Mexican referee Fernando Guerrero, the fourth official for US loss at Trinidad and Tobago last October that eliminated the Americans in World Cup.

Despite the fuss about his below-par performance at the FIFA World Cup tournament this past summer, Neymar has been named Brazil's permanent captain by coach Tite and the Paris Saint-Germain is looking forward to leading the team. The tricky winger set up Brazil's opener with a sensational turn of pace and he nearly teed up Neymar in the second half - his range of passing on show.

Neymar was back at it again on Friday night, when Brazil claimed a 2-0 victory over the United States of America in an worldwide friendly.

The Brazilian player also revealed that, "I was the target of a lot of criticism, and I didn't feel well, When I'm not feeling well, it's better to keep quiet".

East Rutherford, NJ, USA; Brazil forward Neymar (10) reacts after scoring a goal on a penalty kick against the United States during the first half of an worldwide friendly soccer match at MetLife Stadium. Fabinho played a 1-2 with Firmino and cut into the penalty area.

Steffen kicked out his left foot in the 51st minute to save Neymar's 6-yard shot off a pass from Costa, and Miazga cleared the ball off the line.

However, earlier this week, Neymar insisted that he's making an effort not to be so theatric in the future. Brooks will head back to Wolfsburg and miss Tuesday's game. Dede entered in the 80th, his first appearance in five years.
