Brazil coach Tite was satisfied with his team's performance as they thrashed El Salvador 5-0 in Washington on Tuesday evening, despite the standard of the opponents, Brazil still put on a good show in the coach's eyes.

Making his first start for Brazil following his debut off the bench against the United States last Thursday, Richarlison made it 2-0 in the 16th minute by curling a shot into the top right corner after Neymar's pass.

Richarlison scored twice on his first senior worldwide start while also winning a penalty that was converted by Neymar, who was booked for simulation in the closing minutes of the first half.

'But it's not up to me, so much that I did not say anything, I went on with my football.

"This is a way to play; keeping ball possession, aggression, movement, these are our characteristics, a way I like [to play]".

Who knows, maybe this is the start of him actually convincing us that he's a £50million-calibre player, whatever that actually means in this day and age. "I hope to do more".

"The team has attacking in their DNA, as well as pressing the opponent, [playing with] constantly high pressure, it manages to work all the time with this rotation".

Richarlison may have only just joined Everton over the summer, but he has revealed that a future move to Real Madrid or Barcelona would be a dream.

Colombian goalkeeper David Ospina made a fine diving save to tip an Exequiel Palacios shot over the bar after six minutes while his Argentine counterpart Franco Armani was the busier of the two in the second half but neither side looked like breaking the deadlock. With his movement, he always has the ball in space.
