Neymar comes off bench to net brace in Brazil's win over U.S.

Foxborough: Barcelona superstar Neymar scored twice as Brazil thrashed the United States 4-1 to equal the Americans' heaviest margin of defeat under manager Jurgen Klinsmann in a friendly international on Tuesday.

Dunga brought Neymar on at half-time and the Barcelona superstar, who will be suspended for the Selecao's clash with Chile next month, made an instant
impact.

David Luiz released Neymar into acres of space down the right and the number 10 cut back inside only to have Stoke City defender Geoff Cameron sweep his legs from beneath him for a cast-iron penalty.

Neymar duly stepped up to rifle home the spot-kick — his 45th international goal — to make it 2-0.

Veteran striker Hulk and youngster Rafinha scored the five-time world champion's other goals.

Substitute Danny Williams scored a late consolation for the Americans, lashing home a 30-yard screamer in the 90th minute.
