Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar went on to register two assists, both for tottenham striker Richarlison who got the nod over Real Madrid’s Rodrygo goes.

Atletico Madrid’s Matheus Cunha and Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino in the number nine role, according to Marca reports.

The first goal from the combative forward was a curled shot from the edge of the box into the bottom corner of the net just before the half-hour mark.

Only 12 minutes later, he added a third, as Neymar put a free-kick into the box with Richarlison getting the final touch to deflect the ball beyond Ghana’s goalkeeper, Joseph Wollacott.

Below are the highlights of the match between Brazil and Ghana:

Some Notable debutants 

Both teams gave debuts to players, with Athletic Club forward Inaki Williams making his first appearance for Ghana and immediately creating chances as he outpaced fellow debutant Gleison Bremer, leading to Jordan Ayew rocking the crossbar.

That was Ghana’s only real chance of note as Brazil continued their onslaught, with Cunha having an effort cleared off the line and Neymar also going close to scoring himself.

The game was ideal preparation ahead of the World Cup for Brazil, who face another African side, Cameroon, in their final group game on December 2.

Ghana will also be hoping that this game may help them to prepare for their campaign in Qatar, which kicks off with a match against Portugal on November 24.
