Brazil thump Ghana in pre-World Cup friendly

Ghana suffered a humiliating 3-0 defeat to Brazil as Neymar and Richarlison shined in a blistering first half for Tite’s side in a pre-World Cup friendly on Friday.

Tottenham striker Richarlison combined twice with Neymar, sweeping into the bottom corner from the edge of the area, before meeting a free-kick.

The former Everton forward led the line with Arsenal’s Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli not in the squad.

Paris St-Germain centre-back Marquinhos had given Brazil the lead, nodding home a ninth-minute corner from Raphinha.

There were also starts for Liverpool goalkeeper Allison, Chelsea defender Thiago Silva and Manchester United’s Casemiro, while Liverpool’s Fabinho came off the bench.

Tite’s side face Tunisia on Tuesday as they build up to November and December’s World Cup in Qatar, while Ghana take on Nicaragua.
