Brazil secures their first win since lifting the Copa America in July.

It might have only been a friendly against South Korea, but a win is a win for Brazil and its manager Tite.

Since winning the Copa America this summer, Brazil has failed to win a game.

Three draws and two defeats since they beat Peru 3-1 in the final at the Maracana.

The game took place in Abu Dhabi.

It was an opportunity for Tite to relieve some of the pressure he has been under after so many under-par performances.

The Brazillian public doesn’t care for excuses and injuries, they want results.

There were only 10 minutes on the clock when Lucas Paquet’s got his head on the end of Renan Lodi’s cross.

Before the half time interval, at the Mohammed Bin Zayed Stadium Bayern Munich’s Philippe Coutinho doubled the lead.

He scored with a scintillating free-kick, from about 25 yards out in the 36th minute.

Danilo made three on the hour, with an absolute thunderbolt of a shot, from the edge of the penalty area.

3-0 Brazil win.
