Brazil 3-0 Ghana: Tottenham forward Richarlison scores twice

Richarlison heads home a Neymar free-kick for Brazil against Ghana
Richarlison has now scored 16 goals in 37 games for Brazil

Tottenham striker Richarlison scored a first-half double as Brazil brushed aside Ghana in a friendly.

The 25-year-old 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, where they face Serbia, Switzerland and Cameroon in their group as they look to win a record-extending sixth title.

Elsewhere, Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah scored twice, including a penalty, as Egypt, who failed to qualify for the World Cup, beat Niger 3-0.
