Neymar’s spectacular third-minute goal set hosts Brazil on their way to a comfortable victory over Japan in the opening game of the Confederations Cup.
The Barcelona striker met Fred’s knockdown on the edge of the area with a blistering shot into the top corner.
Paulinho made it 2-0 from a Dani Alves cross and Oscar sent Jo running clear to add a third goal in injury time.
The game was the first international match to use goal-line technology, but it was not needed for any decisions.
With less than a year to go until Brazil hosts the World Cup finals, this is a tournament that will act as a dress rehearsal for the South Americans – on and off the pitch.
