Brazil 3-0 Venezuela: Neymar shines with a goal and two assists as Selecao kick off Copa America campaign in style

Brazil get off to a winning start in the Copa America after beating Venezuela 3-1.

Marquinhos gave them the lead in the first half after he bundled in a corner, but they arguably should’ve had more after creating some great chances.

Neymar doubled the lead from the penalty spot in the second half, confidently slotting it past Graterol.

Gabi then came off the bench to wrap it up late on when he tapped Neymar’s cross into an empty net from close range.

There are no upsets for the hosts tonight and they get the first points on the board to go top of Group A ahead of Colombia and Ecuador’s match later.

Next up for them is Peru. Venezuela got off to a tough start, but they’ll be hoping to bounce back against Colombia next time out.
