Neymar scored twice as Brazil cruised past the United States 4-1 in an international friendly tie at Gillette Stadium in Massachusetts.

Givanildo Hulk put the tourists ahead following a high cross by Willian in the ninth minute before Neymar doubled the lead in the second half.

Subsequently, Rafinha scored his first international goal in the 64th minute as he flicked the ball behind his own right foot and then fired past goalkeeper Brad Guzan to give the five-time World Cup champions an unassailable 3-0 lead, the Guardian reported.

Neymar added his second goal three minutes later before Danny Williams scored a consolation goal for USA in injury time.

The Americans will next take on Mexico in the crucial CONCACAF Cup match in October.
