DeAndre Yedlin's Comment To The Referee After Fouling Neymar Instantly Goes Viral

Neymar converted a penalty kick in the 44th for his 58th goal in 91 global appearances, third in Brazilian history behind Pele (77) and Ronaldo (62). New general manager Earnie Stewart said this week a permanent coach will be announced later this year.

Brazil, playing their first match since Belgium knocked them out of the World Cup quarter-finals, improved their record against the United States to 18 wins in 19 games. When Brazil beat the USA 2-0 at Metlife Stadium in August 2010 shortly after the venue opened, the game drew 77,223.

Neymar is going to get a lot of this.

The Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson Becker appeared to have little to do and managed to save a goal at 72 minutes by USA midfielder Wil Trapp, what was perhaps the US' best chance in the match. The Paris St-Germain star caused controversy with his diving during the summer's World Cup in Russian Federation and the Brazilian was involved in another comical incident on Saturday.

The referee though whistled for a free-kick for a foul by the Newcastle player on Neymar midway through the first half.

But the 49ers also could not cash in on four plays from inside the Vikings' 5-yard line, ending with Morris' fumble. Garoppolo finished 15 for 33 for 261 yards and a touchdown pass to rookie Dante Pettis .

Neymar, who now plays for France's PSG, converted the penalty with a soft shot to the left as Steffen lunged to the right.

The best US chance was Weston McKennie's left-footed shot off a Kellyn Acosta pass in the 66th, which went wide.

Yedlin could feature for his country again when United States of America host Mexico in Tennessee on Tuesday night.

Paris Saint-Germain star forward Neymar Jr. on Friday had been named as full-time captain by the Brazilian national football team head coach Tite.

The pace of the game slowed down at the hour mark - with Brazil making use of all the permitted six substitutes to bring on Willian and give debuts to Richarlison and Lucas Paqueta. Dede entered in the 80th, his first appearance in five years.
