Turkey 0-4 Brazil

Neymar
Neymar, 22, has scored 42 goals for Brazil

Neymar scored twice as Brazil beat Turkey 4-0 in a friendly in Istanbul for their fifth successive win since their World Cup exit.

Brazil opened the scoring midway through the first half when Neymar drove past keeper Volkan Derimel.

Turkey defender Semih Kaya turned a cross into his own net to make it 2-0 before Chelsea's Willian tapped in.

Neymar then played a one-two with Willian before curling in Brazil's fourth in the second half.

The victory continued Brazil's impressive form under coach Dunga, who was appointed in July..

Dunga succeeded Luiz Felipe Scolari, who resigned after Brazil suffered the joint-heaviest defeat in their history when they lost 7-1 to Germany in the semi-final of the 2014 World Cup they were hosting.

Neymar, 22, was once again their key player but Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho played a huge part in the Barcelona forward's opener.

He played a 40-yard pass for Neymar, who took a touch to bring the ball under control before finishing with the outside of his boot.

Moments later, Brazil doubled their lead when a teasing cross by Danilo was turned into his own net by defender Kaya.

Atletico Madrid midfielder Arda Turan had a shot saved for Turkey before Brazil added a third before the break.

This time, Neymar turned creator as he dribbled his way down the left before sending a cross to the far post, where Willian was on hand to finish from close range.

Brazil wrapped up the win early in the second half when Willian and Neymar exchanged passes, before the latter held off a challenge to roll the ball into the far corner.
