Neymar scored all four goals as Brazil eased to a 4-0 friendly win over Japan in Singapore.

The 22-year-old has now taken his tally to 40 in 58 internationals.

He rounded Japan goalkeeper Eiji Kawashima and slotted in for the first, before adding a second from a pass by Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho.

The Barcelona forward, who helped Brazil to victory against Argentina on Saturday, swept in to make it 3-0 and headed the fourth from Kaka's cross.

Neymar also went close with a free-kick that hit the post, while Kaka's header was pushed on to the bar by Kawashima.

Japan forward Shinji Okazaki also struck the woodwork with a fierce right-foot drive.
