Bolivia:

Neymar scored twice as Brazil defeated Bolivia 4-0 in a friendly on Saturday, giving coach Luiz Felipe Scolari his first win since returning to the national team last December.

Brazil ended their longest winless streak in 12 years with this win at Bolivia.

Ronaldinho set up three goals in the match, which was played in honour of the 14-year-old Bolivian boy killed in a Copa Libertadores match between Brazilian club Corinthians and Bolivia's San Jose in February. Part of the proceeds was given to the family of Kevin Beltran Espada, who was hit in the head by a flare.

Scolari, who used only players from Brazilian clubs, had two draws and a defeat in the previous games of his comeback stint.

Leandro Damiao opened the scoring in the third, Neymar netted in the 30th and 43rd, and Leandro sealed the win in stoppage time.
