Brazil break their jinx

Brazil ended a run of five games without a win by easing to a 3-0 victory over South Korea in a friendly in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday with Philippe Coutinho scoring the pick of the goals.

Coutinho curled a free-kick from 22 yards high into the net to put Brazil 2-0 up after 35 minutes.

Before that he had played a part in the opener, producing delightful footwork to pick out Renan Lodi, whose cross was headed in from close range by Lucas Paqueta.

Atletico Madrid left-back Lodi also set up the third goal which arrived shortly after half-time, his low delivery picking out Danilo to score with a first-time drive from just outside the area.

It is a first victory in six friendly outings for the Selecao since their triumph at the Copa America on home soil in July.
