Brazil denied by resolute Panama

Brazil were held to a 1-1 draw against Panama in an international friendly played at Porto's Dragao Stadium on Saturday.

AC Milan's Lucas Paqueta claimed his first international goal for the five-time World Cup winners before captain Adolfo Machado responded for the side in 76th place in the world rankings.

Injured PSG forward Neymar watched from the stands as he recovers from a fractured right foot.

"The performance wasn't brilliant but it wasn't below par," coach Tite said. "When we go to the Copa America we will make more accurate choices to be more efficient."

The Selecao opened the scoring just after the half-hour mark. Midfielder Paqueta was on the end of a deep Casemiro cross to volley home at the back post.
