Brazil 1-1 Panama: Ederson, Firmino and Richarlison feature in surprise draw

Lucas Paqueta
Paqueta (10) scored his first goal for Brazil

Five-time world champions Brazil were held to a surprise friendly draw by Panama, ranked just 76th in the world.

Brazil gave starts to Premier League players Ederson, Roberto Firmino and Richarlison, but it was AC Milan's Lucas Paqueta who scored the opener.

The lead only lasted four minutes, however, as Panama defender Adolfo Machado levelled in the first half.

Brazil, ranked third, hit the woodwork twice in the second half through Richarlison and Casemiro.

Manchester City's Gabriel Jesus and West Ham winger Felipe Anderson both came on in the second half, but were unable to make an impact in the game, which was played in the Portuguese city of Porto.
