Raphinha put on a show in a five-star display at Parc des Princes after Brazil whitewashed Tunisia 5-1 in an international friendly encounter on Tuesday night. 

Barcelona summer signing Raphinha put Selecao ahead 11 minutes into the game in Paris before Montassar Talbi scored to level for the Carthage Eagles eight minutes later.

Richarlison gave Brazil the lead again when Tottenham star latched onto Raphinha’s neat through ball and drilled through Dahmen’s legs to make it 2-1.

Neymar made it 3-1 when he calmly converted from 12 yards after Aissa Laidouni dragged down Casemiro, before Raphinha fired home his second goal of the game from Richarlison’s lay-off.

Tunisia were reduced to 10 men before the break with Bronn shown a straight red card for a rash challenge on Neymar.

Antony and Vinicius Junior went close to increasing the advantage in the second half, before Pedro scored Brazil’s fifth 16 minutes from time – the Flamengo forward brilliantly volleying in his first international goal.

Casemiro and Thiago Silva each almost made it six, but the Selecao had already done more than enough to stretch their unbeaten streak to 15 matches.
