Brazil romped to a 7-0 friendly win over Honduras in their final international friendly before the 2019 Copa America win on Sunday.

It was a big win for Tite’s men with Gabriel Jesus, Thiago Silva, Philippe Coutinho, Gabriel Jesus, David Neres, Roberto Firmino and Richarlison all on target.

Yet Brazil also suffered more injury woe, as Arthur was forced off with a knee injury after a really poor challenge by Romell Quioto who saw red for his efforts.

It seemed like a precautionary substitution from Brazil ahead of the Copa America, but we will have to wait and see just how bad the problem is for the Barcelona midfielder.

There was better news for Coutinho, as he scored Brazil’s third from the penalty spot, picked up an assist for Thiago Silva’s goal and also hit the woodwork.

Brazil are already without star man Neymar for the Copa America due to an ankle injury and kick off their campaign on Saturday against Bolivia.
