Philippe Coutinho was on target for Brazil on Friday as Tite’s men hammered Bolivia 5-0 in World Cup qualifying in Sao Paulo.

Marquinhos opened the scoring in the 16th minute when he powered a header from a Danilo cross past goalkeeper Carlos Lampe.

Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino tapped home Brazil’s second on the half-hour mark and then made it 3-0 three minutes after half-time.

Bolivia defender Carraso headed a Coutinho cross past his own goalkeeper for Brazil’s fourth of the night before the Barcelona star sealed the win.

Coutinho came flying in to head home a Neymar cross to make it 5-0 and give Brazil the perfect start to their campaign.
