Lucas Paqueta scored his first goal for Brazil in a 1-1 draw with Panama in an international friendly at the Estadio do Dragao on Saturday.
Manager Tite gave Brazil's famed No. 10 shirt to AC Milan midfielder Paqueta and he delivered just after the half-hour mark with a cushioned volley finish at the back post after a Casemiro cross found him unmarked.
But Panama answered back moments later with a perfectly worked set piece -- Adolfo Machado guiding his long-range header past Brazil goalkeeper...
Brazil will play their first friendly of the year against Panama on March 23 in Portugal.
The Brazilian football federation said on Friday the match will be at FC Porto's Dragao Stadium, with the Selecao set to play the Czech Republic in Prague three days later.
Coach Tite's great goal for the year is to win the Copa America at home. It is unlikely he will count on striker Neymar for either of the friendlies with the Paris Saint-Germain forward recovering from another foot injury.
The U.S. men's national team's Gregg Berhalter era began with a 3-0 defeat of Panama in a friendly on Sunday at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
Berhalter, the former coach of Major League Soccer's Columbus Crew, was named to the U.S. position on Dec. 4. He replaced interim coach Dave Sarachan, who took over in November 2017 after Jurgen Klinsmann and Bruce Arena failed to qualify the U.S. for the 2018 World Cup.
