Liverpool forward Firmino on target for Brazil in Senegal draw

Roberto Firmino was on target for Brazil in Thursday's 1-1 draw with Senegal in Singapore.

The Liverpool striker opened the scoring after just eight minutes when he latched onto a pass from Manchester City rival Gabriel Jesus before chipping the ball past Alfred Gomis from close range.

Senegal levelled with a penalty by Bristol City's Famara Diedhiou on the stroke of half-time.

Neymar made his 100th appearance for Selecao, becoming just the seventh man to do so.

Firmino's Liverpool teammate Sadio Mane also featured and nearly scored the winner for his country with five minutes remaining.
