Brazil coach, Tite says the Selecao are recovering from the shock exit from the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Captain Neymar and Firmino scored in the 2-0 friendly win over the United States of America.
Brazil were favourites going into the showpiece event in Russia, but were stopped by Belgium in the quarterfinals.
Speaking after Brazil’s victory stateside, head coach Tite told reporters: “We are recovering the work from pain and a frustration of elimination. It has an emotional aspect.
“This was a feeling we noticed when we met with the athletes. And it’s a resumption in which Douglas Costa started only his second match. I was asked about the other athletes. But the others are the ones that were already but need more time on the field.
“We have to give Firmino, Douglas Costa, Fred more chance. And then the newbies. But having these players on the pitch so they have the opportunity and time for a better analysis. And this was beyond my expectation.”
