Brazil hit the court for the first time after the World Cup on Friday evening when they expectedly cruised past the United States 0-2 away at MetLife Stadium.
Tite sent out a very strong line-up featuring Roberto Firmino, Neymar, Philippe Coutinho, Casemiro and Douglas Costa on the pitch.
Liverpool’s striker and PSG’s star removed all doubts about the winner bagging two first half goals to make the difference between the two teams.
Selecao are now up against an easier opponent in the likes of El Salvador.
The friendly is scheduled for Tuesday evening and anything but a comprehensive victory for the five-time world champions would be an upset.
El Salvador will come into the game high on confidence after beating Montserrat 1-2 at the start of the CONCACAF Nations League Qualifications at the weekend.
Oscar Ceren was the hero as his brace completed team’s comeback away at Blakes Estate Stadium.

Brazil vs El Salvador: Prediction
Tite will likely make some changes to the side that played United States on Friday. The likes of Richarlison, Willian, Arthur, Everton and Alex Sandro could get the chance to start the game.
Nevertheless, the gap in quality between the two teams is still enormous and we expect Brazil to ease past their rivals without conceding a goal on Tuesday in Maryland.
