Everton forward Richarlison netted  as Brazil defeated Ecuador with two clean goals to stay top of the South American qualifying group for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Paris St-Germain's Neymar got the second with a retaken penalty following a foul on Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus.

The result means Brazil have won all five of their World Cup qualifiers.

They top the 10-team South America group with 15 points from five games, four ahead of second-placed Argentina.

Ecuador are third with nine points after winning three of their previous four qualifiers, and Brazil struggled to break them down, despite being the better side for much of the match.
