Tite yet to find the right blend in Brazil's unsatisfactory win over Uruguay

Neymar reacts during Brazil's friendly win over Uruguay.
Brazil earned a friendly win over Uruguay without ever getting out of second gear.

Brazil's past two games have ended up in 1-0 wins over their historic South American rivals -- first Argentina, and now Uruguay. Even so, there is something unsatisfactory about the scenario, and not just because Argentina have a caretaker coach in charge of an experimental team and Uruguay's defensive resources were so depleted and the victory came as a consequence of a disputed penalty.

Much more important than results at this stage of the South American calendar are performances. As hosts...

Neymar penalty decides battle of big forwards as Brazil better Uruguay

Neymar's penalty was the difference in Brazil's 1-0 friendly win over Uruguay.

LONDON -- Three quick thoughts from Brazil's 1-0 friendly win over Uruguay at the Emirates Stadium on Friday.

1. Neymar decides battle of the forwards

You don't usually associate a game featuring Neymar, Luis Suarez, Roberto Firmino and Edinson Cavani with a cold, drizzly night in north London, but the Emirates played host to one of South America's most historic rivalries on Friday.

Brazil came out on top, beating Uruguay 1-0 in this slightly underwhelming friendly thanks to a contentious...

Brazil, Uruguay have opportunity to experiment with attacking options

Take an in-depth look at how Neymar's tattoos were brought to life in this unique comic book.

With no competitive games until next June, national team football in South America is still going through its silly season.

Colombia have no permanent coach and no games lined up for these FIFA dates. Argentina still have a caretaker coach in charge for their two games against Mexico. Ecuador have appointed Hernan Dario Gomez, but he admits that his team to face Peru and Panama is still at the experimental stage.

Some friendlies, though, are more serious than others. And the South American highlight...

Uruguay's potential driving Oscar Washington Tabarez, 71, to another World Cup tilt

The ESPN FC crew answer your tweets on Barcelona's biggest weakness, Luis Suarez's future and if Liverpool have any vulnerabilities this season.

Oscar Washington Tabarez hauled himself onto a plane for the marathon journey from South America to South Korea, where his Uruguay side are in action on Friday, before taking on Japan next Tuesday.

It is just over 30 years since Tabarez first took charge of Uruguay, in a spell that ended with second round elimination at the 1990 World Cup in Italy.

Uruguay then failed to make it to three of the next four World Cups, and fell in the group phase of the one they did reach. It seemed that the great...

Amid Uruguayan continuity, pressure is on Brazil and Argentina seek new start

In the four-year cycle of international football, the year that follows a World Cup is silly season for South American countries.

Competitive action does not resume until next June, with the Copa America in Brazil, but even though there is a title at stake, the primary aim for many coaches will be to prepare a squad for 2022 qualifiers, which begin toward the end of 2019.

Until then, there is nothing but friendlies. Many are money-chasing exercises played around the world, but that does not render...
