Neymar scored in the 83rd minute to give Brazil a 1-0 victory over Colombia on Friday night in an exhibition game before 73,429 fans at Sun Life Stadium.

Neymar’s free kick from 20 meters landed inside the upper right post and past the outstretched hands of goalkeeper David Ospina.

The Brazilian was making his first appearance for the national team since sustaining a serious back injury in a 2-1 victory over Colombia in the World Cup quarterfinals.

“What makes Neymar special is he possesses the natural skills few players have,” Brazil coach Dunga said.
