A controversial Neymar penalty earned Brazil victory against Uruguay in a fiercely contested friendly at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium.

The Uruguay players were furious at the decision and accused Danilo of diving.

Danilo looked to have handled as he barged his way into Uruguay's area, before going down easily after hanging out a leg to ensure contact with Laxalt - Neymar sending Martin Campana the wrong way from 12 yards, with Richarlison squandering a great opportunity to wrap up the win late on. Referee Craig Pawson took a while before pointing to the spot and did so only on the advice of one of his linesman.

At 22 and 19 respectively, Matias Suarez and Bruno Mendez made some impact on their worldwide debuts, more than holding their own against Neymar, Roberto Firmino and Douglas Costa, with Oscar Tabarez's unwavering belief in Uruguay's youngsters justified.

It was Neymar's former Barcelona team-mate Suarez that drew the first meaningful save from either goalkeeper, as Alisson reacted sharply to tip the striker's shot over.

Although the fans had little to cheer, both managers had reason to celebrate with youngsters Bruno Mendez and Matias Suarez starting in defence for the first time for Uruguay and Napoli midfielder Allan making a second-half debut for Brazil.

The versatile forward already has 14 caps for Brazil, and last played for his country during the historic 7-1 World Cup semi-final loss to Germany, where he played the full 90 minutes. Cavani's absence was noticeable when the two-time world champion was eliminated in the quarterfinals by eventual champion France.

Uruguay had enjoyed the better of the chances prior to the penalty incident, with Alisson having made a series of fine saves to deny Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani.

"Cavani does make marking hard and he gives Suarez space", he said.
