Neymar and Gabriel Jesus led Brazil to a long-awaited qualifying win in Quito, securing a 3-0 victory over Ecuador.
Barcelona star Neymar struck from the penalty spot before Gabriel Jesus netted a brace on debut on Thursday.
It marked a first ever qualifying win in the altitude of the Ecuador capital for Brazil, who were led by Tite for the first time.
Juan Carlos Paredes saw red for the hosts not long after Neymar’s opener as Brazil claimed an important win.
Gabriel Jesus, who will join Manchester City at the start of next year, struck twice after that to complete a stunning debut.
With the victory, Brazil moved briefly into fourth in the CONMEBOL qualifying standings.
