SINGAPORE – Brazil drew 1-1 with Senegal in a friendly in Singapore on Thursday as their run without a win stretched to three games, the longest since coach Tite took over in 2016.
Roberto Firmino opened the scoring for Brazil after eight minutes when he ran on to a pass from Gabriel Jesus and chipped the ball past goalkeeper Alfred Gomis from close range.
Senegal levelled with a penalty by Famara Diedhiou on the stroke of halftime after Marquinhos brought down Sadio Mane.
Both sides had chances to get a winner but Senegal will rue missing an opportunity to beat the five-times world champions.
Africa’s highest ranked team matched a full-strength Brazil throughout, with Mane hitting the post with five minutes left.
