"There could have been a situation where maybe the shoulder slump, the confidence, was blown".

Neymar, in turn, said he had accepted the armband "because I've learned a lot and I will learn much more, and this responsibility will be a good thing for me". The pitch didn't help but we managed to pass the ball well against a team that tried to pressure us. Neymar's goal was his 58th in 91 appearances for his country.

Yedlin wasn't too impressed by the decision as the Newcastle United defender turned around and asked the Mexican referee, Fernando Guerrero, "Did you see the World Cup?", in an apparent reference to Neymar's propensity for theatrics during the worldwide tournament earlier this summer.

Neymar was on target in Friday night's game against the US as he scored from the penalty spot just before half-time after Liverpool forward Firmino had given Brazil the lead. Trapp appeared to give him the slightest of pushes, and Fabinho tumbled past Brooks.

Neymar stutter-stepped in his run-up, Steffen dove to his right and the striker softly kicked the ball in the other way. The best USA chance was McKennie's left-footed shot off a Kellyn Acosta pass in the 66th, which went wide.

Yedlin could feature for his country again when United States of America host Mexico in Tennessee on Tuesday night. The temporary grass field installed over the artificial turf had some brown patches and was immediately removed to prepare for the New York Giants' opener Sunday against Jacksonville.
