Willian struck twice as Brazil earned a first win on the road to the 2018 World Cup by beating Venezuela 3-1 in Fortaleza.

Christian Santos had bundled in from close range in a rare Venezuelan foray into the Brazil attacking third, but the two-goal margin was soon restored.

Brazil had not played a competitive home match since their shocking...
