VIENNA (AP) Brazil midfielder Roberto Firmino scored his first international goal in the 83rd minute to help his team beat Austria 2-1 in a friendly on Tuesday.

Firmino, who replaced Luiz Adriano in the 62nd, found the net with a thundering 25-meter strike that beat Austria goalkeeper Ramazan Oeczan.

David Luiz gave Brazil the lead with a header from Oscar's corner in the 64th. Aleksandar Dragovic leveled for Austria from the penalty spot in the 75th after Oscar fouled Andreas Weimann.

It was Brazil's sixth straight win though coach Dunga's team conceded its first goal since it hosted the World Cup.

Austria saw a nine-match unbeaten streak come to an end.
