Neymar on target again as Brazil beat Austria

Neymar on target again as Brazil beat Austria

The victory capped Brazil's World Cup preparations ahead of their opener in Russian Federation against Switzerland next Sunday.

So, how have they managed that?

Brazil are certainly one of the top contenders for the title with a team filled with pace and quality.

The team have great balance as well, with Casemiro protecting a solid defence.

Below, in a friendly against Germany, Joachim Low's team pressed Brazil high up the pitch in an attempt to force a mistake by the defenders during build-up.

Yeah, pretty safe to say Neymar is ready for the World Cup ...

Firmino's all-round game is perhaps more in keeping with Brazil's footballing ethos, but what this current side really calls out for is a pure goalscorer and Jesus more than fits the bill.

Brazil will hope Neymar can carry the hopes of the nation.

Jose Mourinho says Cristiano Ronaldo will lead Portugal to the World Cup semi-finals in Russian Federation, seeing off France in the process and setting up a final four clash against five-time champions Brazil. Silva's PSG colleague Marquinhos would be forgiven if he feels gutted: he played the majority of the games under Tite as the Brazilians kept 16 clean sheets in 21 occasions.

For Tite, however, fouling the opponents means his team has wasted a chance to win back possession of the ball and start a new attack.

Brazil play their opening game at the tournament on Sunday, when they take on Switzerland in Rostov-on-Don.

The defense is solid, the forwards are lethal when they get a sniff of goal and they have the patience to unlock the most stubborn defenses.

Soon after Neymer's goal, which was set up by Chelsea' Willian, Philippe Courinho scored another cracker, after a slick one-two with former Liverpool team-mate Roberto Firmino.

The Selecao superstar moved to 55 goals in 85 caps, equaling the record of 1994 World Cup victor Romario.

Neymar, who was making his first start in three months after recovering from a foot injury, doubled the advantage with a fine goal just after the hour-mark before Coutinho added a third in the 69th-minute.
