Not only does Neymar look healthy, he's making any concerns look foolish.

Brazil will play their opening World Cup game against Switzerland who has been in good form of late.

Gabriel Jesus gave Brazil the lead after 36 minutes with a slick finish from a tight angle.

Neymar started a game for the first time since injuring his metatarsal in February although he played in the second half of last week's win 2-0 over Croatia when he celebrated his return with a goal. He stayed on for nearly the entire game, being replaced in the 84th by Douglas Costa.

Following his brilliant effort on Sunday, Neymar now has 55 goals for Brazil not to mention 33 assists.

"I wanted to pay homage to him in some way because he is an idol".

Neymar was running at full stride against Austria.

His fellow attackers Gabriel Jesus and Coutinho also scored in a match where Brazil dominated Austria that has been on an eight match unbeaten streak.

Manchester City striker Jesus also insisted Tite's side are ready for the tournament. "When we spring him into action in the last third of the field, he is lethal".

It fed data on team characteristics, individual players, and recent team performance into four machine learning models to analyse the number of goals scored in each match.

Under Tite, Brazil have regained the swagger that has been missing from recent World Cup squads.

Costa is expected to be a backup for Neymar during the World Cup.

However, Tite had midfielder Fred left off the team after he hurt his right ankle in training on Thursday. Fred underwent further examinations in Vienna this weekend.

"I don't know if I can say that this will be the team at the start of the World Cup", he told reporters.

On Sunday, those in a bitterly divided land may put their differences to one side and finally unite in order to get behind a team reimagined under Tite and with a genuine chance of going all the way in Russian Federation.
