Neymar shines for Brazil

In Vienna yesterday afternoon, Brazil completed preparations for the World Cup with a resounding 3-0 victory over a physical Austria and goals from its leading attacking trident in Gabriel Jesus, Neymar and Philippe Coutinho.

On 63 minutes, the PSG attacker produced a moment of sheer fleet-footed, bamboozling Leicester defender Aleksandar Dragović and leaving him on his arse, before slotting past Heinz Lindner...

The Paris Saint-Germain star made his first start for Brazil since November as he continues his comeback from foot surgery and was on the end of several fouls he did not seem to appreciate.

The Paris St Germain forward scored his 55th global goal to go level with Romario and sit joint-third in Brazil's all-time scoring charts during their impressive victory.

Judging by the way Tite's exciting side qualified for the World Cup and how they've performed in warm-ups, this time around Brazil are ready for anything thrown their way. "When we spring him into action in the last third of the field, he is lethal".

Tite can feel encouraged by his team's performance on Sunday, especially with the Austrian side having beaten Germany 2-1 in a recent friendly.

Bemba was found guilty in 2016 of crimes committed in the neighbouring Central African Republic (CAR) in 2002-2003. Judges are to decide "shortly whether Mr Bemba's continued detention is warranted", Van den Wyngaert said.

Costa's return was also good news for Tite.

Surprisingly, according to the data the South American nation, who have won the football World Cup five-times, are not among the top nations heavily interested in football.

However, Tite had midfielder Fred left off the team after he hurt his right ankle in training on Thursday.

Unbeaten now in 10 games, Brazil look very much capable of going all the way in Russian Federation.

Neymar, who will hope to spearhead Brazil's bid for a sixth World Cup win, led the host of Selecao players, who appeared in an unerringly calm and upbeat mood ahead of what promises to be a scintillating tournament.

"Eight fouls - that shows that we use aggressive marking to try and win the ball and then come out playing", he said after Sunday's game, the last before their opening Group E game against Switzerland on June 17. It saw a seven-match winning streak, including victories over World Cup host Russian Federation and world champion Germany, come to an end.
