Russian Federation 2018: Neymar led Brazil thrash Austria in final warm up match

Russian Federation 2018: Neymar led Brazil thrash Austria in final warm up match

Timo Werner seems sure of his place after another good season for Leipzig, albeit with most of his goals in the first half of the campaign. However, most fans contented themselves with chanting the name of the world's most expensive player, who arrived with his teammates in Russian Federation in the early hours of Monday fresh from scoring in a 3-0 friendly win over Austria in Vienna. But Coutinho makes Brazil a more efficient team and certainly much more joyful to watch. Tite tinkered with lineup and formation changes during qualifying, but has all but nailed down his starting XI when the games matter.

The top two teams from each group qualify for the last 16.

One young boy broke through security barriers and managed to get close to a group of Brazil players including Neymar, taking a photograph before being led away. He experienced a few setbacks on the road to recovery, but eventually got back into match fitness in May. It might give you a panic attack.

'We need Neymar on the field'. "Not only was the attack well, the group went very well".

Fatherly, enthusiastic and protective when the occasion demands, he is beloved by the players, while his collaborative approach behind the scenes, where he has a small army of back-room staff, has also won him admirers. The back four of Marcelo, Miranda, Thiago Silva and Danilo look nailed on.

VAR will be the acronym of the moment: video assistant referees in soccer-speak, instant replay for most viewers at home.

Neymar took it sportingly, for he probably knew that he was the one who had started it earlier!

Jesus cracked open an egg on Coutinho's head before the PSG player dumped flour on him.

In dashcam footage of the rescue, Mannino is seen running after the child before carrying it back to his cruiser. Mannino told WBBM-TV that he at first thought he spotted a stray dog, but then his parental instincts took over.

Barcelona midfielder Coutinho added the third goal shortly afterwards. "We won. Not just because we won but before the World Cup I got a very hard injury and a long time for recovering". The Germans arched their eyebrows at this ridiculous carnival of pity and thumped Brazil 7-1.

Costa is expected to be a backup for Neymar during the World Cup. "It is our style of play", elaborated Tite.

Despite the quality they boast within their ranks, Brazil were hit by the injury to veteran defender Dani Alves who was eventually ruled out of the competition. The reason this works so well is because of the two, and sometimes three, defensive-minded midfielders that play behind the front three. The shot-stopper made 105 appearances for his country, and was in goal when Brazil won the 1994 World Cup.

Casemiro, in particular, has been criticized for his on-the-ball skills and passing ability.

The side look more coherent than for a decade, thanks in large part to an overdue rejig of the squad. However, it does not mean that fans and his Selecao teammates aren't thrilled and relieved to see him back.

The European champions play Spain in the 2014 Winter Olympics host city Sochi in the opening match for both nations on Friday.

Brazil's attack is just about as strong as possible.

All the familiar faces were present, including the likes of Neymar, Marcelo, Gabriel Jesus, and of course Coutinho.
