Neymar and Coutinho egged by Brazil team-mates

13 June 2018

Brazil arrived in Russian Federation on Monday hungry to make amends for their World Cup humiliation in 2014 with Neymar apparently fighting fit, as Lionel Messi cast doubt over his global future.

When is the FIFA International Friendly between Brazil v Austria going to be played?

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

"When you are always exchanging passes and moving the ball around, it wears the other team down", said Tite.

Despite Brazil's chances looking up, coach Tite remains little-known outside his own country where he has spent almost entire career, coaching more than 10 teams, and including three stints at domestic club Corinthians where he made his name. "Dreaming is not forbidden".

"I don't know the limit of Neymar, " Brazil coach Tite said through an interpreter when asked if his main striker was back at full strength.

Ronaldo, who scored 62 goals in 98 appearances for Brazil, also scored over 100 goals for Real Madrid during a four-and-a-half year stint last decade. However, he was a different player in Vienna and managed to score his 10th goal in 17 games for Brazil. "Not only was the attack well, the group went very well". With how the draw worked out, Germany and Brazil could potentially meet for a rematch, either in the first match of the knockout round, or the final.

Defender Victor Lindelof has insisted that he has had "a good year" during his first season with Manchester United . "Yeah, why not? Everybody knows Fellaini in the Premier League ." the Arsenal legend told Sky Sports .

Six minutes later, substitute Roberto Firmino set Coutinho clear down the left and he curled his shot wide of Lindner in for the third.

Neymar struck just after the hour as he sensationally bamboozled the Austria defence to score and Coutinho wrapped the victory up minutes later. "We came into a game with lots of [physical] contact and had a great performance".

"We've just lost three finals in a row, which has led to us going through some hard moments with the press", the Barcelona forward said.

"That gives you confidence".

He joked about Austria's rough approach.
