What Neymar Did To Austrian Defender Should Be Illegal

What Neymar Did To Austrian Defender Should Be Illegal”

Neymar scored his second goal in two matches since returning from injury on Sunday, netting with a superb second-half strike as Brazil defeated Austria 3-0 in its final warmup game ahead of the Fifa World Cup finals in Russian Federation.

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.

Marko Arnautovic gave Brazil a couple of early frights before the South Americans went ahead in the 36th minute, Jesus scoring with a delightful dinked effort from a hard angle for his 10th goal in 17 internationals.

You have to go back to 1978 for the last time Brazil failed to finish top of their group at a World Cup and they are overwhelming favourites to do so again.

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

Neymar completed 83 minutes before making way for Douglas Costa - a decision Tite explained was taken as a precaution against any potential muscular strains for his star man. Fernandinho dropping to the bench to accommodate Neymar and give Coutinho a central role was the only adjustment to the side that faced Croatia but Tite once again refuted suggestions his XI to take on Switzerland in Rostov is locked in.

Coming off the back of an encouraging 2-1 win over holders Germany in the previous fixture, the hosts tried to put up another fight, but after a positive start, were completely blown out of water by a belligerent Seleccao.

Is Neymar ready for the World Cup?

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

Tite said his team "can get a bit more effective but still have a week left to work on that".

Which team are you supporting in the 2018 World Cup? Imagine watching that goal as a Switzerland, Costa Rica or Serbia player.

The Selecao will now fly to Russia fresh from victories over Croatia, Austria, Russia and the defending world champions, Germany.
