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

In a friendly against Austria, Neymar started and scored Brazil's second goal, leaving a defender on his behind with a lovely move before nutmegging the goalkeeper.

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.

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.

The birthday prank took place at Brazil's pre-World Cup training session in Russian Federation - they kick-start their campaign against Swtizerland on Sunday.

"If [Austria] opens up in defence, 'go for it, ' I told him at the break".

Coutinho nearly got his second and Brazil's fourth in the 73rd minute but his curling strike from distance rattled the upright with Linder well beaten.

Each time, Neymar remained sitting on the pitch and holding his left ankle with a painful face, though he eventually got up and didn't looked hampered during play. Several users shared the video on various social media platforms showing the members of the Selecao having a gala time ahead of the World Cup.

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. Fred underwent further examinations in Vienna this weekend.

Without providing details of the injury, Tite said Fred's situation was "improving" but didn't hint whether the midfielder could be back for the team's World Cup opener.

"Spain and Germany I also like, but Brazil would be my idea of the strongest team".

Austria failed to qualify for the World Cup. It was the last game of preparation before the World Cup. Tite's all-star cast, spearheaded by Neymar, are likely to coast through the group but the second qualifying spot is very much up for grabs with Switzerland and Serbia evenly matched, while Costa Rica are not averse to causing an upset. It saw a seven-match winning streak, including victories over World Cup host Russian Federation and world champion Germany, come to an end.
