  • Big arrival Neymar gestures to the crowd as Brazil touch down in Russia

Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar has spoken of fears over his fitness holding up following a broken metatarsal in February and he was forced to withstand some robust challenges before a wonderful solo effort made it 2-0 in the 63rd minute - his 55th worldwide goal sending him level with Romario in third on Brazil's all-time scoring chart.

Tite's side go into the tournament off the back of warm-up wins over Croatia and Austria.

Neymar's talents know no bounds in the eyes of Brazil head coach Tite after the superstar forward made a dazzling return to his starting line-up this afternoon.

The Selecao star insists the five-time champions are dreaming again of winning the World Cup in Russian Federation after cruising past Austria 3-0 in their final hit-out ahead of the tournament.

Selecao eventually broke the deadlock with 10 minutes remaining in the first-half, with Gabriel Jesus slotting into the far corner from a tight angle. We managed to play, involve their team and make another big game.

Neymar struck just after the hour as he sensationally bamboozled the Austria defence to score and Coutinho wrapped the victory up minutes later.

Manchester City's precocious striker is likely to get the nod, despite his injury-interrupted campaign for the Premier League champions, and with a record of nine goals in 16 appearances the 21-year-old has proved he belongs at this level already.

"The game was important to us".

For the 2018 World Cup, it's easy to pick out the favourites.

"France obviously have a lot of good players but I'm a bit sceptical about them in tournaments".

Argentina lost the 2014 World Cup final 1-0 to Germany after extra time, before suffering successive defeats by Chile on penalties at the Copa America in 2015 and 2016.

Following his brilliant effort on Sunday, Neymar now has 55 goals for Brazil not to mention 33 assists.
