Firmino tees one up as Brazil beat Austria

12 June 2018, 05:28 | Henrietta Morgan

Neymar made it two just past the hour mark as he latched onto Willian's chipped pass before sitting Aleksandar Dragovic down with an impudent piece of skill and sidefooting home.

Neymar and Co. open their 2018 World Cup campaign versus Switzerland on Sunday 18th June, before facing Costa Rica then Serbia. With less than a week to go until the tournament, the Brazilian superstar still hadn't started a game since fracturing a bone in his foot in February.

There were brief fears for Neymar early on when Austria captain Julian Baumgartlinger trod on his ankle.

Below, in a friendly against Germany, Joachim Low's team pressed Brazil high up the pitch in an attempt to force a mistake by the defenders during build-up.

Jesus, Neymar and Coutinho got the goals as Tite's side produced an extremely encouraging performance in their final warm-up match.

Roberto Firmino's incredible season with Liverpool led to increasing calls in Brazil for Tite to find a place for him in the starting XI, mostly by giving him Jesus' spot in attack.

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.

Four years later, playing as hosts under Luiz Felipe Scolari, Brazil were overly dependent on Neymar as they muddled their way through to the semi-finals before losing 7-1 to Germany, when he was injured.

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. The world's most expensive player came back from a broken metatarsal last weekend to rifle in a game-sealing goal in the 2-0 win over Croatia at Anfield.

Austria failed to qualify for the World Cup.

If he lacked conviction in the previous outing and watched his Liverpool counterpart strengthen his case with a goal, then Jesus today looked like a man with a objective. It saw a seven-match winning streak, including victories over World Cup host Russian Federation and world champion Germany, come to an end.
