Neymar & Philippe Coutinho egged in Brazil's World Cup preparations

Sidney Guerrero | 12 June, 2018, 17:29

Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar scored for the second straight game as Brazil cruised to a 3-0 win over Austria in their final World Cup warm-up clash.

Coutinho drilled a low, long-range effort that drew a fine save from Heinz Lindner and the Austria goalkeeper brilliantly denied Paulinho with his feet shortly after Thiago Silva planted a Neymar corner wide.

Tite's men, who defeated Croatia at Anfield last week, controlled matters across the 90 minutes at Ernst-Happel-Stadion, rarely looking threatened after Gabriel Jesus opened the scoring from a tight angle in the first half.

However, Brazil will start their World Cup campaign against Switzerland (June 17), an adversary that will hardly attack them in a gung-ho fashion: as a matter of fact, the same could be said of the other Group E teams, Costa Rica and Serbia.

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

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.

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.

Tearful Dennis Rodman says he 'took bullets' for Kim friendship
It is unknown if North Korea will be willing to put its nukes on the table in talks with the US. "I got so many death threats". Rodman said he was "brushed off" when he tried to approach former US President Barack Obama about relations with North Korea .

The 26-year-old then started in Vienna on Sunday, scoring Brazil's second in the straightforward win, of which he played 84 minutes.

The Selecao superstar moved to 55 goals in 85 caps, equaling the record of 1994 World Cup victor Romario.

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.

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

Messi, who will turn 31 during the World Cup, believes Spain, Brazil, Germany, France and Belgium are the leading contenders for the title.

Austria failed to qualify for the World Cup.
