Liverpool icon Dalglish urges fans: Don't boo Coutinho on Anfield return

He then ran to hug Brazilian soccer confederation doctor Rodrigo Lasmar on the sidelines at Anfield.

The effort leaves Neymar on 54 goals for his national team, one behind Romario, who is third on the country's all-time list, and with only Pele and Ronaldo ahead of him in the record books.

The Paris Saint-Germain star came on at half-time and blasted home in front of the Kop with 69 minutes gone, four years on from his double against the same opponents at the 2014 World Cup, before Roberto Firmino added a late second.

Brazil captain and No. 9 Gabriel Jesus was not as impressive in the first half of the match, and was replaced by Firmino after an hour.

"I am here to help Brazil".

Some supporters disagreed. Scroll down for the best tweets.

It was a notable afternoon also for former Liverpool striker Coutinho, who made his first appearance at Anfield since his transfer to Barcelona in January, and received a smattering of boos from some of his old club's supporters.

Visa payments back to ‘full capacity’

Until Neymar stepped onto the pitch it was Croatia who had the best opportunities in a match that seemed headed for a tiresome draw.

Hoffenheim striker Kramaric remained lively throughout a good spell for Croatia - during which Dejan Lovren headed just past the post at the Kop end - and the pair tangled again moments later.

Croatia set up in a 4-4-2 formation and overran the Brazilian midfield trio of Fernandinho, Casemiro and Paulinho.

Brazil will face Croatia on Sunday and play one more friendly against Austria before the start of the World Cup.

"Danilo was joking with me and I said told him that if he did not cross the ball to me properly I would give him a dressing down".

Brazil's World Cup opener is on June 17 against Switzerland.
