Austria 0 Brazil 3: Jesus, Neymar, Coutinho on target

No. 1 USA 1-0 England 1950 England captain Billy Wright and U.S. captain Ed Mc Ilvenny exchange souvenirs at the start of their match

Neymar's goal in the 63rd minute was even better as he collected the ball on the left of the area, performed a drag-back which left Aleksandar Dragovic on the floor before sending his shot between Lindner's legs.

Neymar started a game for the first time since injuring his metatarsal in February although he played in the second half of last week's win 2-0 over Croatia when he celebrated his return with a goal.

Neymar and Co. open their 2018 World Cup campaign versus Switzerland on Sunday 18th June, before facing Costa Rica then Serbia.

Brazil will hope Neymar can carry the hopes of the nation.

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

Against Austria, he had no attempt on goal in the opening hour but went down three times following rough challenges by the home side.

The first scare came in the third minute following a late tackle from behind by midfielder Alessandro Schoepf.

But as the clock ticks down to the opener in Moscow's imposing 80,000-capacity Luzhniki stadium, the tournament is beginning to catch the public mood, with about 3,500 fans attending Australia's training session in the central city of Kazan.

The most extreme examples were the Confederations Cup final against Spain in 2013 when Brazil battered their opponents with 26 fouls and the infamous World Cup quarter-final against Colombia in 2014, where they gave away 31 free kicks. Fred underwent further examinations in Vienna this weekend.

Neymar, who will hope to spearhead Brazil's bid for a sixth World Cup win, led the host of Selecao players, who appeared in an unerringly calm and upbeat mood ahead of what promises to be a scintillating tournament.

Speaking to reporters, Neymar said: "For me it is a great honour, great happiness to reach Romario, to be among the top scorers of the Brazilian team".
