Neymar on target again as Brazil beat Austria

Neymar on target again as Brazil beat Austria

Back with globoesporte, research carried out by the outlet found that from over a thousand Brazilians that were surveyed, Tite received an 8.8 mark out of 10 for Brazil's pre-friendly World Cups while Neymar received 8.1 to match the 8.2 given for his off-the-bench cameo against Croatia. Brazil has one of the best training academies in the world that develops fundamentally sound players who impact the game on both offense and defense. The five-time world champions are feeling quite at home at the tourist destination by the Black Sea, enjoying warm temperatures and a private beach.

Brazil star Neymar is growing in confidence and has "lost the fear to play" ahead of the World Cup, according to goalkeeper Alisson.

"But even if Neymar is 100 per cent, other teams are wanting to win, too".

The supporting cast in attack comprises players of the calibre of Willian of Chelsea, Phillippe Coutinho of Barcelona, Douglas Costa of Juventus and Neymar "Mr Charismatic" Jr.

Played in Vienna, Austria, Tite's men go up against a talented Austria team that finished four points back of a qualifying spot to make the World Cup.

Ederson's stellar debut season with Manchester City, not to mention his outstanding distribution skills, won't, however, be enough to dislodge Liverpool transfer target Alisson. "That's a plus for us".

Neymar took it sportingly, for he probably knew that he was the one who had started it earlier! He and other players posted photos taking time off by the beach. Almost 4,000 people were handed tickets to watch the team's first activity on Russian soil. "I think this is the moment we'll see the best of Brazilian football again", the 45-year-old said. "We are happy that it happened".

And Brazil, as a team, looks ready as well.

Fans loudly chanted Neymar's name during the session, and the squad was at ease throughout.

Sochi, which hosted the 2014 Winter Olympics, was always Brazil's first choice for its base.

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

The FIFA International Friendly between FIFA Friendly between France vs U.S. match starts at 07:30 AM IST (On Sunday).

While it is all going well for Brazil, their arch-rivals Argentina were hit with the news that their captain and talisman Lionel Messi will decide on his worldwide future by their performance in Russian Federation.

In his blog on UOL Esporte, respected journalist Paulo Vinicius Coelho, known as PVC, noted how Brazil had "transformed a hard game into an easy [one]" by beating an Austria side that had won its last seven fixtures.
