Neymar honoured to go level with Romario on 55 Brazil goals

The Selecao star insists the five-time champions are dreaming again of winning the World Cup in Russian Federation after cruising past Austria 3-0 in their final hit-out ahead of the tournament.

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.

A reintroduction to the starting line-up following on Sunday in Vienna and Neymar's lavish skills left Aleksandar Dragovic on his backside before slotting home Brazil's second in a 3-0 win over Austria.

"When you are always exchanging passes and moving the ball around, it wears the other team down", said Tite. Brazil are certainly one of the top contenders for the title with a team filled with pace and quality. "Dreaming is not forbidden". But fears of a right-back crisis seem to have been subdued after Danilo's solid performances against Croatia and Austria. Let us know in the comments section below.

Neymar's stunning World Cup warning in Brazil romp

Neymar struck just after the hour as he sensationally bamboozled the Austria defence to score and Coutinho wrapped the victory up minutes later. Youngster Gabriel Jesus scored the winning goal with a close range header in the first half.

Coutinho when then hit the crossbar while Firmino nearly got on the scoresheet as the game ended in a deserved 3-0 win to the visitors.

The striker is set to spearhead the attack for Tite's side, who begin their World Cup campaign against Switzerland on Sunday, and Alisson claims Neymar has now rediscovered his confidence.

During the tournament's group stage, Brazil will play in Group E against Switzerland (June 17, Rostov-on-Don), Costa Rica (June 22, St. Petersburg) and Serbia (June 27, Moscow, Spartak Stadium).
