Neymar Gives Philippe Coutinho The Treatment As The Latter Turns 26

FIFA World cup 2018 Brazil

Brazil concluded their final warm-up match before the World Cup in a convincing fashion as Gabriel Jesus, Neymar and Philippe Coutinho combined to ensure a 3-0 vanquish of Austria.

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.

Marko Arnautovic gave Brazil a couple of early frights before the South Americans went ahead in the 36th minute, Jesus scoring with a delightful dinked effort from a hard angle for his 10th goal in 17 internationals.

An open start saw Casemiro fire wide after eight minutes and 10 minutes later Neymar tested Heinz Lindner, shooting straight at the goalkeeper from 25 yards. Philippe Coutinho added a third after being sent deep by Roberto Firmino 20 minutes from the end.

Manchester City striker Jesus also insisted Tite's side are ready for the tournament.

Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Savannah Phillips at Beaufort Polo Club
Prince George has previously been spotted wearing another style from the Hampton Canvas range at Trotters called the Nantucket. The "Kate effect", as it has been called, is not uncommon to the Duchess of Cambridge - for whom the phenomenon is named.

The first scare came in the third minute following a late tackle from behind by midfielder Alessandro Schoepf. Similar fouls were committed by Florian Grillitsch in the 35th and Sebatian Proedl in the 53rd.

Both goals displayed the individual brilliance that has made him the most expensive transfer in football history, but yesterday's strike in the 3-0 win over Austria proved to be a historic moment. Several users shared the video on various social media platforms showing the members of the Selecao having a gala time ahead of the World Cup.

Under Tite, Brazil have regained the swagger that has been missing from recent World Cup squads. "I do not even know the limit of Neymar", Tite told reporters afterwards.

Tite said his team "can get a bit more effective but still have a week left to work on that".

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). So, heading into the 2018 World Cup, here are the lowest-ranked sides set to feature in the competition.
