Worldwide friendlies: Austria 0-3 Brazil, 5 Talking Points

No. 2 Switzerland 1-0 Spain 2010Switzerland's midfielder Gelson Fernandes celebrates with teammates after scoring the only goal of the second biggest World Cup upset in history. Spain would however recover to win the tournament held in South A

Neymar joked about Austria's tactics after Brazil cruised to a 3-0 friendly win on Sunday and said his team are dreaming big ahead of FIFA World Cup 2018.

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.

Neymar made it two just past the hour mark as he latched onto Willian's chipped pass before sitting Aleksandar Dragovic down with an impudent piece of skill and sidefooting home.

The victory capped Brazil's World Cup preparations ahead of their opener in Russian Federation against Switzerland next Sunday.

There were brief fears for Neymar early on when Austria captain Julian Baumgartlinger trod on his ankle.

After the win over Austria, Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar insists he and his team-mates are dreaming of winning the World Cup once again.

Brazil attracted hordes of fans who gathered around the pitch where the team is practising.

Tite's men will open their World Cup campaign against Switzerland on June 17 before taking on Costa Rica and Serbia.

Roberto Firmino's incredible season with Liverpool led to increasing calls in Brazil for Tite to find a place for him in the starting XI, mostly by giving him Jesus' spot in attack.

Firmino's all-round game is perhaps more in keeping with Brazil's footballing ethos, but what this current side really calls out for is a pure goalscorer and Jesus more than fits the bill. The Brazilian figure dropped from 72 per cent in 2013, the year before the country hosted the World Cup.

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

Austria failed to qualify for the World Cup.

Since turning into an ever-present for Zinedine Zidane in La Liga, Casemiro has developed into one of the world's best holding midfield players and Brazil have benefitted for it.

The Selecao will now fly to Russia fresh from victories over Croatia, Austria, Russia and the defending world champions, Germany.
