Brazil finished off their World Cup warm-up schedule with an impressive 3-0 win over Austria in Vienna.
Tite’s squad is brimming with world class talent, and in Neymar, they possess a player capable of pure magic.
On 63 minutes, the PSG attacker produced a moment of sheer fleet-footed, bamboozling Leicester defender Aleksandar Dragović and leaving him on his arse, before slotting past Heinz Lindner…
That goal was Neymar’s 55th for the Seleção, with only Pele and Ronaldo scoring more.
55 – Neymar is now the joint-third top goalscorer for Brazil, level with Romário on 55 goals. Only Pelé (77) and Ronaldo (62) have scored more. Superstar. pic.twitter.com/wwSgPe68UZ

Before that magnificent effort, Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus had put Brazil 1-0 up, via a fine effort from inside the box.
Soon after Neymer’s goal, which was set up by Chelsea’ Willian, Philippe Courinho scored another cracker, after a slick one-two with former Liverpool team-mate Roberto Firmino.
Coutinho when then hit the crossbar while Firmino almost got on the scoresheet as the game ended in a deserved 3-0 win to the visitors.
Unbeaten now in 10 games, Brazil look very much capable of going all the way in Russia.
