Neymar & Philippe Coutinho egged in Brazil's World Cup preparations

No. 3 Algeria 2-1 West Germany 1982 Any Algerian old enough to watch will remember where he or she was when the North African country stunned one of Europe's powerhouses. Led by an assist and winning goal from Lakhdar Belloumi, A

Brazil arrived in Russian Federation yesterday as they make their final preparations ahead of their opening World Cup match against Switzerland on Sunday.

Neymar's goal in the 63rd minute was even better as he collected the ball on the left of the area, performed a drag-back which left Aleksandar Dragovic on the floor before sending his shot between Lindner's legs.

A metatarsal injury suffered in February has kept the nation's talisman on the sidelines, and initially there were concerns he wouldn't be fully fit by the time Brazil lined up against Switzerland in their tournament opener.

After a quiet start to the second half, Brazil doubled their lead in the 62nd minute as Neymar skillfully skipped past a defender before calmly slotting into the bottom corner.

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.

Injury also ruled Neymar out of Brazil's 7-1 humiliation on home soil against Germany in the 2014 World Cup semi-final but he believes Tite's current crop should make no secret of their bold ambitions in Russian Federation.

"If [Austria] opens up in defence, 'go for it, ' I told him at the break. When we release him in the last third of the field, he's lethal". Similar fouls were committed by Florian Grillitsch in the 35th and Sebatian Proedl in the 53rd.

Luka Doncic stays in draft: Where does he go?
Harris is about to enter the final year of his contract and will earn just short of $15 million next season. The speculation over whether Slovenian teenager Luka Doncic will be a part of the 2018 NBA Draft can stop.

"The match (against Austria) and the performance will decide that".

Costa's return was also good news for Tite. Brazil is in red-hot form after their wins over Germany and Croatia.

The 26-year-old's World Cup hopes were shrouded in uncertainty and the images which followed were those of pain and concern as he was carried off on a stretcher.

At the last two World Cups, Brazil have veered away from the great, attacking traditions that used to make them the team that everyone wanted to watch.

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

"You can talk, you're Brazilian and you can dream; we're dreaming more and more".

Austria failed to qualify for the World Cup. It saw a seven-match winning streak, including victories over World Cup host Russian Federation and world champion Germany, come to an end.
