Neymar's stunning World Cup warning in Brazil romp

The ace forward is his country's biggest hope at the upcoming FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation and will be tasked with spearheading the Tite-coached team's attack.

As the squad trained in the blistering heat in Sochi, the players took it upon themselves to lighten the mood by covering the Barcelona playmaker in eggs and flour, as is tradition in Brazil.

Gabriel Jesus got the scoring started against Austria and in doing so probably made sure of a starting place ahead of Roberto Firmino in Brazil's World Cup opener against Switzerland next Sunday.

Brazil concluded their European warm-up ahead of the 2018 World Cup by beating Austria 3-0, thanks to goals from Gabriel Jesus, Neymar and Philippe Coutinho.

The most extreme examples were the Confederations Cup final against Spain in 2013 when Brazil battered their opponents with 26 fouls and the infamous World Cup quarter-final against Colombia in 2014, where they gave away 31 free kicks.

Fans shouted "Austral-iya" several times during training and also "Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, go, go, go".

"The concentration and competitiveness of the team was laudable", Brazil coach Tite told reporters.

"The game was important to us".

A big question mark hangs over the participation of Egypt and Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah, who is still receiving treatment for the shoulder injury he suffered in the Champions League final.

Coutinho nearly got his second and Brazil's fourth in the 73rd minute but his curling strike from distance rattled the upright with Linder well beaten.

Argentina captain Lionel Messi said his global future will be determined by his country's performance at the World Cup. Fred underwent further examinations in Vienna this weekend. "We deserved the victory, we played very well", Coutinho said.

Tite's side - out to put right their 7-1 semi-final defeat to Germany four years ago - also face Costa Rica and Serbia in Group E.
