Brazil cover Coutinho in eggs and flour for his birthday

Brazil fired their dreams of World Cup glory with a 3-0 win over Austria, according to Neymar - who had his fears of an injury relapse tested to the full. In a friendly against Austria, Neymar started and scored Brazil's second goal, leaving a defender on his behind with a lovely move before nutmegging the goalkeeper. He also scored as a second-half substitute against Croatia a week ago.

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.

"We played another game and we proved to ourselves that we are ready for the World Cup".

If you love reveling in the World Cup and want to adopt a team with a real chance to take home the trophy, Brazil is your squad for the next month. After playing Switzerland in Rostov-on-Don on June 17, it faces Costa Rica in St. Petersburg five days later, before wrapping up its Group E campaign against Serbia on June 27 in Moscow.

Neuer is key to Germany and their quest to win back-to-back World Cups, and German fans will hope that he is back to his best in Russian Federation.
