The ‘Seleção’ won the Sunday in Vienna also the final friendly. The Brazilians defeated Austria 3-0 thanks to goals from Gabriel Jesus, Neymar and Philippe Coutinho.

The five-fold world champion had earlier this year won by Russia (3-0), Germany (1-0) and Croatia (2-0). The team of coach Tite begins the hunt for the sixth world title next Sunday in Rostov against Switzerland. The other opponents in the group are Costa Rica (on 22 June) and Serbia (27 June).

Neymar equals Romario

Attacker Neymar started against Austria for the first time in the basis since the end of February, a small bone in his foot broke during a league game of his club Paris Saint-Germain. The most expensive footballer in the world last week as a substitute against Croatia already scored and did that in Vienna after more than an hour to play again, after a flashy action along two defenders. With a feint to put Neymar the Austrians on the wrong leg, then his 55th match for the national team within a lap. Neymar matched with that number of Romario. Only Ronaldo (62) and Pele (77) are still above him.

Striker Gabriel Jesus had ten minutes before the rest of the score is opened, when a cracking shot from full Marcelo for his feet landed. Coutinho curled the ball in the 69th minute past the Austrian keeper and signed for the 3-0. Austria had the previous seven international matches, all won, but proved no match for the Brazilians.
