Lowest-Ranked Teams At The 2018 World Cup

The Selecao superstar moved to 55 goals in 85 caps, equaling the record of 1994 World Cup victor Romario.

That pulled him level with Romario's total of 55 worldwide goals, making him Brazil's third joint top-scorer after Pele and Ronaldo. "Dreaming is not forbidden".

For Tite, however, fouling the opponents means his team has wasted a chance to win back possession of the ball and start a new attack.

In his blog on UOL Esporte, respected journalist Paulo Vinicius Coelho, known as PVC, noted how Brazil had "transformed a hard game into an easy [one]" by beating an Austria side that had won its last seven fixtures.

Brazil will open their World Cup campaign against Switzerland on Sunday before facing Costa Rica and Serbia in the group stage.

The Paris St Germain forward scored his 55th worldwide goal to go level with Romario and sit joint-third in Brazil's all-time scoring charts during their impressive victory. Brazil is in red-hot form after their wins over Germany and Croatia.

Marcelo's shot ricocheted off the Austrian block to fall kindly for Jesus, who pounced on it like a predator waiting to ambush the prey to curl a venomous effort into the bottom corner.

Lindner was a spectator as Coutinho sent one of his speciality strikes thumping against the bar, while his underworked opposite number Alisson tipped behind from substitute Stefan Hierlander in the 81st minute - preserving a fifth consecutive worldwide clean sheet before Neymar departed late on to a warm ovation.

Russian Federation was a disputed choice when it was handed the World Cup in a closely watched 2010 vote that has since been tainted by bribery charges, and the 2018 tournament takes place against a background of worldwide tensions. "We came into a game with lots of [physical] contact and had a great performance".

It was a goal you would want to watch on repeat mode and still not get enough of it. "We deserved the victory, we played very well", added Barcelona forward Coutinho to the Brazilian FA.

"France obviously have a lot of good players but I'm a bit sceptical about them in tournaments".

Brazil are back! And boy can they play.

He joked about Austria's rough approach.
