Neymar marked his return to the starting line-up with another brilliant goal as Brazil eased to a 3-0 win over Austria in Vienna on Sunday in their final friendly ahead of the World Cup.

"You can talk, you're Brazilian and you can dream; we're dreaming more and more". "The match (against Austria) and the performance will decide that". This World Cup is considered an opportunity for redemption for Selecao, after the 7-1 humiliation on their home turf to Germany in the 2014 semifinals.

But such a step could prove problematic for Qatar, already struggling with the pressure of constructing eight new stadiums for the 2022 World Cup, given several countries in the region previous year severed all ties in an acrimonious diplomatic spat.

Kun, who will hopefully be back to full fitness after the knee injury which prematurely ended his domestic season, now lies third in Argentina's all-time record goal-scoring lists having secured 37 goals from 85 appearances to date and could form a potent strike force with compatriot Lionel Messi.

The Saudi team will play host Russian Federation in Group A which also includes national teams of Egypt and Uruguay.

Qualifying games for the 2022 World Cup are likely to begin in early 2019.

Pizzi will now spend the next few days getting his players in the right mental and physical state to play hosts Russian Federation in the World Cup opener on Thursday.




Tempers had flared just before that with the Brazilians taking exception to tasty tackles on Neymar and Coutinho.

"The transfer value of all the players who will take part in the World Cup is Euro 12.6 billion", explains the statement.

Neymar and Co. open their 2018 World Cup campaign versus Switzerland on Sunday 18th June, before facing Costa Rica then Serbia.

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. The Trophy Tour has been a great platform to get the entire world and the host country excited for the 2018 FIFA World Cup that kicks off in less than one week.

"We've just lost three finals in a row, which has led to us going through some hard moments with the press", added the Barcelona forward.

They have Gabriel Jesus and Philippe Coutinho, too, players who have come of age over the past year and now have a touch of arrogance and class about them.
