Brazil goalscorer Neymar mocks Austria’s “UFC” tactics

The five-time world champions, drawn in Group E, begin their World Cup campaign against Switzerland on Sunday, 17 June before facing Costa Rica and Serbia.

Injury also ruled Neymar out of Brazil's 7-1 humiliation on home soil against Germany in the 2014 World Cup semi-final but he believes Tite's current crop should make no secret of their bold ambitions in Russian Federation.

Egypt are banking on the availability of Salah as they try to get past the first stage of a World Cup for the first time.

Austria, unbeaten in their last eight games and winners over Germany one week ago, proved uncomfortable opponents and had nothing to lose in front of a capacity 48,500 crowd, having failed to qualify for the World Cup.

And Neymar blossomed in the final half-hour - when Austria's tight defense opened up - showing off his individual skills and crowning his performance with a fine finish that further cracked Austria's resistance.

"Austria had quality and we knew it would not be easy. Not only was the attack well, the group went very well". They were filmed at the team's World Cup training base in Sochi, rushing to cover him in eggs and flour before soaking him with water.

The two men kicked off their summit with a handshake shortly after 9 a.m. local time Tuesday - 9 p.m. The video mixes both Hollywood and propaganda film tropes that play over a pulsing orchestral score.

France, who boast "world-class" talent in Antoine Griezmann and Paul Pogba, according to Australia midfielder Massimo Luongo, are among the tournament favourites in Russian Federation alongside Brazil, Germany and Spain.

Before that magnificent effort, Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus had put Brazil 1-0 up, via a fine effort from inside the box. It's not bad for me that my players can go on holiday, ' the Red Devils boss said.

"That gives you confidence".

Neymar is now level with Romario and only behind Ronaldo (62) and Pele (77) in Brazil's all-time record scoring charts.

He joked about Austria's rough approach. And we also tried to take good care of him in the training sessions.
