Neymar's wonder goal on return from injury helps Brazil sink Croatia

Liverpool icon Dalglish urges fans: Don't boo Coutinho on Anfield return

Brazil coach Tite said he was surprised how well Neymar performed on his return from a three-month injury lay-off in Sunday's 2-0 pre-World Cup friendly win over Croatia but said the forward required patience.

And much to the delight of the sizeable home support, Liverpool playmaker Roberto Firmino added the second in added time to wrap up a comfortable win for the Brazilians.

Brazil face Austria in a friendly next Sunday before they begin their campaign for a sixth World Cup against Switzerland on June 17.

Croatia are Nigeria's first World Cup opponent in Russian Federation.

Tite has one of the deepest squads to choose from at this summer's World Cup, but some players are irreplaceable and Dani Alves certainly looks to fit that bill.

The Paris St Germain star produced a stunning individual effort in the 68th minute of his first outing since he fractured his metatarsal playing for Paris St Germain in February.

It's worth pointing out that reports are conflicting about whether you play as Bayek, his wife, Aya, or new characters altogether. Two of those sources confirmed that Odyssey will be out during Ubisoft's 2019 fiscal year, which ends on 31 March 2019.

On a swift counter-attack, Neymar collected a pass from Philippe Coutinho on the edge of Croatia's area, darting towards goal and beating three defenders before switching the ball from his left to right foot.

It was a notable afternoon also for former Liverpool striker Coutinho, who made his first appearance at Anfield since his transfer to Barcelona in January, and received a smattering of boos from some of his old club's supporters.

Russian Federation 2018 will be Neymar's second World Cup finals.

Brazil have Neymar on the bench and he is expected to come on at half time.

After a quiet opening, Croatia went close to taking the lead on 15 minutes but Alisson produced a good save to deny Luka Modric from distance.
