Neymar nets superb solo strike/Jesus & Coutinho also on the scoresheet as Brazil beat Austria (Video)

Brazil put Austria to the sword by 3 goals to nil this evening in their final warm-up clash ahead of the World Cup.

Matchup

The two countries went head to head at the Ernst-Happel-Stadion, with the class of the South American giants having eventually proven too much for Austria.

Goals from Gabriel Jesus, Neymar and Philippe Coutinho proved the difference on the day, as Brazil continued their superb recent run of form under manager Tite.

And it was 2-0 half an hour later, as Willian slipped Neymar in on the left side of the hosts’ box, before the PSG superstar made Aleksandar Dragovic the latest victim of his sensational footwork with a sumptuous shimmy and composed finish:

And the dominance of the Selecao on the day saw Tite’s men justly rewarded with a 3rd with 20 minutes remaining, as Philippe Coutinho got in on the act, collecting a through ball from former Liverpool teammate Roberto Firmino before angling home a typically-cool finish:
