Since recovering from the broken metatarsal injury suffered with PSG in February this year, Neymar has scored in consecutive fixtures upon his return.

Jesus, Neymar and Coutinho got the goals as Tite's side produced an extremely encouraging performance in their final warm-up match.

Roberto Firmino and Brazil are heading into the World Cup in fine form after beating Austria 3-0 in their final pre-tournament friendly on Sunday. After cruising to the semifinal of the 2014 World Cup, they were embarrassed on their home soil by Germany, falling 7-1 after the German side scored four goals in six minutes in the first half.

His goal was sublime as he left one defender on the ground before scoring between goalkeeper Heinz Lindner's legs.

It was also the first time the quartet of Neymar, Jesus, Coutinho and Willian had started a game together.

Brazil also face Costa Rica and Serbia in Group E in Russian Federation as they look to hit back from their shock 7-1 semi-final defeat to Germany on home soil four years ago. "I do not even know the limit of Neymar", Tite told reporters afterwards.

"But I do like our manager, I like our system and we have a couple of match winners in there".

Brazil has always been the juggernaut of global soccer, having won six World Cups over the years - more than any other country on the planet.

With the temperature hot enough for water breaks, tempers frayed as Casemiro replied with a rough tackle of his own.

Gabriel Jesus gave Brazil the lead after 36 minutes with a slick finish from a tight angle.

That goal puts him joint-third top goalscorer with Romario.

Philippe Coutinho got in on the act six minutes later and the Barcelona playmaker also crashed against the crossbar as Tite's side sounded a statement of intent ahead of Russian Federation 2018.

Sublime control, unmatched skills and a poised finish was what resulted into a stunning effort by the Brazilian - who will be carrying a lot of weight of expectations on his shoulders in Russian Federation.

Brazil have not lost since June 2017, a run of 10 games, and have kept 16 clean sheets in 21 games since Tite took over in June 2016.
