Neymar lands in Russia, Messi casts doubt over World Cup future

Neymar lands in Russia, Messi casts doubt over World Cup future

Germany and Brazil are the pretournament favorites, and France is fancied behind them with a young roster. They're the biggest threats to score at any time, and can make defenses look disorganized and disjointed.

Brazil fired their dreams of World Cup glory with a 3-0 win over Austria, according to Neymar - who had his fears of an injury relapse tested to the full.

But Neymar got his goal when he latched onto Willian's pass and stunning footwork saw him slot in after 63 minutes.

Jesus opened the scoring nine minutes before the break when he curled in from an angle after Marcelo's shot deflected into his path. Philippe Coutinho was also on the scoresheet on Sunday, and Willian, Douglas Costa and Roberto Firmino can be called upon.

The said match was his first competitive appearance since going on the sidelines with a fractured metatarsal while playing for the Ligue 1 champions in February. He stayed on for nearly the entire game, being replaced in the 84th by Douglas Costa. In fact, Brazil will probably be one of, if not the best, defensive team at the World Cup. And in the last game he played really well and I think that made him more confident. Even still working on his match fitness after three months sidelined by a foot injury, the PSG man netted two goals for Brazil to add to his impressive tally for the national team: with 55 in 85 matches he is now tied with Romario as the third most-prolific striker in the history of the Selecao. Similar fouls were committed by Florian Grillitsch in the 35th and Sebatian Proedl in the 53rd.

Santos's side will need no reminding of the importance of their opening match against Spain, after a 4-0 defeat by Germany in Brazil four years ago set the tone for a dismal group-stage exit. Alisson is one of the most highly rated goalkeepers in Europe and is wanted by Real Madrid, Liverpool, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain, per Hugo Cerezo of Marca. The winger only started training with the squad last week after picking up a thigh injury during Juventus' 2-1 win against Verona in the last round of Italy's Serie A top club competition. Banks' most memorable moment in an England shirt arguably came in the 1970 World Cup, though, when he pulled off what many believe to be one of the greatest saves of all time. Fred underwent further examinations in Vienna this weekend.

Brazil has the record for most World Cup championships since this event began in 1930, five to be exact.

Unbeaten now in 10 games, Brazil look very much capable of going all the way in Russian Federation.

Tite's squad is brimming with world class talent, and in Neymar, they possess a player capable of pure magic. And Chile failed to qualify after consecutive Copa America titles. The five-time world champions are feeling quite at home at the tourist destination by the Black Sea, enjoying warm temperatures and a private beach.
