Michael Owen has predicted the victor of the 2018 World Cup

Shannon Reynolds | 12 June, 2018, 17:26

Brazil scored three superbly-taken goals, including a stunning Neymar effort, to beat feisty Austria 3-0 in sweltering conditions on Sunday and put the finishing touches to their impressive World Cup preparation.

Back with globoesporte, research carried out by the outlet found that from over a thousand Brazilians that were surveyed, Tite received an 8.8 mark out of 10 for Brazil's pre-friendly World Cups while Neymar received 8.1 to match the 8.2 given for his off-the-bench cameo against Croatia. With less than a week to go until the tournament, the Brazilian superstar still hadn't started a game since fracturing a bone in his foot in February.

Neymar was running at full stride against Austria.

The 26-year-old's World Cup hopes were shrouded in uncertainty and the images which followed were those of pain and concern as he was carried off on a stretcher. In particular, Coutinho was singled out for praise as a "key piece" of Tite's team who "each time" appears "more intimate with his new position" that has been created for him with a view to the coach finding a way to accommodate both the Barcelona midfielder and the in-form, ever-reliable Willian of Chelsea.

The Paris Saint-Germain star launched the flour before his strike partner Jesus cracked open an egg on Coutinho's head as he lay there helpless while his team-mates erupted with laughter.

It was also the first to determine whether a military commander bore responsibility for the conduct of troops under his control. More than 5,000 survivors took part in the proceedings against Bemba, said Amnesty's head of global justice, Solomon Sacco.

Trump and Kim sign unspecified documents
CNN has not seen the document, but Trump said it would be shared later that day. Speaking through his translator, Mr Kim said it was "not easy" to get here.

The Paris St Germain forward scored his 55th worldwide goal to go level with Romario and sit joint-third in Brazil's all-time scoring charts during their impressive victory. Philippe Coutinho added a third after being sent deep by Roberto Firmino 20 minutes from the end.

At the last two World Cups, Brazil have veered away from the great, attacking traditions that used to make them the team that everyone wanted to watch.

"Eight fouls - that shows that we use aggressive marking to try and win the ball and then come out playing", he said after Sunday's game, the last before their opening Group E game against Switzerland on June 17.
