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.
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.
