Neymar scores as Brazil thrash Austria in pre World Cup friendly

While the Nielsen Sports did not pinpoint the exact reason for the declining interest of football among Brazilians but it said that the team's performance in last World Cup has certainly left an impression.

"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.

Brazil's coach had earlier said that Sunday's performance would inform the selection of a starting lineup for the World Cup tournament in Russian Federation.

Vast Majority of Americans Support Trump’s Meeting with Kim Jong
His advice to Mr Trump was for him to go into the one-on-one meeting with his "heart on the table". The eccentric star also said he got death threats following his return from North Korea in 2014.

Four years later, playing as hosts under Luiz Felipe Scolari, Brazil were overly dependent on Neymar as they muddled their way through to the semi-finals before losing 7-1 to Germany, when he was injured.

Make no mistake: Dani Alves will be missed by the Selecao, especially for his leadership and experience.

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.

Search for exotic eats brought Anthony Bourdain to the wilds of Maine
Argento had accused Hollywood film producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault and become a vocal critic of his. I promise you that some of them see what you're going through and they're just waiting for you to ask for help.

Manchester City's precocious striker is likely to get the nod, despite his injury-interrupted campaign for the Premier League champions, and with a record of nine goals in 16 appearances the 21-year-old has proved he belongs at this level already.

Speculation increased after the Liverpool man had a strong game against Croatia at Anfield, a match in which Jesus struggled.

The fun parts of the team are the players who surge forwards, dribble around opponents and score all of the goals but the key to this Brazil side is that they are balanced. Not even Neymar hit the net that often under Tite.

Nadal moves to Open final
The men's showpiece match between Nadal and Thiem takes place on Court Philippe-Chatrier and starts at 2pm (UK time ). Rafael Nadal thrashed Juan Martin del Potro in straight sets on Friday to storm into his 11th French Open final.

Brazil took their frustrations out constructively and Neymar forced Dragovic to ground against his will, sitting centre-back down and coolly slotting home. However, it does not mean that fans and his Selecao teammates aren't thrilled and relieved to see him back. 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. And Neymar, by the way, is only 26. Although one would surely think that Neymar would trade all his goals for the World Cup winner's medals his aforementioned cohorts collected during their sparkling careers.
