Neymar goal caps impressive Brazil win over feisty Austria

Defending World Cup champion Germany is the top rated team.

Five time world champions Brazil wrapped up their preparations for the World Cup with an impressive 3-0 win against Austria in Vienna.

The Brazilians' broke the deadlock in the 36th minute as Gabriel Jesus struck home.

The Swiss Institute have calculated the market value of the participating teams in the World Cup and their calculations place France as the "most expensive", ahead of England (1,390 million), Brazil (1,270 million) and Spain (965 millions).

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.

But he marked his return to football last week with a goal, and he showed another sensational bit of skill on Sunday as he netted against Austria. It is our endeavor to reach out to every football fan in the country as per our commitment to go beyond to serve best sporting action through our programming initiatives. Imagine watching that goal as a Switzerland, Costa Rica or Serbia player.

Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler thinks that Brazil have that "formidable look" about them heading into the finals.

"So it was a way to pay tribute, because he is an idol, not just to me, but all Brazilians". Together with the Original Trophy we have traveled all around Russian Federation - from Kaliningrad to Vladivostok - and everywhere we saw the highest level of readiness for the upcoming FIFA World Cup.

With 54 caps to his name to date, the General should also be a vital cog in the Argentina defensive machine as they first look to navigate their way out of Group D where the South Americans are pitted alongside Croatia, Iceland and Nigeria. They have got that work ethic you need to win anything.

It was a quite superb effort, the former Barcelona man controlling Willian's chipped pass on his thigh just inside the box and then leaving Austrian defender Aleksandar Dragovic on the floor with some delightful footwork before rolling the ball home.

There are others who are on the brink of being considered as contenders and a few years of improvement may result in them finally breaking the barrier. Neymar is the centerpiece of what should be a dazzling attack, supported by Paulinho and Philippe Coutinho, all of whom are marvelous to watch and could find themselves with the goal of the tournament.
