  • Russia 2018 Neymar led Brazil thrash Austria in final warm up match

He was injured a few minutes from the end in their 2-1 quarter-final win over Colombia.

Brazil has been limiting fans' access to players since its chaotic World Cup preparations in 2006, when the usually calm lakeside resort city of Weggis in Switzerland turned into what looked like a state fair as thousands of people flocked to town to watch Brazil's open practice sessions under coach Carlos Alberto Parreira.

Those teams had one thing in common: they used repetitive fouling in midfield to break up attacks.

He has overseen steady progress since taking over, reaching the final of the 2008 European Championship, claiming third place at the 2010 World Cup and reaching the semifinals at Euro 2012 before finally winning a title in convincing fashion at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

But, for Tite, fouling the opponents means his team have wasted a chance to win back possession of the ball and start a new attack. The Swiss and the Brazilians are considered the favourites to march out of Group-E.

Tite has preferred veteran Miranda at the heart of his defence at the expense of PSG stalwart Thiago Silva, while Danilo, on paper at least, looks the weakest link in the chain. "We hope that he can be our top scorer and can bring the World Cup to Brazil".

The individual talent is there as always but the team are better balanced than their unloved recent predecessors. "We won. Not just because we won but before the World Cup I got a very hard injury and a long time for recovering".

Brazil have won 17 of their 21 games since Tite took over two years ago and lost only once. They have scored 47 goals, conceded just five and kept 16 clean sheets.

-- BRAZIL TOUCH DOWNThe Brazilian squad arrived in Russian Federation on Monday morning as they set their sights on winning the World Cup for the sixth time. The 58-year-old has previously apologized after being caught on camera picking his nose or in other compromising positions during games.

In Russia, he is set to play a key role for the five-time champions.

A week before Brazil's World Cup opener against Switzerland, Neymar started for the first time since recovering from fracturing his right foot which kept him out for three months.

"People talk a lot, I do not know what they are talking about that". "His technical and creative ability is fantastic".

'We need Neymar on the field'.

"Me neither", Ronaldo says. "The competitive concentration of these athletes is commendable".

"Today was another example that, mentally, we are maturing".

"But I do like our manager, I like our system and we have a couple of match winners in there".

"I'm not anxious. In 2014 and 2010 we also lost in March", Loew said.

"It will depend on how far we go, how we're going to finish", Messi said in an interview with Spanish daily Sport.

Messi, who will turn 31 during the World Cup, believes Spain, Brazil, Germany, France and Belgium are the leading contenders for the title.

Argentina launch their campaign against Iceland on Saturday, with games to follow against Croatia and Nigeria in Group D.
