Neymar Back A Bang As Brazil Outclass Nigeria’s World Cup Foes Croatia

Liverpool icon Dalglish urges fans: Don't boo Coutinho on Anfield return

Liverpool icon Dalglish urges fans: Don't boo Coutinho on Anfield return

Neymar had been sidelined for over three months after fracturing his foot while playing for Paris Saint-Germain against Marseille in Ligue 1 on Feb 25.

Brazil's striker Roberto Firmino (R) celebrates with Brazil's striker Neymar after scoring their second goal during the worldwide friendly football match between Brazil and Croatia at Anfield in Liverpool on 3 June 2018.

Neymar, who also withstood a few challenges in the game, received the ball from midfielder Philippe Coutinho in the 68th and dribbled past Croatia defenders Sime Vrsaljko and Duje Caleta-Car.

However, Tite urged caution over Neymar's return, and would not say if he had decided whether the 26-year-old will feature in Brazil's final pre-World Cup friendly against Austria in Vienna next Sunday.

When asked after the match about Neymar potentially joining Madrid this summer, Modric said after Brazil's win over Croatia: 'Let's see what happens'.

Croatia are Nigeria's first World Cup opponent in Russian Federation. I expected much less of him because it is a gradual process.

Now his travel restrictions seem to have been further relaxed amid efforts to organise the Kim-Trump Summit in Singapore. At the same time, a "pre-advance" U.S. team was traveling to Singapore to meet North Koreans, the White House said.

"Neymar is going to have ups and downs like he had in training until the third, fourth game (on his return)".

The Brazilians had to wait until second-half stoppage time to secure the second goal as a ball over the top found Roberto Firmino, who calmly lobbed Subasic.

Coutinho's departure from the Reds in January to join La Liga champions Barcelona left a bitter taste in a number of Liverpool fans' mouths.

When Fernandinho went off, Coutinho played a greater role and Brazil's game improved.

Brazil captain and No. 9 Gabriel Jesus was not as impressive in the first half of the match, and was replaced by Firmino after an hour.
