Supreme Neymar equals Romario's Brazil scoring record

Austria, who failed to qualify for Russian Federation and have not competed at a World Cup since 1998, failed to pose much of a threat, though West Ham forward Marko Arnautovic did go close in the first half.

The 2010 side, under Dunga, was packed with midfield spoilers and looked to catch opponents on the counter-attack, or from set pieces.

The 26-year-old then started in Vienna on Sunday, scoring Brazil's second in the straightforward win, of which he played 84 minutes.

Tite's men will open their World Cup campaign against Switzerland on June 17 before taking on Costa Rica and Serbia.

Without providing details of the injury, Tite said Fred's situation was "improving" but didn't hint whether the midfielder could be back for the team's World Cup opener.

The team have great balance as well, with Casemiro protecting a solid defence.

Against Austria, he had no attempt on goal in the opening hour but went down three times following rough challenges by the home side.

They will head to Russian Federation in confident mood, having lost only one out of 21 games - a friendly against Argentina - in Tite's two years in charge.

Yet, the 57-year-old coach remains little-known outside his own country where he has spent almost entire career, coaching more than 10 teams, and including three stints at Corinthians where he made his name.

Brazil played their final pre-World Cup friendly against Austria on Sunday and showed their attacking flair with goals from Gabriel Jesus, Neymar and Philippe Coutinho.

The foursome, starting together for the first time, worked superbly in hard conditions on Sunday to break down an Austria side which had beaten Germany only one week earlier.

"When you are always exchanging passes and moving the ball around, it wears the other team down", said Tite. Before noting that Brazil had beaten strong opposition in Austria and Croatia, "a candidate to advance to the quarter-finals for the second time in its history", over the last two Sundays, PVC concluded that the Seleção "arrives at the World Cup strong" and that "to win the title is a thing to discuss in the next four weeks".

"I don't know if I can say that this will be the team at the start of the World Cup", he told reporters. "His technical and creative capacity is impressive".
