Brazil vs. Croatia - Football Match Report”

Neymar came on at Anfield as a second-half substitute and made a swift impression with a superbly taken goal in the 69th minute as the five-times world champions warmed-up for this month's tournament in Russian Federation.

Philippe Coutinho returned to Anfield for the first time since leaving Liverpool for Barcelona in January as Brazil warmed up for the World Cup with a game against Croatia and he received a mixed reaction.

Second-half goals from Neymar and Roberto Firmino guided Brazil to a 2-0 win over Croatia in a friendly global at Anfield on Sunday.

The Brazilian injured the same foot playing for Paris Saint-Germain and underwent surgery in Brazil in early March.

Brazil coach Tite hailed the match-winning return of Neymar on Sunday, but insisted his side are more than a one-man team as they go in search of a sixth World Cup title.

Liverpool's Roberto Firmino scored Brazil's second goal in the 90th. "I was expecting much less".

The foreign secretary also met the Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu during the Council of Foreign Ministers Meeting. Israel's Ambassador Aviva Raz Shechter told the U.N.

This came to play on a number of occasions in the first half as Croatia's players closed goal on Alisson and the centre-backs, forcing the Brazilians to rush their passes - and even managing to put in tackles, though Kramaric was cautioned for a late, high challenge on Thiago Silva as a result.

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

At the same time, Rakitic pushed forward so that Croatia were practically playing a 4-1-3-2 when off the ball, with all five of the attacking players spread to cut down the passing options for Brazil's defenders.

"He is a player that is different but he can't be given all the responsibility to decide the game, that's not humane, he is a key part but not everything", he said, declining to comment if the 26-year-old would start in the next friendly against Austria in Vienna on June 10.

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.
