Watch: Neymar And Coutinho Finish Stylish Goals As Awesome Brazil Cruise Into World Cup

In the summer of 2016, Tite was appointed Brazil head coach following Dunga's sacking. 12 games and 32 points later they approach the World Cup as favourites.

Today Brazil played Austria in their final warm-up game before their group matches. It was a big occasion for Neymar, who had not started a game since February due to a broken bone in his foot. Tite has worked to address any perceived reliance on the PSG star by incorporating both Gabriel Jesus and Phil Coutinho into a fluid front three and it has paid dividends. Today all three of that attacking trio scored.

Coutinho linked up with former team-mate Firmino for his goal.

Brazil also have Willian as a potential inclusion in that front three, while their midfield looks significantly more balanced with Casemiro and Paulinho working together.

With a relatively comfortable group of Costa Rica, Serbia and Switzerland, Tite and Brazil have an outstanding chance of avenging the heartbreak from 2014.
