Cape Town - Neymar marked his return to the Brazil starting line-up with a brilliant goal as the Selecao eased to a 3-0 win over Austria in Vienna on Sunday.

Neymar's goal was his 55th in a Brazil shirt, allowing him to draw level with Romario on his country's list of all-time leading scorers - only the great Pele and Ronaldo have scored more goals for Brazil than the Paris Saint-Germain superstar.

It was a superb effort from the former Barcelona man controlling Willian's chipped pass on his thigh just inside the box and then leaving Austrian defender Aleksandar Dragovic on the floor with some delightful footwork before rolling the ball home.

A confident Brazil squad arrived in Russia in the early hours of Monday morning as they set their sights on winning the 2018 Soccer World Cup for the sixth time.
