His break-up play and last-ditch tackles will be the key to success for Brazil as both Neymar and Willian will be lurking on the wings to start a counter.

"Of course, the Brazil job is bigger than any club job, but Tite has always been a good coach. They can reach the final".

It's been said before that losing Neymar in 2018 would not be as traumatic as it was back in 2014. Brazil shines under the bright lights more often than not. After drawing friendlies against England, France and Spain, Joachim Loew's team lost 1-0 to Brazil to end a 22-game unbeaten run.

The Selecao were in a parlous state when he took the reins, still haunted by the spectre of the harrowing 7-1 semi-final loss to Germany and hamstrung by a lack of vision from on high.

But that was then and this is now. Four-time champion Italy will be watching from home for the first time since 1958, its streak of 14 consecutive appearances ended by a playoff loss to Sweden. While playing for Paris Saint-Germain in France's Ligue 1 back in February, Neymar suffered a foot fracture.

Since Tite took over as coach in 2016, the five-time world champions have become a winning machine again and were the first to qualify for Russian Federation.

The Brazilians landed in the early hours in Sochi, the Black Sea resort where they will be based, buoyant after beating Austria 3-0 in their final warm-up match.

Neymar's stunning World Cup warning in Brazil romp

His fellow attackers Gabriel Jesus and Coutinho also scored in a match where Brazil dominated Austria that has been on an eight match unbeaten streak.

Manchester City striker Jesus also insisted Tite's side are ready for the tournament. Brazil are the only team in history to have qualified for all World Cups in the past, and even here, were the first team to book their place. In the Champions League final against Liverpool, Klopp's pressing focused specifically on closing down the Brazilian and forcing him to make plays. The Real Madrid midfielder is the driving force behind the side. Even if awful fate befalls Neymar and he is injured again, or cannot reach the fitness levels required after a lengthy spell of inactivity, Brazil are supplemented by others who can help them prevail. Gabriel Jesus and Philippe Coutinho bagged the other goals. It's the formation Costa Rica also apply. Shahktar Donetsk's Taison provides another option.

This isn't your 2014 Brazil World Cup squad.

His nickname dates back to that time: he went by Ade until Scolari, mixing him up with another youngster, introduced him as Tite. Now 34, he is currently winding down his career with Cruzeiro. Silva's PSG colleague Marquinhos would be forgiven if he feels gutted: he played the majority of the games under Tite as the Brazilians kept 16 clean sheets in 21 occasions.

Neymar has space to breathe.

Coutinho seemed to laugh off the prank as Brazil prepare for their World Cup opener against Switzerland on Sunday.
