KXIP vs KKR Live Score

"He came back above the expected standard", Brazil coach Tite said.

Exceeding all expectations ahead of the World Cup, Brazil striker Neymar made a spectacular return on Sunday after a three-month absence with a foot injury and celebrated an impressive individual goal with his surgeon.

It plays its first game against Denmark on June 16.

Just minutes after Neymar's opening goal put the Selecao in front, the Croatian midfielder went right through his Barcelona teammate. Neymar is going to be just fine this summer.

When Fernandinho went off, Coutinho played a greater role and Brazil's game improved.

Subs: Neymar (8), Filipe Luís (6,5), Roberto Firmino (7,5), Marquinhos (7), Fred (6) and Taison (6).

Subs: Caleta-Car (6), Kovacic (6), Brozovic (6), Pjaca (5,5), Bradaric (6) and Jedvaj (5).

This resulted in a lack of mobility between the lines of transition.

Miranda missed a few passes early on and saw Andrej Kramaric intercept him and strike from distance, forcing Alisson work.

On Coutinho's first return to Anfield, it was noticeable how much he was whistled by sections of the crowd.

Tite wasn't getting carried away, though.

Croatia's defence worked very well as Brazil were not able to find their key player in attack.

Until the end of the first half, the game was very physical, with both sides committing fouls whenever needed.

Just last month Neymar admitted that he was anxious about the prospect of injury derailing another World Cup campaign. The Liverpool man calmly waited for the ball to bounce on the pitch and dinked it over the keeper, making it 2-0.

Neymar's goal was his 54th for his country and he needs one to reach Romario as the third most prolific Brazil striker of all time behind Pele and Ronaldo. Featuring the likes of Willian, Phillippe Coutinho and Thiago Silva, the ad is part tribute, part motivational video as the main characters are young Brazilians - boys and girls - looking to push their team and redeem themselves from the agony of 2014's disastrous loss against Germany.

Liverpool's Roberto Firmino scored Brazil's second goal in the 90th. "I respect Tite's opinion [in starting with Jesus] 100 per cent", Firmino said. Coming on after the break, Neymar changed the game and scored an incredible goal. Brazil "improved in the second half after Neymar made the difference".

The 26-year-old had surgery in Brazil amid fears he wouldn't be fit for the World Cup.

Brazil will take on Austria in Viena next Sunday, just before flying to Russian Federation.
