FIFA World Cup 2018: Brazil dreaming of sixth title, says Neymar
The PSG forward scored his 55th international goal to go level with Romario and sit joint-third in Brazil's all-time scoring charts during their 3-0 win over Austria on Sunday
Brazil striker Neymar insists the five-time champions are dreaming of winning the World Cup again in Russia. The PSG forward scored his 55th international goal to go level with Romario and sit joint-third in Brazil's all-time scoring charts during their 3-0 win over Austria on Sunday.
Gabriel Jesus and Philippe Coutinho also netted in a comfortable victory ahead of Brazil's opening World Cup game against Switzerland next Sunday. "You have to trust, you dream," Neymar told reporters.
"You can talk, you're Brazilian and you can dream; we're dreaming more and more. Dreaming is not forbidden." Manchester City striker Jesus also insisted Tite's side are ready for the tournament. "All the games before the World Cup were important to reach this level of performance," Jesus, who now has 10 international goals, told the Brazilian FA.
"Austria had quality and we knew it would not be easy. We managed to play, involve their team and make another big game. Not only was the attack well, the group went very well."
Brazil beat Croatia 2-0 in Liverpool last week before Sunday's victory. "The game was important to us. It was the last game of preparation before the World Cup. We deserved the victory, we played very well," added Barcelona forward Coutinho to the Brazilian FA. "That gives you confidence. I always try to be prepared to play where the coach needs me and contribute in the best way possible."
