Neymar Nets Stunner On Brazil Return

International Friendly Report: Brazil v Croatia 03 June 2018

International Friendly

Teams: Brazil 2-0 Croatia

Date: 03 June 2018

Venue: Anfield

Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar scored a superb goal on his return to action as Brazil defeated Croatia 2-0 at Anfield on Sunday.

Neymar was named on the bench by head coach Tite, while Chelsea star Willian lined up in the attack alongside Gabriel Jesus and Philippe Coutinho.

After a quiet opening, Croatia went close to taking the lead on 15 minutes but Alisson produced a good save to deny Luka Modric from distance.

Tite's men enjoyed most of the possession in the first half and utilised Willian on the right wing on numerous occasions, although the final ball was not up to par.

That was the trend for the rest of half as neither side could carve out another opening and the sides went into the break goalless.

Neymar was introduced at the start of the second half, replacing Fernandinho for his first appearances since sustaining an ankle injury in February.

Croatia went close to breaking the deadlock after 59 minutes when Kramaric's cross found Rebic, who sent a glancing header just wide of the mark.

The deadlock was eventually broken on 68 minutes as Neymar skipped past three challenges before smashing the ball into the roof of the net.

The Croatians struggled to get any momentum going forward and with Luka Modric off the pitch, they lacked creativity in the final third.

Selecao eventually sealed the win in second-half stoppage time as Roberto Firmino out-muscled his marker before lobbing the ball into the back of the net.
