Worldwide friendly match report Brazil v Croatia 03 June 2018

Neymar scored a brilliant goal on his return from injury as Brazil began their World Cup preparations with a win over Croatia at Anfield.

Liverpool's Roberto Firmino wrapped the game up with a 93rd minute goal.

The defeat was Croatia's second in their last three friendly games (won one) ahead of the FIFA World Cup.

While many expect Brazil to be one of the favourites for the forthcoming World Cup, Croatia may have announced themselves as a dark horse - despite ultimately losing the match.

And Barr pointed a finger at Wanda Sykes, the show's consulting producer, for ultimately causing the show's demise. She told USA Today earlier this year that "I had to get off social media because everybody's mad at me".

Brazil will undoubtedly be careful with the 26-year-old, who is arguably their most important player.

The Brazilian injured the same foot playing for Paris Saint-Germain and underwent surgery in Brazil in early March.

Liverpool icon Kenny Dalglish has urged fans not to boo Philippe Coutinho when he returns to Anfield on Sunday.

Just last month Neymar admitted that he was anxious about the prospect of injury derailing another World Cup campaign.

After his goal, Neymar made sure to head to the Brazil bench to embrace team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar, who operated on his foot fracture three months ago.

Tite said there was no doubt that Neymar gives them something extra but said that needed to be kept in perspective.

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