That pulled him level with Romario's total of 55 global goals, making him Brazil's third joint top-scorer after Pele and Ronaldo.

Four minutes later Lindner gathered Philippe Coutinho's drive and Austria survived again after a mix-up between Sebastian Prodl and Lindner nearly let Jesus in.

Will Neymar lead Brazil to victory at the World Cup?

Brazil started the game in Vienna with a midfield formation that had only been on the pitch together for 60 minutes since Tite took over the national team.

Brazil have won 17 of their 21 games since Tite took over two years ago and lost only once.

Brazil striker Neymar moved equal with one of his country's all-time greats in an ominous pre-World Cup performance against Austria.


Brazil, who crashed out of the last World Cup on home soil in a humiliating 7-1 semi-final defeat to Germany, start their campaign against Switzerland in Rostov-on-Don on Sunday.

Today Brazil played Austria in their final warm-up game before their group matches. They are looking to re-focus after their World Cup preparations were thrown off track when their match against Israel was called off.

Coutinho then made it 3-0 six minutes later when he swapped passes with former Liverpool team-mate Roberto Firmino and curled a finish around Lindner. And they have that exciting individual brilliance in the final third. Austria needed their goalkeeper Lindner to keep out drives from Neymar and Philippe Coutinho in the first 25 minutes, but they were more than holding their own against the Brazilians.

Neymar celebrated by pulling his shirt back over his head and making the "V" sign with both hands.

They will also come up against Costa Rica and Serbia in Group E. Brazil is in red-hot form after their wins over Germany and Croatia. Austria presented a similar challenge and indeed they showed that Coutinho's presence could leave them more vulnerable to counter-attacks.

If he lacked conviction in the previous outing and watched his Liverpool counterpart strengthen his case with a goal, then Jesus today looked like a man with a objective.
