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.
