Neymar scores again in warm-up friendly

NEW DELHI: Neymar found the net for the second time in a week in a morale-boosting 3-0 win for Brazil against Austria in Vienna on Sunday as the Paris Saint-Germain star forward heralded his presence with subtle skills in a pre-World Cup friendly.

Gabriel Jesus and Philippe Coutinho netted either side of Neymar’s strike in Vienna as the world's most expensive player confirmed his return to fitness following a foot operation three months ago.

The Brazilians will reach Sochi in the early hours of Monday ahead of their opening game against Switzerland on June 17.

Neymar’s goal was his 55th for his country, allowing him to draw level with Romario on his Brazil’s list of all-time leading scorers.

Only Pele and Ronaldo have scored more goals for Brazil than the PSG superstar.
