Neymar goal lit up brazil to win Croatia in world cup 2018 warm up match

This is the  first time in over three months that Neymar set foot on a pitch and it only took 24 minutes from there for him to declare he was back after injury. The Warm-up game was geared up by the mere presence of the world's most expensive footballer, let alone his impact on it. Introduced at half-time to a rapturous reception in a near-full Anfield, Neymar scored the game's opening goal in the 69th minute, dancing and weaving through Croatia defenders before rifling the ball into the roof of the net.
There is no guarantee that the Paris Saint-Germain forward will be completely match-fit by the time Brazil play their World Cup opener against Switzerland on June 17. But early indications suggest the 26 year-old has recovered well from his fractured metatarsal and ankle sprain. Fortunately for Brazil and head coach Tite, the absence of Neymar no longer means the team simply cannot function. Roberto Firmino scoring Brazil's second goal on the day with a tidy finish in the dying seconds was a timely reminder of that fact.Indeed, Brazil go into Russia as one of the favourites in this game.
