The Selecao star insists the five-time champions are dreaming again of winning the World Cup in Russian Federation after cruising past Austria 3-0 in their final hit-out ahead of the tournament.

He is now equal third in Brazil's scoring charts with Romario and only behind Ronaldo (62) and Pele (77) after scoring in Vienna.

Marko Arnautovic gave Brazil a couple of early frights before the South Americans went ahead in the 36th minute, Jesus scoring with a delightful dinked effort from a hard angle for his 10th goal in 17 internationals.

According to the bookmakers, Brazil are the favourites for the 2018 World Cup.

"I do not even know the limit of Neymar", Tite told reporters afterwards.

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

Five-times champions Brazil open their World Cup campaign against Switzerland on June 17.

Those who like statistics are already salivating: Unless there is an injury, Thiago Silva is set to start the World Cup alongside Miranda in the heart of defence.

Coutinho linked up with former team-mate Firmino for his goal.

On his goal, Neymar remarkably sent defender Aleksandar Dragovic to the pitch by dragging the ball back before shooting past goalkeeper Heinz Lindner.

Austria faces Brazil in an worldwide friendly on Sunday at Ernst Happel Stadion in Vienna, Austria.

The European nation have made huge strides forward since Franco Foda took charge in October 2017, however, and had marched to seven successive victories ahead of this match. Brazil is in red-hot form after their wins over Germany and Croatia.

After a quiet opening, Austria should have taken the lead on 22 minutes but West Ham United's Marko Arnautovic somehow failed to hit the target from 10 yards out. But Coutinho makes Brazil a more efficient team and certainly much more joyful to watch.

Firmino's all-round game is perhaps more in keeping with Brazil's footballing ethos, but what this current side really calls out for is a pure goalscorer and Jesus more than fits the bill.
