VIENNA: Brazil scored three superbly-taken goals to beat feisty Austria 3-0 in sweltering conditions on Sunday to put the finishing touches to their impressive World Cup preparations.

Gabriel Jesus put Brazil ahead in the 36th minute with a delightful dinked finish past Heinz Lindner before Neymar, starting a game for the first time since his injury in February, added a stunning second goal in the 63rd minute

Neymar left Aleksander Dragovic on the floor with a dragback and then scored with a shot between Lindner’s legs.

Six minutes later, substitute Roberto Firmino set Philippe Coutinho clear down the left and he curled his shot wide of Lindner for the third.

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