Neymar and Gabriel Jesus were the prime instigators, rounding on Coutinho during the session.

Neymar was a good sport because he probably had that one coming.

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has predicted the four teams he believes will reach the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

France, who boast "world-class" talent in Antoine Griezmann and Paul Pogba, according to Australia midfielder Massimo Luongo, are among the tournament favourites in Russian Federation alongside Brazil, Germany and Spain.

The Paris St Germain forward scored his 55th worldwide goal to go level with Romario and sit joint-third in Brazil's all-time scoring charts during their impressive victory.

At the last two World Cups, Brazil have veered away from the great, attacking traditions that used to make them the team that everyone wanted to watch.

Manchester City striker Jesus also insisted Tite's side are ready for the tournament.

"It is time for us in Brazil to win a World Cup again", the Nike ambassador told reporters in Moscow.

"But mainly I am happy here with the national team, living a boyhood dream and working very hard to win the World Cup".

If you think the Special One's selections are spot on or he's missed the target - let us know.

Tite said his team "can get a bit more effective but still have a week left to work on that".

He latched onto a through ball from former Liverpool team-mate Roberto Firmino before sliding home.

Back in February, the Neymar lay crumpled in a heap on the floor during a game against Marseille after he sustained a fractured metatarsal.

Given that Neymar is only 26, it's not really far-fetched to imagine him reaching Ronaldo's 62 and Pele's 77 to set a record. Mourinho said as he agonized over who to pick as the World Cup winners.
