Michael Owen has predicted the victor of the 2018 World Cup

Russia 2018 Neymar led Brazil thrash Austria in final warm up match

Owen believes that Brazil, whose 2014 World Cup ended in such disappointment, will bounce back and lift their first trophy since 2002.

Only three minutes later, poor central defensive positioning allowed Ziyech to cross to the back post for Khalif Boutaïb to head home the eventual victor in the 40th minute. So, heading into the 2018 World Cup, here are the lowest-ranked sides set to feature in the competition. The Brazilian squad will hold a public training on June 12.

Branislav Ivanovic equalled the all-time appearance record for Serbia with his 103rd against Bolivia and capped it off with a goal.

Brazil play their opening game at the tournament on Sunday, when they take on Switzerland in Rostov-on-Don.

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.

"Spain and Germany I also like, but Brazil would be my idea of the strongest team".

UK's May says Russia must change before it returns to G8
The annual G-7 summit appeared to have weathered tensions over President Donald Trump's threats of a trade war. Putin said Washington's decision to exit the agreement could "destabilize the situation" in the region.

In Vienna yesterday afternoon, Brazil completed preparations for the World Cup with a resounding 3-0 victory over a physical Austria and goals from its leading attacking trident in Gabriel Jesus, Neymar and Philippe Coutinho.

Egypt are banking on the availability of Salah as they try to get past the first stage of a World Cup for the first time.

One young boy broke through security barriers and managed to get close to a group of Brazil players including Neymar, taking a photograph before being led away.

Neymar looked really sharp after returning from his lengthy injury spell last week when he came off the bench and scored for Brazil in a World Cup warm-up against Croatia.

The foursome, starting together for the first time, worked superbly in hard conditions on Sunday to break down an Austria side which had beaten Germany only one week earlier. Tite would be looking to make a statement with plenty of goals to open the tournament.
