  • Liverpool icon Dalglish urges fans: Don't boo Coutinho on Anfield return

As Neymar was signing the Brazil shirt (before Modric did the same) you can here the Croatian say "We're waiting for you, eh" and the Brazilian responds with a smile.

Well, the 26-year-old recovered ahead of time to join Brazil's squad in the pre-World Cup preparatory games.

Brazil will face Croatia on Sunday and play one more friendly against Austria before the start of the World Cup.

Liverpool's Roberto Firmino scored Brazil's second goal in the 90th.

Aside from Neymar's moment of magic, Brazil did add a second with the last kick of the contest as Roberto Firmino scored on his club ground to cap off the victory.

Neymar had been sidelined for over three months after fracturing his foot while playing for Paris Saint-Germain against Marseille in Ligue 1 on Feb 25.


Coutinho earned a warm reception from the Anfield crowd as he was replaced late on by Fred, who has been tipped to complete a move to Manchester United in the coming days.

The highlight of the Anfield game came when Neymar dribbled past two opposition defenders, firing high into the roof of the net in emphatic fashion.

If Liverpool fans and players were gutted that they didn't win the Champions League final then Philippe Coutinho might have been even more gutted, he'd have won a medal for barely doing anything.

He joined Jesus and Willian in attack, with Coutinho dropping into the midfield place vacated by Fernandinho.

Croatia's biggest chance came in the first half from a corner as Dejan Lovren's header spun just wide of the left post.
