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.

Despite Brazil's chances looking up, coach Tite remains little-known outside his own country where he has spent almost entire career, coaching more than 10 teams, and including three stints at domestic club Corinthians where he made his name. Nearly two years later, "The Monster" has recovered both form and confidence and edged out his club teammate to form a partnership with Miranda, perhaps the quietest man to ever wear the captain's armband not only for Brazil.

The 41-year-old says speculation linking Brazil boss Tite with the vacant manager's job at the Bernabeu should be put on hold, and that all focus should be on the tournament in Russian Federation.

Apart from holding five championship titles, Brazil is also the world's only national squad to reach the final phase of every FIFA World Cup.

Socceroos goalkeeper Mat Ryan warned France that a new, improved Australia team are plotting an early World Cup shock when the sides meet in Kazan on Saturday. We managed to play, involve their team and make another big game.

Griezmann: Today isn't the day to discuss my future
Griezmann is set to announce his intentions before France begin their World Cup campaign against Australia next Saturday. The report states that a "very well-informed source" has told them that he has verbally agreed to join the Camp Nou club.

Manchester City striker Jesus calmly curled past Heinz Lindner to open the scoring on 35 minutes. "We came into a game with lots of [physical] contact and had a great performance".

Argentina captain Lionel Messi said his global future will be determined by his country's performance at the World Cup.

"We're going to play someone decent in the quarters and if we get beat, then I suppose everyone will say well that's about par".

"That gives you confidence".
