The Real Brazil Is Back — Neymar

The five-time winners were beaten in the semi-final at the last tournament, losing 7-1 to eventual winners Germany on home soil in 2014. "He is the sort of player you would love on your team and of course I would prefer him to be here." added the Croatian.

The South American giants will take on Switzerland, Costa Rica and Serbia in Group E. The money at Bet365 is on Brazil. Is there any team you'd like to avoid?

Neymar will lead what is a versatile and fluid forward line, with Chelsea's Willian also expected to feature.

Brazil qualified for the 2018 World Cup by dominating the difficult CONMEBOL section, finishing 10 points clear at the top.

And former England striker Linekar has now predicted either country could add to their medal haul in Russia. We train so that we're not afraid of anyone we might go up against. It's always been that way.

The attacking and defensive strengths are based on results from all official international matches in the four years before the World Cup. They can frustrate opponents with a very well-organized 5-4-1 formation, then punish them on the counter-attack.

It all starts with Neymar for Brazil. He could have gone as an 18-year-old youngster. Bryan Ruiz is the main attacking threat, while Celso Borges of is a midfield linchpin. That's a fact of life.

(Laughs) In 2018 Neymar will be very happy at the World Cup.

After Saturday morning's (AEDT) draw in Moscow, where Brazil were matched against Switzerland, Costa Rica and Serbia in Group E, Opta gave Tite's side a 14.2 per cent chance of lifting the trophy and a 22.5 per cent chance of reaching the final.

It's probably going to be the usual suspects: "Brazil and Germany", he told FIFA.com when asked about the favourites for the 2018 World Cup. "You can't put a price on that". In Russia, they will surely want to repeat that feat. He has an in-depth knowledge of the team, and they're the world champions.

Is that something players are born with?

The answer to this question is Neymar, but the key to the key, so to speak, has been Tite finding a system and lineup to share the burden around. What have Spain got that you wish you had?

Who are the hosts for the draw? "Independently of qualification of their adversaries and their characteristics", Tite said after the draw. Do you agree with that?

Despite the renewed positivity the scars of the last World Cup run deep with Neymar. What are they? Quality training sessions, logistics that allow the players to evolve. The debut game, though, was a disappointment. The ability to deal with pressure is hugely important. "It's tricky, but we hope everything works out alright", he admitted. Or is it learned? But I don't think it matters too much. You need a whole series of factors to come together.
