Brazil's Neymar to return from injury against Croatia

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

The Selecao struggled for momentum in the opening 45 minutes, but that all changed when the Paris Saint-Germain forward came off the bench at half time to make his first appearance in three months.

Neymar scored a brilliant goal on his return from injury as Brazil began their World Cup preparations with a win over Croatia at Anfield.

Neymar had replaced midfielder Fernandinho at halftime with the score at 0-0.

With that goal, Neymar is fast catching on the legends that Canarinho has witnessed.

However, with the game already in injury-time, Firmino showed tremendous composure in finishing off a late goal in the stadium that he frequents so regularly with Liverpool.

The Brazilian lines up at his former home this afternoon for the first time since his January move to Barcelona in an global friendly against Croatia.

There was still work to do but Neymar somehow managed to force the ball past goalkeeper Danijel Subasic and in off the cross-bar from the edge of the six-yard area.

He quickly made his mark and raised the hopes of Brazilian fans for the World Cup, which starts June 14.

Croatia's hard pressing had frustrated Brazil in the first 45 minutes and they needed keeper Alisson to get down well to keep out a drive from Andrej Kramaric after Miranda gave the ball away.

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